Not only decadent, it is healthy enough to eat for breakfast. Yes, I know that the thought of making your own "milk" seems daunting, but if my daughter could do this at the age of 8, you can too!
Brazil nuts are an amazing source of selenium, an antioxidant and key co-factor in thyroid nutrition. The combination of the nuts and chia seeds gives you a dose of protein and fibre, which will help balance blood sugar and keep cortisol levels low.
½ cup Brazil nuts
2 cups water
nut bag or several layers of cheesecloth (optional)
½ cup chia seeds
¼ cup unsweetened cacao powder
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon maple syrup
Blend Brazil nuts in water in a high-speed blender until you get smooth, creamy milk. If desired, strain it with a nut bag or several layers of cheesecloth.
Add Brazil nut milk and other ingredients into a bowl and whisk until combined. Let sit several minutes (or overnight) until desired thickness is reached.
Serve & Enjoy!
NOTE: homemade nut milk will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
