About this Recipe
Chia seeds form a gelatinous-like texture when mixed with liquid and can be used as an egg replacement in some vegan recipes (use 1 part chia to 3 parts water).
Step by Step Instructions
- 400ml coconut milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 ½ tbsp maple syrup
- 3 tbsp finely shredded coconut
- ½ cup chia seeds (white or black) + 1 extra tbsp
Shake the can of coconut milk and empty it into a bowl. Add the vanilla extract and maple syrup and stir until blended. Add in the coconut and the chia seeds and stir again until blended.
Keep refrigerated overnight, or until it sets, then serve with fresh berries.
Black and white chia seeds have a very similar nutritional profile and can be used interchangeably. Both are a great source of essential fats and soluble fibre, which is beneficial for gut health.
