Because I wasn't allowed to eat much sugar as a kid, a lot of our mid-week "desserts" were healthy cereals with fruit. I do like the idea of trying to stay away from sugar - at least during the week - so I carried on the tradition with this dessert that I make when my husband and I are trying to be "good" but still want a treat. He now says he prefers this to any real sugar dessert. I use raw cream (in addition to homemade coconut milk), which is pretty decadent (but I also believe has many healthy properties), but you can use any kind of milk/mylk of your choice. Whatever suits your diet will taste great - I've made it with only almond mylk and it's still really yummy. I keep the 5 ingredients in my house fairly regularly, so I can whip this up in a moment of dessert desperation. Hope this helps to kick off your week. Happy Monday Y'all!
1/3 cup Nature's Path Organic Qi'a Cereal (It only has 3 ingredients: Organic Chia Seeds, Organic Buckwheat Groats & Organic Hemp Seeds)
2 Organic Dates
1/2 Cup Organic Blueberries
2 Tablespoons Organic, Unsweetened Organic Coconut Shreds
1/2 or More Any Milk or Cream of Your Choice
Here's how I like to put it together:
Place Qi'a Cereal at the bottom of the bowl. This cereal is very dense - a little goes a long way.
Slice two dates into pieces and add.
Add the blueberries.
Sprinkle on the Shredded Coconut.
Fill the bowl with about 1/2-3/4 cup milk/cream, until it completely covers the cereal. Wait a few seconds for the cereal to soak in some of the liquid and stir. If there are any dry parts to the cereal add more liquid until all of the cereal is covered. Dig in!
