I’m still down in Mexico and making my own food because this is not the most vegan-friendly place in the world, but that’s okay because I am educating and inspiring my new Mexican family about why I eat the way I do and show them the interesting and delicious creations I make for myself daily that are packed full of nutrition and all sorts of wholesome goodness. I took two pics of this, one with a big pecan in the middle but this pic was my favourite. Two days ago was my father’s wedding, and my step-mother threw the bouquet (which I didn’t even try to catch) but I did salvage theΒ rest of the flowers from the table centrepiece fixtures toΒ make a fancy little floral alter for my dish. TotallyΒ unnecessary for you to do, but I thought it added to the beauty and gave those those flowers a little more purpose than just becoming a bouquet for a day.

Ingredients: Amount Measure Notes
Chia seeds, dried 1 cup
Coconut milk, reduced fat 4 cup
Maple syrup 1.5 tbsp or 3 packs stevia
Granola 1/4 cup toasted (maple)
Peanuts 2 tbsp whole or chopped
Cocoa powder, unsweetened 1 cup
Coconut oil 2 tsp
Cinnamon 1/2 tsp
Almond milk, unsweetened 3 tbsp
Stevia 2 tsp

Directions:

1. Mix chia seeds, coconut milk, and maple syrup together together in a small bowl. Glass bowls or mason jars work really nice as you can see the layering effect. Cover and let it set in refrigerator for 20 min. or overnight to let the chia absorb the liquid.
2. Remove from the refrigerator and make sure your pudding looks thick and the chia seeds have gelled.
3. For chocolate icing, mix cocoa powder, coconut oil, almond milk, stevia (or maple syrup) and cinnamon. Add liquid ingredients in slowly and stir constantly until you reach desired thickness. I prefer it like an icing. Feel free to add a few more drops of almond milk in if you need it to be more liquid.
4. Top with granola and peanuts. This recipe calls for granola and peanuts but feel free to top with coconut, strawberries, seeds or whatever your favourite toppings are.
5. Enjoy.
