Chia Seed Pudding

Ahhh Chia Seed Pudding!! So good!! Chia seeds have so many wonderful properties that I want to incorporate them into our daily lives. See my post on Chia Seeds: Superfoods.

This recipe was so amazing!! I know I am always making new recipes but this needs to become a staple in my house! We normally just have a juice, smoothies or fruit for breakfast, but on the weekends we like to enjoy a little more. Last weekend we  feasted on the Blueberry Flax Pancakes which were amazing. This was a little less decadent but still so divine!! This can be a dessert, breakast, lunch or dinner. It is pretty much a perfect food!

Chia Pudding
1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked for 4 hours – overnight
3 pitted, jumbo Medjool dates soaked for 1 hour in 2 cups of filtered water (Keep soak water for the recipe)
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2-1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
Several drops of liquid stevia to taste

Soak the cashews for at least 4 hours and rinse. In a Vita-mix or blender combine cashews, dates, their 2 cups of soak water, vanilla, and cinnamon and blend until smooth. In a medium bowl combine this mixture with the chia seeds. Whisk for 1-2 minutes. Let stand in the fridge for 10 minutes and whisk again to prevent clumps. Add the stevia to taste. You can either begin to eat it then or put back in the fridge, covered for 6-8 hours (overnight) and even more of the nutrients will be accessible then.
