Preparation

Step 1

Start the recipe by gelling the chia seeds. It's easy! Simply combine the chia seeds and the water in a tall container. Stir well and allow to sit for at least 10 minutes. As the mixture sits, it will transform into a gel-like substance. The remaining gelled chia seeds can be stored in the fridge in an air tight container for up to two weeks.

Step 2

After you've set the chia seeds to gel, start on the rest of the recipe.

Step 3

Heat the butter or coconut oil over medium high heat. Add the apples, the first tablespoon of agave nectar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and kosher salt.

Step 4

Cook for 5 minutes until apples are softened just a bit. Remove the apples from the skillet and cool to room temperature. This may take up to 20 minutes or so.

Step 5

Once apples are cool, add the apple mixture, yogurt, chia seeds and the other tablespoon of agave nectar to a blender and blend until smooth.

Step 6

Serve right away or store in the refrigerator (up to overnight).
