1.5 cups milk of choice (I used homemade coconut milk)
1/2 cup fresh strawberries, plus a few more to top
4 Medjool dates, pitted and soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes (can substitute 2 tbsp of honey, agave, rice malt syrup, whatever)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
Generous pinch of sea salt
1/4 cup chia seeds
Blend together all ingredients except chia seeds until very smooth, then mix with chia seeds in a jar or bowl.
Cover, and put in fridge 4 hours or overnight, stirring after 1 hour to prevent clumps.
To serve, top with strawberries, cacao nibs and even a drizzle of chocolate syrup (my favorite healthy recipe is here if you’re feeling decadent! Serves 1, although you can double or triple the recipe and eat it throughout the week.
