St. Patrick’s Day Dessert

What better way to celebrate than eating a delicious AND healthy dessert? Holidays don’t always have to mean junky food overload!

Check out the original recipe from the very awesome Vegan Yack Attack! I had to make some slight modifications for the ingredients I had on hand, but it still turned out delicious. ^^

Ingredients:
Mint Pudding
– 1/2 cup coconut milk
– 1/4 cup spinach
– 1/4 cup mint
– 1.5 TBS coconut sugar
– salt to taste
– 3 TBS chia seeds
Chocolate Pudding
– 2/3 cup coconut milk
– 2 TBS cacao powder
– 1.5 TBS coconut sugar
– salt to taste
– 3 TBS chia seeds
Extra
– vegan chocolate chips
– coconut flakes

Instructions:
For both puddings (separately of course) –
1. Mix all ingredients, except for the chia seeds, in a blender & puree.
2. Place chia seeds in a bowl, then pour the mixture in and whisk until they’re all combined. Refrigerate for 45-60 minutes, stirring occasionally so the chia seeds don’t congeal together.
3. Time to combine! When both puddings are the proper consistency, take them out of the refrigerator and get ready to layer. Whip out your desired container(s) and start layering each pudding one on top of the other. If you’re feeling extra fancy (like I was), sprinkle layers of coconut flakes in between. Top with some chocolate chips and you’re done!
