How Not to Die Dessert
I iterate that Dr. Greger says it's a good idea to not die, and again, I agree. In exchange for sharing this awesome idea, I received a 2018 calendar with Greger-approved, life-loving, cruelty-free vegan recipes.
From "The How Not to Die Cookbook Calendar," I present (my attempt at)...
Berry Chocolate Chia Pudding
1 1/4 C berries (such as raspberries)
3 T 100% pure cocoa / cacao powder
2 T almond butter
1 1/2 C almond milk
Fill a measuring cup with 1/2 C of Medjool dates, chopped to remove pits. Add water to fill to the 2 cup mark. Add 1 t lemon juice. Dump into a whir machine and whir. NOTE: This makes 2 C date syrup; the recipe calls for 1/2 C.
1/4 C chia seeds
optional garnish: berries / nuts / etc
Again, you can pretty much guess what to do with the ingredients. Make the date syrup, measure 1/2 C, and reserve the rest. Dump all ingredients, including the 1/2 C date syrup, and excluding the optional garnish, in a whir machine and whir. Scoop into a container and whisk in chia seeds. Refrigerate overnight. (Synopsizing to promote creativity and independent thought.)
Optionally garnish and serve cold.
