2 cups raw cashews
1 tbsp ground chia seeds

  1. Add milkshake and cashews to a high-power blender (e.g. Vitamix) and slowly blend, using the plunger to help mix batter. (Note: You may need to add water to thin, depending on consistency, but the batter should be thick.)
  2. Blend in ground chia, incorporating well. Spoon out into serving glasses and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

Dietary Dish

  • Hemp milk is a great nut-free dairy alternative for those with nut allergies. Plus, it's rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce inflammation and is essential for heart and cognitive health, and cell- and muscle-building protein.
  • Cacao nibs are an amazing superfood and one of the highest plant-based sources of magnesium, which helps to calm muscles and nerves and can also alleviate headaches and muscle cramps.
  • Mesquite pod is a superfood. It's rich in anti-cancer and anti-aging antioxidants and has a maple-like taste.
  • Chia seeds are super high in fibre and one of the highest plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acids.

*If you don't have mesquite and find you need a little added sweetness, replace with coconut sugar to taste.
