Holiday Chia Pudding

I am always experimenting on myself by changing up my eating. Starting this week I have incorporated breakfast instead of just my juice. I am still drinking my juice, but having a solid breakfast first. I have already started to notice changes so I think this was a great decision for me. For this first week I decided to make Kristen’s Chia Pudding- I have wanted to make this for a while. As you know I love all things chia so I thought this would be the perfect go-to breakfast of choice. The best part is you can make a big bunch and it stays fresh in the fridge for 5 days or so. I doubled the recipe so that it would last me the whole week and it did 🙂 I over did it on the spices, so just have a lighter hand than me when you get to that part. Other than that this was deelish and a welcome change to my morning routine.

Holiday Chia Pudding
By Kristen Suzanne
Yield 1 1/4 cups

1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup dried coconut, shredded & unsweetened
1 cup water
1/4 cup raw cashews (soaked 1 hour, drained and rinsed)
4 soft medjool dates, pitted
2 cloves
1 teaspoon lucuma powder
1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Place the chia seeds and coconut in a small bowl, briefly stir to mix, and set aside. Blend the remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour the blended cashew mixture into the bowl with the chia seeds and coconut and stir. Wait a few minutes and stir again. Wait a few minutes, again, and stir. Do the “wait and stir” once more, and then place the Holiday Chia Pudding in the refrigerator for about 15 – 20 minutes (or longer, if desired). I normally leave them in overnight. Then, enjoy.
