This recipe is based on one by the Minimalist Baker. When I first made my version of it, I couldn't stop eating it..3 servings very quickly became 1. It's so good and full of nutrients that you will never know it's loaded with so many health benefits, omega 3 fatty acids, dietary fiber, antioxidants and immune building properties of functional mushrooms to name a few. It's probably meant as a dessert but I ate it for breakfast and didn't experience any sugar crashes of any kind. I topped it with local fresh blueberries and my grain free granola. I sweetened it with low glycemic date syrup, however this could easily be sweetened with whatever liquid sweetener you prefer, even liquid KETO sweetener. Be sure to use the best quality cacao you can afford in this as it really makes a difference. I chose to use a combination of canned coconut milk and macadamia nut milk to create a extra creamy texture.Everyone in your family will love this luscious healthy dessert/breakfast. I have found the best results are to make this in the evening to allow the chia seeds expand and flavours meld overnight, so the preparation time for this does not include the minimum of 8 hours of time in the refrigerator. Active preparation time is only about 5 minutes. If you plan to enjoy this as a dessert you could prepare it first thing in the morning.
