Chia seeds are full of Omega-3 fatty acid, a great source of antioxidants, iron, protein and fibre. Spirulina has great anti-inflammatory properties, which makes this dessert health and tasty.
I enjoy making foods that look good and this dessert is beautiful. My family loves this dessert and I’ve found this a big hit in the warmer weather. A nice refreshing, cold dessert.
Step by step guide
- In a large bowl mix the Blue Spirulina powder, Chia seeds, maple syrup, vanilla, orange juice and milk.
- Once stirred thoroughly, leave it to sit for around 5 minutes.
- Stir again to ensure there are no lumps.
- Cover and place in the fridge, ideally you want to leave the mixture for at least 2 hours. However overnight does work best.
- Remove from the fridge, dish up and top with Vegan yoghurt.
- Place blueberries and blackberries on top.
- If the mixture is too thin you can mix in some more chia seeds and pop it back in the fridge for an additional 30 minutes.
- I like to top it with blueberries and blackberries however you can use a variety of different foods like nuts, cornflakes, coconut shavings, raspberries, or strawberries.
- I use almond milk however soymilk works well too.
- You can use any flavour vegan yoghurt or make your own, I like coconut yoghurt or vanilla yoghurt.
- I use smooth orange juice.
