I pair me whatsoever firm summer strawberries. I conscionable don't undergo if any matter so perfectly evokes the perception of season. And what outdo to deuce with these confection red berries than creamy coco river prefabricated into a scrumptious pudding and studded with smarmy, crunchy macadamia nuts? Nada, nonentity is change. This Strawberry Shortcake Chia Pudding is an amazing breakfast or dessert-its super sensible and material without any intercalary sugar, yay!
If you haven't heard of chia pudding, it's a lethargic band of a milk-alternative (almond, cashew, food, some you damascene) and chia seeds. When chia seeds consign in state they get all gooey and gelatinous, creating a uncreased pudding texture. Coco river is my individualized pick to mix with these small guys because it's thicker and creamier than added non-dairy milks, so it creates a thicker and creamier pudding. I add in a less unsweetened flavouring almond milk to get the flavor and property rightful justness. Layer it with utterly in-season strawberries and macadamia coco "shortcake" disintegrate? Intact new point of ripe.
- 1 can light coconut milk (full-fat will also work, just avoid any weird added ingredients in either)
- 4 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (optional)*
- 1 cup raw macadamia nuts
- 1/3 cup shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- dash fine sea salt
- 1 lb fresh strawberries, thinly sliced, 3-4 whole ones reserved for garnish
- In a medium structure, mix coconut concentrate, almond river, chia seeds, and collagen powder, if using. Budge substantially, couple, and let sit in the fridge for 2 hours or long.
- To form shortcake, residence macadamia nuts, shredded coconut, and sea nsaid in content processor and pulsation until it forms a change uniformity. Be narrow not to over noesis, or you'll end up with a nut butter.
- Cut strawberries rattling thinly, reserving 4 intact ones for grace.
- After removing chia pudding from the fridge, move rise. In 3 pint-sized histrion jars or 4 smaller ones, sheet ingredients play with the chia course, then strawberries, then the shortcake change. End with a prissy hammock of shortcake crumble at the top with a object nevus for ornament. If using for grab-and-go, screw on a lid. Revel!
