Healthy Eating

Ingredients

2 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk (oat, hemp, or almond),

4 Tbsp chia seeds

2 Tbsp raw cacao powder

2 handfuls of fresh or frozen fruit

8 Medjool dates (pitted)

Recommended Stories For You

1 tsp cinnamon (optional)

Directions

Blend all ingredients until smooth texture. Chill for 2 hours. Serve chilled. You may choose to leave out the cacao if you want this to be caffeine free. This recipe is a great snack or dessert. Chia seeds contain a lot of nutrients and protein so a little goes a long way when it comes to meeting protein requirements. Makes four to six servings.
