Chia + A Recipe For Sugar Free Creamy Chia Cup

by Teniel Moore {Raw Foods Contributor}
I love chia seeds. Do you?
Not only are these tiny seeds full or protein, omega 3 and loaded with vitamins minerals and antioxidants, they are also extremely versatile and a great staple in my cupboard always.
Here are a few of the things I do with my chia seeds:
~I add it to bread mixes
~I make raw chia crackers
~I use it as an egg replacement in my cooking
~I make chia cereal
~I add it to smoothies
~I grind them and add to raw goodie balls
But today I want to share with you my latest flavour combination and addiction.

Sugar Free Creamy Chia Cup

1 – 2 Tablespoons of chia seeds
9 or more Tablespoons of almond milk  (add more if needed as the seeds swell)
1 Tsp of raw maca powder
1 Tsp of unhulled tahini
1 Tsp of sprouted crunchy buckwheat (optional)
1 Tsp of cacao nibs
dash of cinnamon
few drops of stevia to taste
Get yourself a pretty cup or bowl and mix all these ingredients together. Keep stirring well so that all the chia seeds get mixed around and the tahini and stevia gets evenly distributed throughout.
Set in the fridge for at least 10 minutes. If it needs more liquid simply add more almond milk and stir again. This is a great recipe to make up the night before and can be a very sustainable breakfast on the go. 
Before serving you can add some more cacao nibs, buckwheat cinnamon & tahini purely to make it look pretty. Grab a spoon and enjoy.

My son loves his chia seeds with grated apple and raw honey or blueberries and mango. He sometimes takes it to kindergarten for his lunch. Any chia cereal combination makes a great portable snack.
I hope you enjoy making this fast simple and nutrient dense snack just as much as I do.
