Strawberry Açai Chia Mousse

This is a make-ahead project. If you start working on it on Friday you will have a nice dessert for your Sunday brunch.

Indulge without guilt. All the ingredients in this dessert come with incredible health benefits.  Antioxidant power of açai  combines beautifully with vitamin C from strawberries and the protein and Omega-3 fatty acids from the chia seeds. Coconut milk and honey give this wholesome dessert a nice creamy texture. Unless you are allergic to any of them you should add them to your diet as often as you can.
 

Ingredients:
  • 3 cups organic strawberries, chopped
  • 1 cup Thai style coconut milk
  • 2/3 cup coconut water
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp raw honey
  • 2 Tbsp açai powder
  • 1/3 tsp pink Himalaya salt
  • 4-5 strawberries, sliced (for garnish)


Method:
  • Put chia seeds in a cup. Pour coconut water over the seeds, stir well and cover the cup and put it into a fridge. Allow the seeds to expand and jellify for a few hours.
  • Using a blender blend strawberries, coconut milk, honey, açai and salt until smooth.
  • Add the jellified chia seeds and mix everything together. 
  • Transfer the pudding to individual dessert bowls, glasses, or goblets. Cover with a plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least few hours. I love to keep it in the fridge overnight.
  • Before serving, garnish the pudding with sliced strawberries and enjoy in good company!


Tip: You can use any berries that are in season. If you do not have fresh berries, use frozen ones. Mix strawberries with blueberries or raspberries with blackberries and add your favorite superfood to the recipe. Experiment. It is such a fun!
