Powerful Overnight Breakfast
Recipe and photo from www.activevegetarian.com
This will take about 10 min of preparation the night before however the next morning you will have a super healthy and delicious breakfast waiting for you.
This is what you will need:
◦1/4 cup chia seeds
◦1/4 cup dried coconut
◦1/4 cup raw cashews soaked for 2 hours and drained
◦1 cup almond milk (or water for a less calorie version)
◦1 Tbs cacao powder
◦8 dates pitted dates
◦1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
◦1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
◦pinch of salt
Place all ingredients (except the coconut and chia seeds) in a high speed blender and process until smooth. Mix the chia seeds with coconut in a larger bowl. Pour mixture into a well combined bowl of chia seeds and coconut and mix well.
The chia seeds will take on a gelatinous texture/appearance as the seed can soak up to 10 times it’s weight in water.
Divide the mixture into 2 glasses or bowls and transfer into the fridge.
