Ingredients
  • 2 cups Coconut Milk (also great with Coconut Water or Almond Milk)
  • 1 cup Chia Seeds, soaked (in 1 cup of the Coconut Milk)
  • ½ cup Cashew Flour (works with any nut meal; Cashews are especially creamy!)
  • ½ cup Raisins (Optional: Goji berries, Cranberries, Banana, Strawberry)
  • Spices: 1 Tbsp. coconut oil, 1 pinch of sea salt
  • Optional Spices: Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cocoa (I didn't use any this time - worked great!)
Instructions
  1. Soak your chia seeds in your breakfast bowl for at least 20 minutes before use.
  2. Optional: You can pre-soak chia seeds in the Coconut Milk in the refrigerator for several days for easy use.
  3. In a soup pan combine the Coconut Milk, Cashew Flour, and Chia Seeds and warm over low heat (2 out of 10).
  4. Add in the Raisins, Sea Salt, Coconut Oil, and any of the optional spices.
  5. Continue to warm slowly over low heat for an additional 5-10 minutes.
  6. Now serve and enjoy!
Notes
To serve this as a desert:
Add 1 tablespoon Maple Syrup, and a fresh berry topping, like Raspberries.
