I read an article recently titled “8 Things that Prove that You’re Basic.” One of them was using the hashtag #RoséAllDay.
Well, I guess that makes me pretty darn basic! But I think I’m okay with it 😉
This Rosé Chia Cup, on the other hand, is anything but basic!
I think it comes as no surprise that chia pudding has become a staple for me, and I’m sure for many of you fellow vegans, and non-vegans, too! It’s so great and easy to make. I just love how you can dress it up with whatever ingredients are your favorite.
I grabbed a to-go chia pudding cup at a shop in Union Station on a trip to Montreal recently. It was a coconut milk base, with almond butter and maple syrup! *drool*
Of course, you know I try to live a life that’s all about the health benefits.
Red beets are packed with rich antioxidants and nutrients like:
- Immune-boosting vitamin C
- Potassium which is great for nerve and muscle function
- Manganese which is great for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas
Definitely #begoodtoyourbody approved by me!
Something worth mentioning is that while this post is in fact sponsored by Flora, I am truly a big believer in what they stand for. They have a range of products I genuinely love and encourage you to check out (US/CA).
Ok, now for the recipe: this towering pudding cup!
- 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1 tbsp Salus Red Beet Crystals (US / CA)
- 4 tbsp maple syrup*
- Super teeny tiny pinch of salt**
- Combine all ingredients in a glass bowl and whisk together until there are no chia seeds left floating on top.
- Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or lid and leave in the fridge to firm up for at least two hours.
* You don’t need to add a sweetener, but I really do find it enhances the taste. ** Himalayan salt for bonus points 🙂
Red Beet Crystals are definitely a superfood I like to keep stocked in my pantry. They add pops of color and health benefits to so many meals!
