9442aed429c411e384b222000a1fbcf6_5This is a great go-to recipe.  It is fabulous because it is raw and contains chia seeds which are very nutritious because they are loaded with omega 3’s, antioxidants, and fiber.  When mixed with liquid, they plump giving the mixture a tapioca-like consistency.  This recipe is extremely versatile as well, you can literally add just about anything to it an top it with your favorite fruits, nuts, seeds, or coconut.

3/4 cup chia seeds
4 cups almond milk or coconut milk
2 vanilla beans (split down the center and seeds removed) or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6-8 tablespoons erythritol (like Swerve) or stevia to taste (pure stevia, about 1/2 teaspoon to start and add more if desired.  Spoonable stevia – start with 2 teaspoons and add from there. Liquid stevia – start with 1 teaspoon and add from there)

Add almond milk, vanilla, and sweetener to a blender and mix well.  With the blender on a very low setting, add the chia seeds and mix.  If you would like to add other ingredients, do it here.  Transfer to a container and stir every 5 minutes for the first 15 minutes then let sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour.  Transfer to the refrigerator.  When ready to serve, add toppings.
