Wild Things (Chia Pudding)


Basic Chia Pudding*
RAW, VEGAN! original recipe by allison sklar

what you’ll need

4 tbsp ground chia seed
1 cup unsweetened almond milk**
2 tbsp agave nectar
1 tbsp vanilla (optional)
**Note: soy, coconut or hemp milk would work too, all yielding different flavours.

how to do it

whisk all ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl.
allow mixture to sit and thicken, about 10 minutes.
Serve immediately, or refrigerate and keep for later.

*This is a basic recipe. On it’s own, it has a very mild flavour. For added flavour and pizzazz, I recommend incorporating one of the following variations:

BANANA – Add one pureed banana to the mixture

CHOCOLATE – Use chocolate almond milk instead of unsweetened. Reduce agave nectar by 1 tbsp. Top with cacao nibs.

TROPICAL – use coconut milk in place of almond. Add 2 tbsp shredded coconut, and 1/4 cup crushed pineapple.

BERRY – Add in the puree of about 1/2 cup of your favourite berries. Add 1/4 more ground chia seed if pudding becomes too watery.

  1. I just discovered the chia seed (cha cha chia!!!) this summer – so many uses for it – and it's good for us (this is a saver recipe for sure). I'm as usual doing an experiment for diabetes research to see if it really lives up to some of it's promises – but overall – love it – one of the better places to get organic is actually here in Montreal ( http://pranana.com/en/ ) – picking up a few bags next week when I'm off work!
