RECIPE #7 CHOCOLATE CHIA DELIGHT
One of the main ingredients with this recipe is the dark chocolate, and you need to go easy on it, but it still is anti-inflammatory to a point. Milk chocolate will actually cause inflammation, so do not substitute for milk chocolate under any circumstances. Keep your potion size in check, and the dark chocolate in this recipe is going to help. The chia seeds keep you full until lunch, and the coconut milk is anti-inflammatory as well. For the most benefits, it’s usually best to use full-fat coconut milk.
- 14 Ounces Coconut Milk
- 1 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder
- 6 Tablespoons Chia Seeds
- 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
- 2-3 Ounces Dark Chocolate, Chopped Fine
Get a saucepan and put it over medium heat. Take the coconut oil, cocoa powder, and dark chocolate and combine them over the heat. The milk should be warmed up, and the chocolate should be melted. Once it is, turn the heat off, and stir in the vanilla extract as well as the chia seeds. Make sure to whisk thoroughly or the chia seeds could get stuck to the bottom. Pour it into individual cups for serving, and they need to be refrigerated for at least an hour. The cinnamon and cardamom should be sprinkled on top, and you can also top with coconut whipped cream or dark chocolate. Many people will top with blueberries for added anti-inflammatory properties.
