Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Vanilla_Chia_Seed_Pudding_Recipe_001

I’ve been trying out different chia pudding for a while, and believe me, some don’t work out very well, such as blended fruits ones as they lose colour. I finally came up with one that really worked out, and that was vanilla!

It’s funny but this recipe almost came out a little sweeter than what I was used to! A lot of it was the rice milk powder, which had an awesome, strong vanilla flavour which I had to use. You can buy that easily on Amazon.

I just added a little bit of cacao nibs and powder as topping, you don’t have to add that, you can add anything you see fit as topping if you like, or eat it the way it is. It’s super filling, which can be a little surprising!

So yes, as you can see I love using pure fruit juice to sweeten things. If you don’t have the juice at all, you can add water, and then add a tablespoon of maple syrup or other liquid sweetener of choice, that would work equally as well.

Note: If you want your pudding to be lighter in colour without any spots, you may want to pre-soak the almonds, then remove the skin, as the skin can cause the pudding to appear darker. You can also try replacing the almonds with cashew, as I believe that would work just as good.

Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

1/2 cup white grape juice
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup almonds
2 tablespoons better than milk rice powder, vanilla
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon flaked/shredded coconut
1/4 teaspoon ground vanilla powder
1/4 cup chia seeds

Topping
A sprinkle cacao nibs
A sprinkle cacao powder

Combine the grape juice (this is for sweetness, so please don’t substitute unless it’s another pure fruit juice of similar colour and sweetness), water, almonds, rice milk powder, vanilla extract, coconut and vanilla powder in a high speed blender.

Blend until everything becomes a thick liquid.

Pour it into a bowl, and add the chia seeds. Stir immediately until everything is not clumping and spread evenly, then let it sit for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. By that time, the pudding should be nice and thick.

Serve with cacao nibs and cacao powder as topping if desired.

    Hello,
    I was just wondering on the quantity as it said serves two? Two giants? Two baby birds? And also i have a second question, how long will the pudding last refrigerated? A day?
    Thanks!!

      HAHA, love that!! Perhaps two medium chickens LOL.
      Like you will probably be satisfied after having one serving.
      hmm I never really tried to refrigerate them so I would say perhaps a day to be safe.
