Chia Seed Puddings
1/2 c of chia seeds
3 to 3 1/2 c of nut milk (cashew is my favourite)
Seeds of a vanilla pod or a dash of natural vanilla extract
1-2 tsp maca powder (optional)
Mix nut milk, vanilla and maca in a bowl. Add chia seeds and continue to stir with a fork until well mixed through.
Keep giving them a stir every few minutes while you prepare your toppings.
Mixture should start to thicken in 15-20 minutes or leave overnight.
Your options are unlimited here really…
Chopped fruit – bananas, strawberries, tamarillo, passionfruit…
Blended berries (as I have done here with raspberries)
Once chia puddings are semi set,serve into bowls and top with your favourite fruits.For this once I simply blended 1 1/1 c of raspberries with the juice of an orange and poured on top.
These keep in the fridge for days so are great to make on Sunday night for a busy week ahead.
Sometimes I will also add a spoonful or two of a freeze dried berry powder (acai, goji, pomegranate, blueberry) into the nut milk if I am running a bit short of topping ideas.
