With all the sweets, baking and delicious food around Christmas time, it’s difficult to try and eat healthy. I’ve never really been a super-healthy-food-junkie (I’m basically just obsessed with food in general, haha). And of course “healthy” is such a weird word with loads of definitions. It doesn’t always mean sugar free or low calorie or non-fat. (But I can promise you it quite often mean no meat/dairy/etc!) For me, I mostly try to eat healthy to feel good and because it’s fun.
Anyway, I’m rambling and I know from experience that a lot of text before the actual recipe is so frustrating, so here we go:
What you’ll need:
– 200 ml dairy free milk (of course use what you want, for example oatmilk)
– about 50 ml chia seeds
– 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
– 1-2 teaspoons of sweetener (optional, I used just a little maple syrup)
– season to taste with cardamom, cinnamon and a dash of salt
– preferably fresh ginger
– a citrus fruit, I like clementines or oranges for this recipe
– other fresh fruits or (frozen/fresh)berries
What you’ll do:
Stir together the milk, chia seeds, sweetener and cocoa powder in a bowl or jar. Add in the spices and grate in some fresh ginger and the zest from the citrus fruit. If you want, you can also squeeze in some of the juice for extra flavour. Let chill in the fridge over night or at least a few hours. Serve with some more fruit and berries! I like to finish it off with a sprinkle of cinnamon. And now, eat it and enjoy the amazing flavours of Christmas and chocolate!
