Steps

1
Done

Add blanched almonds, fresh lime zest and cinnamon sticks in a large bowl. Cover with 6 cups of warm water. Let stand for at least eight hours but its best if you were to let it sit overnight.

2
Done

Remove the cinnamon sticks and lime zest

3
Done

Add the premier protein in with the water and almonds and blend in a large blender until smooth. You may also use a hand blender. (I have added links to the description on this page so you can check out some options. )

4
Done

Add the blended mixture into a saucepan and heat mixture up until it begins to sizzle. After you hear the sizzle add the cinnamon and monk fruit sugar.

5
Done

Add the eggs into a separate bowl and whisk until well blended. Pour the egg slowly into saucepan with the rest of the mixture. KEEP STIRRING because if you stop you will create clumps. You may want to have a friend help you pour while you mix or vice versa. After you put all the egg mixture into the saucepan continue to mix for 1-2 minutes until well blended and combined.

6
Done

Remove from heat and add the chia seeds and let sit until chia seeds have fully expanded and thickened (about 1-3 hours). It's best served chilled so you can let the chia seeds expand in the refrigerator while it thickens. If the chia texture is a bit too grainy for you, add the mixture in the blender and blend until smooth. Serve with a cinnamon stick or just enjoy as is.
