Creamy Strawberry Dessert

20140323185038(1)

I’m sure you all know how incredible healthy chia seeds are: full of omega 3, minerals like calcium and manganese and lots of fab fibre. .
And if you like me have fussy eaters in the house, who don’t like the texture of the seeds as they expand (I know! how can you not love it! well a small child I know says it reminds him of eating fish-eyes) this is the perfect recipe.
It tastes just like a gorgeous bog-standard strawberry and cream pudding, the secret super-ingredient can not be detected :).
The trick is to bled the seeds to oblivion!
And don’t worry all the goodness is still intact.

It’s so hard not to eat these raw energy balls in one go!
But I do try to share since they are filled with goodness like chia seeds, sunflower seeds, tahini and plant protein.
They are a godsend when you are longing for something sweet and satisfying and you need it quickly!
No cooking or machinery is needed it literally takes 3 minutes and if you are desperate forget about the fridge part!

This raw nut-free chocolate and zucchini dessert is my to-go-to when I’m strapped for time and also eager to get the kids to eat more raw veg.
