Chia seeds, goji berries and many other types of imported superfoods line the shelves of most health food markets, but the problem is...many of us don't know what the heck to do with them! And at a steep price point, experimenting might not seem particularly inviting.
Of course, this is one recipe I promise will be worth the culinary adventure. It takes minimal preparation time and makes and excellent dessert or special snack.
Goji Berry Vanilla Chia Pudding:
3-3.5 cups homemade nut milk or full-fat coconut milk
1 TBS vanilla extract
2 TBS maple syrup
2-3 TBS goji berry powder (Sunfood Super Foods)
Pinch of sea salt
½ cup chia seeds
Combine all ingredients except for chia seeds in a bowl or blender and mix well. Stir in chia seeds and then pour into a glass container. Set in fridge. Stir occasionally to prevent clumping.
I adapted this recipe from Amanda Love, also known as the barefoot cook. I purchased her seasonal menu plans, and they are wonderful! Be sure to check out her offerings.
