Whipped Chia Lingonberry Porridge

Kermaisen pehmeä chia-puolukkapuuro - se vähän parempi vispipuuro!

Summer is at its end, and I’ve noticed variations of whipped porridge coming up in different magazines and blogs. I love a lovely, fluffy whipped porridge which is typically made into semolina, but thanks to my gluten-free diet this traditional delicacy isn’t anymore on my list of appropriate foods.

But instead of feeling sorry for myself, I’ve been trying to think of something to replace it. This morning I did my first experiment around this idea, and as you might have guessed it from the fact that I’m even writing this post, the porridge came out super good. Fluffy, with a rich lingonberry flavour, and of course, a high nutrition content.

Whipped Chia Lingonberry Porridge

(for two)

1 dl chia seeds
2 dl coconut milk
2,5 dl lingonberries
1,5 dl water
1 (-2) bananas (add to taste)
2 rkl lucuma powder

Start by preparing a gel out of the chia seeds and water (let the chia seeds soak in the water until it has all been soaked into the seeds). Blend the gel together with the bananas. Add the cowberries and honey, and blend it all until the porridge is nice and fluffy.

There, now you are ready. Be sure to drown your porridge in almond milk, and enjoy! What a wonderful feeling it is to notice that almost all foods can have their equivalent in the gluten-free world!

’Keep it Cool’ Chocolate Pudding

Keep it Cool - suklaavanukas

The ’Keep it Cool’ chocolate pudding originates from the ’Laid back’ evening porridge that I couldn’t resist developing further. Rest and relax is something we all need once in a while, and in the midst of the busy months of spring it’s definitely worth thinking how one could support one’s own wellbeing with their diet. Relaxing toward the night is necessary for everyone, but in especially stressful life situations it’s good to give one’s nervous system some help in calming down and balancing itself even during the day, especially when one is feeling tense or overexcited.

And thus, I came up with the idea to use Terranova’s Oat and Cherry Super Blend even during day to calm my nerves and help find peace of mind. So, I’ve been using this product both in the evening to help me calm down before going to sleep and during stressful periods in life also during the day. This time I hid it inside this delicious chocolate pudding.

The ’Keep it Cool’ chocolate pudding is worth its name, helping to balance the nervous system with nutrients and vitamins essential for its wellbeing (e.g. vitamin B complexes). And, of course, this wouldn’t be a Wellberries recipe if this pudding would not be a treat for the taste buds as well: this chocolate pudding is both wonderfully chocolaty and comfortingly creamy.


’Keep it Cool’ Chocolate Pudding (for one)

1 banana
2 Tbsp chia seed
about 8 Tbsp coconut milk
1–2 Tbsp raw cacao powder
1 Tbsp lucuma powder
½ avocado
½ Tsp Terranova Oat & Cherry Super Blend powder
½ Tsp Ceylon cinnamon
a sprinkle of salt

1. Mash the banana into a mush in a bowl using a hand blender.

2. Add in the chia seeds and 6 Tbsp of coconut milk. Let the chia seeds soak in the mixture for about 10 minutes.

3. Add in the avocado, the raw cacao powder, lucuma, Oat & Cherry Super Blend, salt, and cinnamon. Mix it smooth with the hand blender, and decorate with coconut milk.


 

And there you have, yet again, that almost perfect package of nutrition and delight taken another step further.

Wishing you a delicious and peaceful spring time – keep it cool!
