Tropical Mila (Chia) Crumble Vegan Dessert

I haven’t done a dessert in a while and this one is right up my alley (and if you follow my blog I know you will love it too). It utilizes all the fresh tropical fruits that are in the grocery right now and some shredded coconut with that signature sweet-nutty taste and bit of texture. On top is a toasted crumble that is the perfect balance of sweet, crunchy and salty.

Healthy Dessert

This versatile dessert is not too sweet so it’s perfect for breakfast and snack as well! The two scoops of Mila give it lots of fiber and Omega 3s the oat groats have a great crunch. I do believe this is my new summer favorite for both dessert and breakfast.

As for my new favorite food, Mila takes the cake. It’s a premium blend of Salvia Hispanica, or chia seed, that has been cold pressed and sliced.  From what I’ve learned there are two kinds of people – those of us that are selective about what we put in our bodies and those that want a bargain.  And you know, it’s all good.  Everyone has to do the right thing for their own body.  As for me, I am the first person in line at a thrift shop but when it comes to food, you guys know I don’t compromise.

Super-Fast Dessert!

I will say that I had been eating organic chia AND ground flax every day but never noticed any difference – I just ate it because I knew it was good for me. When I got a sample of Mila, I was given no info other than the basics – that it’s a whole, raw, super-food.  I ate it for three weeks and noticed better energy and digestion and contacted my friend Megan (who also happens to be my mom’s nurse practitioner at her neurologist and a PhD) to get more.

Of course, I had to ask all about where it is grown, the conditions, and farming practices.  Each crop is cleaned and tested for the highest fiber content and Omega3s and then it is cold pressed and opened by slicing it to make it more bio available.  Mila has 3000 mg Omega3s per scoop! You can eat regular chia whole – but slicing it open preserves the oils and helps your body absorb the nutrients.
