    “Serves: 1 | Serving Size: 1/2 jar”

    Is this recipe one serving or two?

  2. Kathy says:

    I was thinking the same thing? Kind of confusing!

  3. Everett says:

    I agree with the previous comments–the serving size is confusing. I made it for my wife and we wonder if the recipe might be for two servings perhaps?

  4. Alma says:

    Does it matter which coconut milk is used — canned or carton (refrigerated)? Also, seems like a lot of calories for 1/2 serving…

  5. Julie Arnold says:

    Hello, can the peanut powder be substituted with Peanut Butter? If so, what is the recommended amount?

    This definitely needs some clarification..
    3 tablespoon of chia seeds (3x15g) 192kcal
    1 teaspoon of maple syrup 12kcal
    1 teaspoon of vanilla extract 12kcal
    3 tablespoon of peanut powder (3x12g) 153kcal
    1/2 cup (75g) frozen raspberries 36kcal
    Total calories so far: 405
    Plus either:
    1 cup (240ml) unsweetened coconut ‘drink’ (carton) 48kcal
    1 cup (240ml) light coconut milk (tinned) 175kcal
    Giving a total of either 453kcal (1/2=226.5kcal) or 580kcal (1/2=290kcal)
    It just doesn’t add up whether all the ingredients is the serving size or half is the serving size… I’m confused..!

    According to the article, “It’s packed with 23 grams of fiber and 17 grams of protein PER SERVING..” But that’s misleading because the nutritional information for 1 serving, which is HALF a jar says:
    Nutrition (per serving): Dietary Fiber: 12g; Protein: 9g

  9. Thank you for sharing this healthy recipe.
