Chia Blueberry Cups [Vegan]
- 1 cup almonds, preferably soaked and dehydrated
- 1 cup dates, pitted and soaked in water for half an hour
- 1 or 2 Tbsp. of soaking water
- 1 tsp. vanilla powder or ½ tsp. vanilla essence
- All the ingredients for the bodem go in a food processor with an S-blade on low speed until well combined and it becomes a kind of sticky ‘dough’. If too wet, add a little ground almonds.
- I prepared mine in small glasses, you can also use a bigger bowl. Divide the dough in 4 portions and make space for the filling with the back of a spoon.
- In the fridge to stiffen up.
- For the filling soak the goji berries and chia seeds in the water for 15 minutes.
- Save a couple of blueberries for decoration and add the rest of the berries with the softened chia’s and goji’s to a food processor with the S-blade and process untill well combined.
- Fill the cups with the lovely anti-oxidant rich, nutritious berry jam and decorate it with a few blueberries. PLace it in the fridge for half an hour.
- Share and Enjoy!
