A simply classic chia seed porridge recipe created at the hands of the uber talented Jason Wrobel. Once your fresh hemp milk is made all that's left to do is pour milk over the chia seeds, add the other ingredients and let soak until the chia seeds swell and the recipe forms that perfect porridge consistency.

The omega 3 fatty acid content and complete amino acid profile of chia, as well as their high fiber content, makes them incredibly nourishing and satisfying. This recipe also contains a generous serving of antioxidants with a handful each of goji berries, blueberries, and cacao nibs as well as superfood maca for hormone regulation. Breakfast doesn't get much better than this!

Something about the combination of cashews, coconut, goji berries and peppermint oil really does taste like candy cane! The red bits of goji berry with white coconut and cashew even gives the truffles an appearance that is reminiscent of this classic Holiday candy.

Truffles are so easy to make, look completely gourmet, and are fun because you can roll them in all sorts of toppings to vary both the appearance and flavor. And they're so cute!
A note from Chef Gena Hemshaw about her bold and energizing superfood smoothie: "The following recipe is every bit as tasty as it is vibrant, and it’s packed with nutrition. It’s also not overly sweet, which makes it a good afternoon snack: I personally find that super sweet smoothies make me crash in the afternoon. This was exactly the right amount of sweetness, and it fueled me well for the long day and night of study ahead."
Now make this recipe, enjoy slowly, and proceed to go save the world!
