Recipe type: Dessert, Breakfast
Cuisine: Vegan, Gluten Free
1 1/2 cups Almond Breeze Almondmilk Original Unsweetened
1/3 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder
2-5 Tbsp maple syrup if not blending (can sub 5-9 dates, pitted if blending)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
1/4 tsp sea salt
OPTIONAL: 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Add all ingredients except sweetener to a mixing bowl and whisk vigorously to combine. If not blending (which I preferred!), sweeten to taste with maple syrup at this time. If blending, you can sweeten later with maple syrup or dates.
Let rest covered in the fridge overnight or at least 3-5 hours (or until it’s achieved a pudding-like consistency).
If blending, add to a blender and blend until completely smooth and creamy, scraping down sides as needed. Sweeten to taste.
Leftovers keep covered in the fridge for 2-3 days, though best when fresh.
Serve chilled with desired toppings, such as fruit, granola or coconut whipped cream.
