5 pitted Medjool dates (this will be on the sweet side. If you like things less sweet, reduce number of dates)
2 tablespoon chia seeds
½ cup soy milk (or other plant based milk)
1 tsp vanilla
2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoon decaf coffee ☕️(this is an option – if you want mocha flavored)
Place all ingredients in a high powered blender and mix until fully smooth. Then place into small cups. This recipe makes two servings. Top with whatever you enjoy. I used walnuts and cocoa nibs for one and peanut butter and cocao nibs for the other. I ate mine for breakfast today 😋.
Chia seeds are one of the best plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to help increase “good” HDL cholesterol, decrease “bad” LDL cholesterol, reduce blood triglycerides and alleviate inflammation. Chia seeds are great as thickeners so are perfect for this recipe.
If you are interested in learning more about the nutrition of chia seeds and how they compare to other plant based omega 3 foods (notably hemp seeds and flax seeds) then Google ‘Chia vs Hemp vs Flax, quick and dirty.’ it makes for a great read!!
Now go and enjoy!!
