Implementing new idea: peanut butter/cocoa/chia

Why not to start a day with a dessert? The chia morning meal does not give an energy, it gives a power!

This chia dessert is a separate morning meal for me. Some ingredient variations are possible, but I try to keep it unaltered.

Ingredients:

  • Chia seeds, 2 Tbsp
  • Peanut butter (or almond butter), unsalted, 1 Tbsp
  • Cocoa powder, 1 Tbsp
  • Ashwagandha or maca powder (optional), 0.5 tsp
  • Dates (3 pcs) or ripe banana (0.5-1 pcs)
  • Water, 1 cup
  • Walnuts, soaked overnight, 20-30 g (or fresh coconut pieces)
  • White mulberry, dry, 20-30 g
  • Goji berry, dry, 20-30 g
  • Blueberries for decoration and taste of freshness
  • Strawberries for decoration and taste of freshness
Ingredients for peanut butter/cocoa/chia smoothie desert

How to make it:

  • Mix in a blender peanut butter (or almond butter), cocoa powder, ashwagandha powder and dates (or banana) with water
  • Transfer the mixture into a bowl, add chia seeds and mix well by using a hand whisk
  • Let it stay for at least 15 minutes, mix it time to time to avoid chia seeds being stuck together into clumps

  • After 15 min, add dry mulberries and goji berries and let it stay for 15-30 minutes more
  • Pour the ready mixture into a glass of your choice and decorate with fresh berries or coconut pieces

Chia dessert is ready now!

These cocktail glasses are the gift from a friend of mine. Thank you, dear Shelly, for the beautiful glasses, they are always in demand for chia desserts!

Important notes:

  • The amount of the base for chia dessert (peanut butter mixture with chia seeds) could be made in advance for two days and kept in a refrigerator. Be sure you will use it next day, because as fresh it is, as better in many aspect.
  • Once I forget to add dates into a mixture for blending. So, I just added whole dates into a ready dessert. It was a little bit strange but a new taste feeling while finding those islands of sweet dates between non-sugary chia dessert base:)
  • In this dessert (morning meal) combination of whole dates and fresh coconut pieces is luscious!
