Chocolate Chia Pudding

chocolatechiapuddingWe really love our creamy coconut chia pudding, and now we’ve found the perfect milk-chocolate flavored version.  Whenever you crave a chocolate pudding (kind of like a chocolate Tapioca), this is the winner both in taste and health benefits.

Chia gel is a very soothing fiber for your digestive tract, and the seeds are high in protein and Omega-3 EFA’s (anti-inflammatory).  The combination of part raw cacao and part raw carob creates a very balanced milk-chocolate flavor and makes it easier for your body to uptake the magnesium and calcium minerals in each when eaten together.

Chocolate Chia Pudding

3.5 Cups Coconut Milk (So Delicious brand unsweetened)
1/2 Cup Chia Seeds

Stir well and soak chia seeds in above liquids for at least 30 minutes or overnight.

Blend 1 cup of soaked chia seeds with:
1/4 Cup Vanilla Agave Nectar (or Honey)
1/2 Cup Coconut Flakes
2 Tbsp Cacao Powder
2 Tbsp Carob Powder
1/4 tsp Sun Fire Salt
1/4 tsp Cinnamon

Add blended mix (it’s a bit paste-like it’s so thick) back into the rest of the soaked chia seeds and stir well.  Keep it refrigerated and Enjoy!

Frozen Chocolate Bliss

Chocolate Bliss Popsicle

Chocolate Bliss Popsicle

We’ve tried making popsicles out of Chocolate Bliss, however it settles so quickly in the popsicle mold, that it doesn’t turn out right from a straight pour.

To make popsicles you need to add some more fiber and fat to the Chocolate Bliss to keep it from settling.  We’ve found this works best by blending the standard Chocolate Bliss recipe with some cashews or avocado.

A ratio of about 2 parts liquid Chocolate Bliss to 1 part cashews or avocado works well for the popsicle structure and makes the flavor a little more milk-chocolatey.

Chocolate Bliss Slushy

Chocolate Bliss Slushy

If you prefer a stronger chocolate taste, we recommend you put a mason jar of Chocolate Bliss in the freezer for about 2-3 hours and shake before drinking it (or spooning it out of the jar).  This frozen version of bliss tastes like a fudgesicle in slushy form.

Pickled Foods

raw picklesRaw pickling is an excellent way of getting more fermented, probiotic foods into your diet.

Cucumbers are the most obvious food to pickle (the original pickle!), but increasing the variety of foods you pickle can keep your tastebuds satisfied year-round.  A few variations we particularly enjoy are

Kohlrabi

Beets

Ginger

When you pickle, you can either go for a simple salt-brine, or a tangy-sweet vinegar brine.  Here are some basics with links to additional recipes …
