*chia seed pudding

With its tapioca-like consistency, this recipe makes for a great tasting and deliciously filling raw food dessert or healthy breakfast. It is an amazing source of omega-3’s and beneficial energy nutrients.  Feel free to add more or less sweetener, vanilla, or other ingredients like hemp seeds, walnuts, fruit etc.

Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

2 cups sweetened cashew nut milk:

    1/2c raw cashews

2c water

    2T coconut sugar or raw agave

    1t vanilla

    1T coconut oil

    Pinch pink salt

1/3c chia seeds

Pinch cinnamon *opt

DIRECTIONS

Make the sweet nut milk. In a medium sized bowl, add the seeds and pour the milk in, stirring every 30 seconds or so for about 5-6 minutes; the chia will begin to plump and swell. When all is well combined, let stand for 20-30 minutes stirring the mixture every 5 minutes or so until it thickens into a nice tapioca pudding consistency. I prefer eating this after at least an hour or even over night but is delicious and a bit crunchy earlier on. Serve on its own or with fresh fruit.
