Ch-Ch-Ch-CHIA Pudding

Recipe re-blogged from Paula Salzman

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ cups almond milk (add a bit of coconut cream for fat to balance the cocoa)
  • 3 pitted dates or sweetener of choice, to taste (SuperMax’s family uses ZSweet)
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2-2 ½ Tablespoons raw cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder (if making chocolate pudding), depending on how chocolaty you like it
  • ¼ cup chia seeds

Directions:

  1. Place almond milk, dates, vanilla and cacao in blender and process until dates are pulverized.  A Vitamix does a great job with this.  If your blender leaves the dates too chunky, you can strain the mixture before adding it to the chia seeds.
  2. Pour chia seeds into a medium container and add almond milk mixture.  Stir immediately to combine otherwise you may end up with blobs of chia seeds.  Allow to sit on countertop and stir every 5 minutes.  After 15 minutes, it should have thickened.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.  I usually do this the night before.  Stays in the fridge for as long as your almond milk would.  Fun to add toppings like fresh fruit, coconut or chopped nuts.
