Inspired by one of the most sold desserts after yogurt (rice pudding), this chia seed dessert is much lighter and delivers a real punch in matter of nutrients such as fibre, essential Omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, vitamin C, powerful antioxidants and many essential phytonutrients, thanks to green tea and açaì powder. Plus, it is a lot less sweeter than your average rice pudding and contains no manufacturing additives such as colourings, preservatives, trans fat, etc. and can be a brilliant replacement for porridge.
This dessert is suitable for Raw Dieters, as it does not require any cooking, and also Paleo followers, and it is mostly a complete protein (Lysine being the restrictive Amino Acid).
RECIPE PER PERSON:
2 tbsp Chia Seeds
4 Almonds (or any of your favourite nuts)
4 tbsp Hot water
2 tbsp Coconut Milk (at room Temperature)
1 Square of White Chocolate (to sweeten – optional)
or 1 tsp of Agave/Brown Rice Syrup)
½ Lemon Juice
Small Pea Size Grated Ginger (optional)
1 tbsp Matcha-Coconut-Sesame Mix
¼ tsp Açai Berry Powder (optional)
Goji Berries (to sweeten – optional. Or other soft dried berries)
N.B. Matcha is very powerful in taste, a tiny bit suffices.
