Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia Pudding

All vegan and raw food chefs know, the way to a carnivore's and dairy-ofiles' heart is dessert. Most of the time it involves an avocado, raw cacao powder, maple syrup, a vitamix, berries and some good old fashioned love - bubby style. In this case, its even more simple: mix a couple of ingredients in a bowl, chill overnight, and dress with any and all classic sweet-veeg toppings.

1 cup organic almond [hazelnut, coconut, or flaxseed] milk 
4 tablespoons organic chia seeds
3/4 - 1 tbsp. maple syrup (honey works too)
*may stir in a tablespoon of raw cacao powder to make chocolate pudding*

pick some toppings: unsweetened shredded coconut, goji berries, thompson raisins, walnuts, chopped dates, unsweetened dried cranberries, almond slivers, etc. 

Mix chia seeds and non-dairy milk in a bowl and be sure to get all the seeds immersed. Stir in the maple syrup, cover and chill overnight. Wake up to the gelatinous creaminess of your chia seed pudding and throw on your fav toppings...what toppings did you use?


  1. Love healthy, no-cook, 2 min recipes like this. I have dried gojis - do you recommend adding them to the soak?

  2. You can certainly add the gojis into the soak - you ca also 'flash' soak them in warm water in the morning before topping off the pudding :)
