Serves: 2


  • 2 Tbs. chia seeds
  • 1 and ¼ cups raw almond milk

Prepare almond milk by blending 1 cup soaked almonds with 2 cups water and 2 Medjool dates, and then strain the mixture through the nut milk bag.  Soak chia seeds in the milk for 6-8 hours.  The seeds will swell, and will be of the consistency of pudding.  Puree persimmons in a food processor or blender.  Add soaked chia seed mixture, and blend all together, or, alternatively, keep chia and persimmon mixtures separately, and arrange in a serving dish in layers (as pictured). Sprinkle with cinnamon before serving.
