I got to LA, discovered my body worked better on a diet that’s gluten free, sugar free and dairy free, but I like desserts, so someone’s bubbie taught me this one!


6 cups of coconut milk

1 cup of organic chia seeds

2 tsp vanilla flavoring

1 tsp xylitol

3 splashes of stevia


Mix it all up. Stir thoroughly. Leave in fridge for 1 hour. Eat & enjoy!
