This is a great breakfast for those cold winter mornings.
The recipe largely comes from Wallflower Girl. Thanks to her for a great idea, which I adapted slightly to suit the ingredients I had. I found I did not need to add any sugar, as the apple and spices gave this dish plenty of flavour.
Also, I did not have any almond butter, so I just used ground almonds instead – it worked a treat!
- 120ml (1/2 cup) almond milk
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tbsp ground almonds
- 3 dates, roughly chopped
- 1/2 tsp mixed spice
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 apple, cored*
- Chopped pecans
- Mix all the ingredients, except the chopped pecans, in a blender until thick and smooth.
- Transfer to a saucepan, stir and heat gently until warm. (The original recipe is from a raw food blog and recommends not heating above 40 degrees C. I just heat until it’s a pleasant temperature to eat – no need to boil)
- Serve with chopped pecan nuts. Enjoy!
*I’ve also tried it with pear instead of apple -that’s just as good.
