Description

Yes, chia pudding is something revered by health nuts everywhere...but you don't have to be on a health kick to enjoy it! It actually tastes very similar to tapioca or rice pudding - 2 tried and true comfort foods. This recipe by Amy Lyons of Fragrant Vanilla Cake also happens to feature a hefty serving of raw chocolate (which never hurts!) paired with fresh seasonal cherries...yum!

Ingredients

At a glance
Serves
3
1 cups filtered water
1/4 cup raw almond butter 
3 Tbsp raw cacao powder
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 tsp sea salt
2/3 cup chia seeds
1 1/2 cups pitted cherries

Methods/steps

1. In a high speed blender, combine the water, almond butter, cacao powder, maple syrup, and blend until smooth.

2. Add to a bowl with the chia seeds and whisk until blended.

3. Let sit at least 30 minutes at least until the seeds have become creamy like rice pudding and soaked up a lot of the liquid.  Either stir the cherries in, or you can layer them with the pudding in serving jars.

Enjoy!
