Chia seeds, high in Omega 3 fatty acids, have an interesting ability to gel up upon mixing with liquid and create an almost tapioca-like texture. I kept this version unsweetened, but you could definitely add in some honey or maple syrup to make it more dessert-like. It’s best to let the chia seeds sit for 1-2 hours to soften and absorb as much liquid as possible which will yield a nice thick texture. Feel free to experiment with different spices as well.
1 cup full-fat coconut milk
3 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1. Mix the chia seeds and coconut milk together in a mason jar or other glass container.
2. Blend in the vanilla extra and spices.
3. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours (but at least 30 minutes) for best texture. Serve with shave of dark chocolate, a splash of maple syrup or just as is.
