If you’ve never had chia pudding before, you’re in for a true double-y blue treat. We’ll soak chia seeds in creamy full-fat coconut milk and stir in blue spirulina powder, which is neutral in flavor and a nutrition powerhouse full of antioxidants, minerals and chlorophyll. We’ll add lemon, vanilla and just a touch of maple syrup for the perfect amount of sweet, then top it with an organic blueberry compote and a sprinkle of hemp seeds. Enjoy it as a snack, a dessert or even for breakfast alongside your morning eggs. It’s best eaten chilled right out of the fridge.
Strawberry season is here and we’re stocking up on these local red berry beauties from Happy Dirt to bring you this GC favorite. This layered dessert has an almond and Medjool date crust, a strawberry cashew cream and a layer of fresh strawberry ‘jam’ that will boost the liveliness of this pot of glory to no end. There’s a family story about Lizzie’s cousin, Luisa, who outright refused to eat strawberries, until around 12 years old when she finally decided to take the risk. There was a moment of silence and then tears rolled down her cheeks as she grieved all the years she had lived not eating them. So, don’t miss out this week on this spectacular treat! Enjoy right out of the fridge.
