Frozen berries top this easy dessert with a 5-minute prep time… because it’s hot out there.
Chia seeds are truly a super-food packed with antioxidants, fiber and loads of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, so they are a particularly good Paleo-friendly choice for vegans and vegetarians.If you prefer a sweeter dessert, use sweetened coconut or almond beverage, otherwise use unsweetened. You could also try a vanilla flavored beverage and skip the additional vanilla in the recipe.
- ½ cup chia seeds
- 3 cups almond or coconut beverage sweetened or unsweetened, depending on your taste.
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder I used King Arthur Flour's Black Cocoa Powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup mixed frozen berries PLUS another 1 cup for serving.
- Combine all of the ingredients except for 1/2 of the frozen berries. Cover the mixture and refrigerate for 2-3 hours to give the chia seeds time to swell and absorb the liquid. Spoon into individual ramekins or small serving bowls and top each with an even portion of the remaining frozen berries. Serve immediately.
