Chia seeds—the same magical things that turn sculpture pets into overgrown, sprouted topiaries (ch-ch-ch-chia!)—have found themselves in the health limelight in recent years. Packed with fiber, omegas, potassium, and magnesium, the superfood seeds are great for boosting energy, improving endurance, and even helping regulate digestion.
And while it’s simple to toss them in smoothies or on top of salads, we prefer adding them to recipes that taste like dessert (but are secretly super healthy). And don’t worry, they won’t make you sprout plants from unexpected places.
Creamsicle? More like dreamsicle. Sticking to five simple ingredients (and optional toppings), this is a recipe you can pull together in a snap—plus, you likely have all the materials on hand. Simply mix ’em together, pop in the fridge, and top with as many crunchy additions as desired. (We love toasted coconut flakes, pecans, and dried cherries.)
