how have you been?
i’m here for the June Recipe Redux! Yay!
i apologize i didn’t make the May Recipe Redux- it was too hectic a month and..well. you know the rest of it.
but i came back for June Recipe Redux! and the theme is “Sowing Seasonal Seeds”.
No matter the season, a scattering of seeds can jazz up the flavor, texture and nutrition profile of just about any dish. Whether it’s a chilled chia seed pudding or a hearty roasted vegetable salad with a sunflower seed crunch, show us how you sow your favorite seeds in a recipe reflecting the season in your part of the globe. Thanks to Sanaa @Fit & Fancy for this theme inspiration.
it is a little bit of story to make my recipe redux this month.
i decided i wanted to use Chia seeds. and as i was looking at recipes involving these beautiful seeds, i stumbled upon this recipe by Greatist- Tropical Chia Seeds Pudding.
it looks awesome..and delicious. so i went and made that- and took it to my cousin’s birthday party.
turned out- it’s not too much a crowd pleaser. it’s quite sour and not sweet enough (not even for me- who has a very low sugar standard!).
so then the chia project went on.
second recipe i made (successfully, too!) is Banana, Chia and Maple Syrup frozen dessert.
and i’m content 🙂 so here is the recipe. this recipe is basically a modified version of Ash’s frozen dessert, which you can access here.
Banana, Chia and Maple Syrup Frozen Dessert
3 small frozen bananas
1/2 cup plain greek yoghurt (i use Chobani plain greek yoghurt)
2 tbsps of maple syrup
2 tbsps of Chia seed (OK, i’m a bit crazy with Chia seeds here- you can reduce if you like :))
1. Throw everything in a blender or food processor.
2. Blitz for 3-5minutes or until smooth (you may add a dash of soymilk or any milk you like if it’s too thick)
3. Top it up with chocolate sprinkles if you wish! (i did!)
4. Enjoy it nowww 🙂
