Almond milk chia dessert

Almond milk chia dessert

Almond milk chia dessert is very healthy and it allows a slow release of energy for hours. This photo shows it served on buckwheat. It can also be served by itself or as a topping for other food.

This recipe is one from the raw food demo at the Auckland Veg Food & Lifestyle Festival by Michele K La Chante of Living Foods.



2 cups of almond milk
6 dates (these can be soaking in the almond milk in order to soften them)
1 teaspoon vanilla powder
1 teaspoon kelp
6 – 8 drops of Berry Stevia (or other flavour of your choice)
2 heaped teaspoons of raw cacao powder (optional and be prepared to increase the sweetener since cacao is bitter)

1/3 cup of chia seeds

  1. Blend all of the above ingredients except the chia seeds together in a blender until completely smooth.
  2. Into a container add 1/3 of a cup of raw chia seeds and then over the top of the seeds pour the vanilla milk mixture from above.
  3. Stir well and allow to sit minimum of 12 hours or for a couple of days in the fridge in order to thicken up.
  4. Serve up for breakfast over chopped up fruit, with dehydrated buckwheaties or have as a dessert with chocolate sauce.
