Chia seed (Argentine sage) is called superfood used in many diet models. They contain omega-3, calcium, and iron. They are a source of wholesome proteins, antioxidants, potassium, fiber, magnesium, phosphorus and many other beneficial substances. In addition to their health properties, they also have a unique ability to gel liquids, thanks to which they can be used in various recipes, such as the delicious coconut chia pudding. This time served with strawberry mousse, which lasts the season, so let’s use because strawberries have few coals and are perfect for low-carb and high-fat diets like LCHF, paleo or ketogenic. It is also a perfect breakfast or dessert for children instead of shop cheese and yogurt.
Ingredients for 4 servings:
-400 ml of coconut milk
-40 g chia seeds
-strawberries – the amount at the discretion and limitations for carbohydrates (for me 300 g for mousse and for decoration)
-blueberries for decoration
-optionally a sweetener, e.g. stevia (keto / LCHF, xylitol (LCHF) or sugar
Mix coconut milk with a sweetener or sugar if you use it. For us, the sweetness of coconut milk and fruit is sufficient, so I skip sweet additions.
Add chia seeds to the milk, mix and put in the fridge for a minimum of 3-4 hours or just overnight.
Mix the strawberries and fill them with the cups in which the dessert will be served.
Add a layer of pudding and put the washed and dried fruits on top. For me strawberries and blueberries.
