This creamy chocolatey dessert is almost too good to believe. Raw, dairy and gluten free it also has no refined sugar.
For a smooth texture you really need a high powered blender like a Vitamix. My blender is not quite up to the job so I used ground chia seeds.
Ground chia seeds should be stored in the fridge or freezer to preserve their nutrients.
⅓ cup chia seeds
1 cup almond milk*
5–6 medjool dates**
3 tbsp raw cocoa
Place all the ingredients in a blender and chill for 30 minutes. Blend the chilled mixture until smooth and serve immediately or pour into glasses and chill until ready to serve.
*Coconut, soy or oat milk will also work. So too will regular milk although it is then not dairy free.
** A couple of ripe bananas can also be used instead of the dates.
