I have tried several chia pudding recipes over the last few years and believe me when I say it….this one takes the top prize. You know it’s good when the kids are actually fighting over the last little bit in the bowl. Up until this recipe, I had been struggling to get our kids to eat chia pudding. I absolutely love it and even love the texture, but the girls were always less than thrilled when it was in the morning line up of breakfast options.
Not only is it super delicious, its easy to make! My kinda recipe. Enjoy!
- 8 pitted Dates
- 2 cups of water
- 2 cups of non-salted raw cashews
- 1/2 cup of ice
- 1 cup of chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla
- 2 oz of agave
Blend the water, cashews, ice, dates, vanilla and agave. Then pour into a large mixing bowl. Add 1 cup of water and then slowly add in chia seeds. Make sure to stir chia seeds as pour them in. Let it set for 5 minutes and stir again. Store in a glass container overnight.
We usually top the chia pudding when served with whatever fresh berries we have in the fridge (blueberries, strawberries or raspberries are our typical goto’s). We also like to sprinkle coconut flakes, cacao nibs, or pumpkin seeds to top it off and add a little crunch. Feel free to add whatever you please to customize to your liking.
The chia seeds will expand leaving it like the consistency of pudding. They have amazing health and healing benefits and we try to incorporate them daily. I recently wrote about chia and my other favorite seeds. You can click here to read more if you missed it.
