This must be one of the easiest desserts I’ve ever made – and it’s delicious. The only thing you have to remember is to soak the chia and dates at least an hour before you make the dish (don’t soak them together!)
The chia gives it ‘body’ and the frozen blueberries make it like a soft ice cream – cold and refreshing. Add the other berries fresh, once you’ve blended, to add even more great anti oxidant support.
This is one of those quick and delicious recipes which looks impressive with not a lot of work. It’s a short-cut of a recent new recipe I tried that had kale pesto glueing it all together. In my opinion it was too gluggy, and not worth all the pesto work. Instead I’ve relied on spicing up the lentils – you could add chopped coriander or basil for more taste if you like. It’s one of those dishes that can become Thai or Indian or Italian, depending on the spices and herbs you like to use.
Everyone knows that you should be drinking a minimum of about 8 glasses of clean water daily – especially on sunny days, or if you’re doing exercise – but you can also hydrate your body with a variety of high water-content foods.
