Although I am not a vegan, I do choose to eat more vegetarian & vegan meals throughout my week than most non-vegans. This could possibly be due to raising my child vegetarian and living amongst vegetarian and vegans throughout my early twenties. Either way, I love experimenting in the kitchen, so when I was introduced to this recipe via “Goldilock’s” on instagram, I immediately went to the cupboard and whipped up a batch for the morning. All of the ingredients are items I tend to always have stocked in my cupboards, so it really wasn’t of any inconvenience for me. I chose to put fresh fruit into my “vegan yogurt” as it just seemed to be bland without it, plus then I would get my allotted nutritional amount of fruit serving for breakfast. Given that I am of Jamaican descent and I grew up on one of the Hawaiian Islands I tend to go tropical with my fruit selection, yet you can put whatever your heart fancies. I will post the ingredients and recipe below.
1/2 c. Coconut milk
1/4 c. Black Chia seeds
1/4 c. Almond milk
Add Coconut milk to air tight container (I used a 8oz. Mason jar), mix in chia seeds, add almond milk, stir, seal and refrigerator over night. In the morning, cut fruit into bite-size pieces, add into the “vegan yogurt” and enjoy! Let me know what your tastebuds think of the recipe. Sometimes if I’m feeling more on the sweeter side, I also add agave nectar to it. What is your favorite “easy and simple” recipe?
