VSG: For the Soul (Desserts)

Peaches and Cream Chia

 

Peaches and Cream Chia

SERVES: 6 PREP TIME: 1h 30 MIN Gluten Free | Soy Free | Raw (option)

Ingredients:

• 1 can full fat coconut milk, refrigerated overnight
• 3 - 3 1/2 cups of your favorite vegan milk (almond, hemp, soy, etc)
• 3/4 cups whole chia seeds
• 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
Maple syrup or your favorite sweetener to taste
• 2 peaches, sliced or chopped
• 1 tablespoon vegan powdered sugar, or sweetener to taste

Raw Variation: Make sure to get your seed, nut, and coconut milks in raw form. You can also make these yourself with the raw nuts, seeds, and fresh mature coconut flesh! Just blend them with water and strain through cheesecloth. Adjust the amount of water until the desired level of creaminess is achieved!

Directions:

1. Pre-refrigerate the can of coconut milk overnight, making sure not to shake it so the cream can settle on top. When ready, skim the thick cream from top of the can with a fork, put into a large mixing bowl, and set aside.

2. Add your favorite vegan milk (3 - 3 ½ cups) to the remainder of the coconut milk until they equal 4 cups total.

3. Using a large jar, or sealed container, combine chia seeds, the 4 cup vegan milk mixture, 2 tsp of vanilla extract, and, your choice of vegan sweetener to taste. Shake vigorously to mix, and leave in refrigerator for 1-2 hrs.

4. As the chia seeds are refrigerating, prepare the coconut whipped cream. Put the metal whisks from electric hand mixer into the bowl with the coconut cream, cover, and put the coconut cream with the whisks in the refrigerator for 20 min to cool.

5. Then remove from refrigerator, add the vegan powdered sugar or sweetener of your choice, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and beat with hand mixer until fluffy. If the cream becomes too thin, put back into refrigerator for 20 min with whisks, and beat again. Leave it in the refrigerator to store, and whip before serving.

6. When the chia pudding is done, ladle into a dessert cup, top with a side of peaches and a dollop of whipped cream. And most importantly... enjoy!
