This recipe was adapted from Raw Chia Pudding from Young on Raw Food.

Wow, I never knew you could make chia pudding like that. I always thought it was fascinating how those little seeds just get all thick in water. I wonder what causes them to do that.

It’s funny but my hubby was saying how the pudding almost looked like an alligator skin (which is so true) and then, guess what? I had this nightmare that an alligator was chasing after me, eating all these people and spitting out things, and trying to kill me! Hahahah!

Raw Chia Seed and Blueberry Pudding

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond/rice milk
1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons blueberries (divided*)
1-2 teaspoons pure maple syrup

In a bowl, combine the 1/4 cup of chia seeds with a cup of almond/rice milk. Use a spoon to stir for a minute and leave it sitting for about half an hour, so that the seeds can gel and thicken. Be sure to stir every 5 minutes so the seeds don’t clump together.

Add half a cup of blueberries into the blender and blend until it becomes a mushy sauce.

Once the chia pudding becomes thick, add the blended blueberries into the chia pudding mixture and stir well. Finally, add the remaining blueberries and pure maple syrup. Be sure to add one teaspoon at a time and taste the sweetness. Only add more if you feel that you need it.

Give it about five more minutes to thicken.
