This was an inspired creation using Irish moss blended with water, banana, pecans… nice little breakfast gadget. For those of you not familiar with Irish moss, it’s a see vegetable that can be used as a thickener. Flavor wise it doesn’t taste very good so you need to rinse it and then soak it for at least 2 hours prior to using it. I rinsed, soaked for 3 hours, then rinsed and stored 2 cups of Irish moss in the fridge for use through out the week. Even after all of that the Irish moss is not very appetizing. Irish moss works great as a thickener for pie fillings and for ice cream. The combo of Irish moss and blended chia make this porridge nice and fluffy. The recipe below serves 2.
1 C hot water
1/2 C pecans, almonds or pumpkin seeds – try a combo
1/4 C soaked Irish moss
1 TB chia seeds
1 TB maca
2 TB mesquite powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
Irish moss needs to be rinsed and soaked in advance. You can’t just throw Irish moss in the blender without prepping it first.
Blend water and Irish moss until smooth
Add remain ingredients and blend
Top with pecans, cacao nibs, raisins, bee pollen… whatever you like.
