Long before I started making Skinny B and Holy Crap cereals, the Aztecs (and the Mayans) were cultivating and eating chia seeds, which were ground into flour, pressed for their oil or mixed with water. The seeds were prized as medicine because they gave messengers enough strength to run all day. This is my ode to them. Creamy and tropical, it’s a powerhouse of micronutrients, fibre and complex sugars, and it’s also high in heart-healthy fats.
- ¼ cup (60 mL) water
- 2 Tbsp (30 mL/28 g) Skinny B cereal
- ½ cup (120 mL) cultured coconut milk (or cultured almond milk)
- ½ cup (120 mL) unsweetened almond milk (or other nondairy milk)
- ½ avocado
- ½ medium banana
- Celery leaves or other vegetable leaves, for garnish
- Pour the water into a bowl, stir in the Skinny B cereal and let sit for 5 minutes.
- Place all the ingredients, except the garnish, in a blender and process until smooth. Pour into glasses, garnish as desired and serve. Ta-da! You’re done and on your way.
