D. D. Scott's Favorite Vegetarian and/or Vegan Recipes: Raspberry Vanilla Chia, a Superfood Dessert

Happy Weekend, DDScottville Peeps!!!

How 'bout a super-healthy, super-easy and super-delicious superfood dessert?! That's what I've got for you today thanks to my wonderful friend Holly Hurlburt, who found this gem on www.youngandraw.com Thank you, Holly, and Thank you, Young and Raw!!!



Ingredients:

3-4 T chia seeds (white or black)
2-3 T shredded coconut
1/2 t vanilla bean powder or extract
1/4 c fresh raspberries
1/2 c coconut or almond milk
pinch of Himalayan or sea salt
2-3 T hemp seeds *optional add-on
1 t organic honey *optional add-on


Directions:

Combine all ingredients except for the raspberries and allow them to soften for 5-10 minutes. Add your fresh berries (I like to substitute or add blueberries) and enjoy. I put it in a Mason Jar, and sometimes, it's my "breakfast" dessert!!!

Young and Raw does add this note regarding the chia seeds: "Chia seeds can lower blood pressure, so be mindful if you have low blood pressure to enjoy chia seeds occasionally rather than every day in high amounts."

Happy Superfood Sipping!!! --- D. D. Scott
