Lori and I have been slowly getting back into playing in the kitchen. We have so many recipes we want to share, just takes time to plan it out, take pictures, edit pictures, and write up the post. So we thank you all for still sticking around through all the craziness here from moving, remodeling, etc.
We did a lot of work around Lori’s new house yesterday that around 4 or so in the afternoon we had a craving for something cool and refreshing. It has been hot here, so baking did not seem appealing.
Chia pudding to the rescue!
You all know we love our chia seeds.
Purely Twins Cookies-n-Cream Chia Pudding
inspired by mini cookies-n-cream cakes
Prep-time – a few minutes to gather the ingredients then about 15 minutes or so as the chia pudding sets.
Cook time – zero
- 2 cups coconut kefir ( we used So Delicious Diary Free Plain Coconut Kefir) or you could make your own coconut kefir recipe.
- 3 tbsp protein powder of choice (we used Sunwarrior Brown Rice protein)
- 4 tbsp chia seeds
- 2-4 chocolate cookies (we used Twin Cakes Spiced Cocoa Coconut Chew)
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
Place coconut kefir, protein powder, chia seeds, and coconut oil into a blender and whip together. Then let set in fridge for about 10-15 minutes.
Once chia starts to thicken, stir in your cookie crumbs.
If desire more sweetness, add a few drops of stevia. Or whatever sweetener you desire.
Other great cookies you could use in this recipe are:
man, do we love our cookie-like desserts or what? haha
I probably could have found a few more recipes to throw in there but decide that was enough 😉
I just kept finding some old recipes that I forgot about. Lori and I need to find a better way to organize our recipes, and we apologize we never finished our recipe page. The best way to find our recipes is use the tabs in our sidebar on the right – one called baked recipes and the other one is called raw food recipes. Or use the search bottom to help you find what you are looking for.
Many of you have asked us will our recipes still be available when we start the new blog. And to answer that is yes!! Pure2raw will still be here, so you can still access our recipes. We do plan on transferring some of them over to our new blog too, just need to decided on which ones we want to carry over.
I have been working hard on designing our new site, it is almost finished! Lori keeps nagging me to finish it so we can start blogging daily over there. My goal is sometime this week to finish it!
Twins Questions: Do you like cookies-n-cream? Have your ever tried coconut kefir before? If so, did you like it? Do you like kefir or yogurt better?
Lori likes ‘cookie dough’ better then cookies-n-cream, I would have to agree. But we can never turn down anything chocolate based! And we enjoy both kefir and yogurt equally.
till next time,
