Smoothie in winter? You betcha! Just chill on the frozen fruit, alright? And remember to…
Get dem omega 3s fam!
A healthy dose of ALA is served up in this recipe, and it is a delicious and easy way to go about getting it, especially if you eat a plant-based diet.
Blending it schmooooov is so much nicer IMO.
Perfect as breakfast, lunch or dessert. Convenient to take in a jar to work.
Even though chia and flax seeds are protein (and fibre) rich, I like to make this recipe with a high protein plant milk like this one or a concentrate like VV Mylk sunflower or hazelnut – personal faves.
I make it in family sized portions as we all like it (bar one small human!) and it keeps well in the fridge for 3-5 days.
As always, a recipe like this is the perfect way to sneak some medicinal mushies or tonic herbs into your family’s day! A tsp of mushrooms, or perhaps some immune boosting astragalus, would provide the magic touch.
On another note, this pudding is so satiating and makes you poop like a dream!
You can always count on me to take the chat to that level. You are not a real nurse if you don’t have a genuine interest in bowel motions. Just saying…
Hmmm if I haven’t put you off, let’s get to it…
3/4 cup of chia seeds
3 tbsp flaxseeds
1/3 cup cacao powder or cocoa powder
1 tsp Ceylon cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
Pinch of sea salt
3 tbsp maple syrup or honey
2 + 1/4 cups of plant milk of choice
Add chia and flax seeds to high powered blender or Thermomix.
Blitz on high speed until fine, like a coarse flour.
Add in all other ingredients and blitz on high speed until blended smooth and mousse-like.
Place in an jar or container and store it in the fridge.
We love a generous blob of this pud’ with some vanilla yogurt and stewed or fresh fruit, or even some berry compote. Banana and gold kiwifruit are our current fave accompaniments – thank you autumn.
Anyway, I love ya lots and be sure to get this in your fridge ASAP – and on the regular.
