Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

*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.

Raw Chocolate Avocado Pudding

*raw chocolate avocado pudding

Talk about instant gratification, this dessert is not only filled with healthy fats and beautifying agents, it TASTES AMAZING. Let it set up in the fridge if you can wait and serve with fresh berries and/or a whipped coconut cream topping. It really is outstanding and takes less then 5 minutes to prepare, 35 if you are willing to wait out the chill factor. This was my first run through so I can totally see how easy it would be to change up the flavors by using different milks, extracts, even by adding texture with nuts or seeds. #FRICKENDELCIOUS
