If you like tapioca pudding, you’re going to love this pudding. Even if you don’t like tapioca, give this a try. Even little kids love it. It’s a great healthy dessert recipe without being too sweet, rich, or heavy. And it’s almost entirely raw if you use raw agave and make your own non-dairy milk.
1/3 cup Chia Seeds
2 cups non-dairy milk (eg almond or hemp; coconut is especially yummy)
2 Tbsp agave nectar (adjust for sweetness)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
Combine the chia seeds with the non-dairy milk and leave at room temperature, stirring frequently (the chia seeds expand rapidly; use less milk if using a thinner one like soy or rice).
Once your pudding is at the desired consistency (approx 20 to 30 minutes), stir in the agave nectar and vanilla. Divide into dessert dishes and garnish with berries if desired.
Note: For all phases of the Clean Eating Healthy Detox Diet, omit the agave nectar (for Phase 1 omit the berries).
Chia seeds are a superfood. They are a great source of Omega 3 fats, which help reduce inflammation and do other amazing things for your body. They also have respectable amounts of protein, antioxidents, fiber, and calcium.
