I love making things that are super healthy and taste like decadent Milkshakes!!! Here is my latest concoction. By using my homemade Almond Milk made with plain coconut water, I have eliminated the need for any added sweetener. Another bonus is the nutrition, and we know this milk is loaded with calcium and the coconut water helps balance electrolytes. According to research, the chia seed is a better quality protein than soy, so enjoy this yummy treat feeling good about your choices. A friend, Marion, posted a chia chocolate recipe for Valentines Day, and in it she blended the fruit with a milk for the liquid base. Why didn’t I think of that??? Thanks Marion! This opens up a whole new range of recipes made with chia. Watch the Wholife magazine in March as it will contain my Chia article.
