Date and chia pudding

5 portions

16 dates
500ml coconut milk (or any plant milk)
8 tbsp chia seeds
4 tbsp cocoa
vanilla extract

In my attempt to balance the not-so-healthy foods in the life of an ovo-lacto-vegetarian, I sometimes crave a dessert to indulge in, knowing that I allow myself to do that. Don’t you? J
Well, it can be a vegan dessert.

This is how I got to one of the best vegan desserts I’ve ever tried.
And it’s with chia – I love chia!
How to make it?
Soak the dates – if you’re in a hurry and unable to leave them in a bowl overnight, use hot water and leave them in it for 20 minutes.
Soak the dates
Blend them with the plant milk (I think I love pistachio milk most), the chia seeds, the cocoa, and the vanilla extract (I have a small blender now, so I blended the ingredients in two batches).
Blend all the ingredients
What next? Allow the chia seeds to expand and then let the desserts sit a bit in the fridge.

Serve. Enjoy to the full!
You may even decorate with pieces of fruit if you feel like it.
