I lasted 10 days without sugar in the month of January. That meant no bread, no pasta, no rice and nothing with added sugar (I was eating fruit twice or sometimes three times a day). It was hard. I was really cranky. But it helped me kick my nightly “vanilla ice cream for dessert” habit and now I barely crave the stuff (ha).
But while I was doing this no sugar challenge, I somehow found a way of making “dessert” anyway.
I can’t believe I’m even posting this coconut date chia seed pudding recipe (such a mouthful). In essence, it goes against most of my cooking beliefs. Number one: it’s gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, raw, vegan and paleo. Number two: I don’t post five ingredient recipes. It’s just not my style (yes, I like to make croquembouches). Number three: if it isn’t heated on the stove or baked in the oven, are we even cooking?!
