Raw vegan chia seeds pudding-made 4 ways

I have had this big bag of chia seeds for a while now and I usually put them in my smoothies but that wasn’t enough to reduce the quantity much-which means low consumption of omega-3. As I was going through my recipes, this one caught my eye. A low calorie-very healthy brekky pudding ๐Ÿ™‚ Yep, you read it right-A pudding for breakfast. I was so thrilled just reading through the ingredients. Got this from a pamphlet which had info about how good raw veganism is for you and this recipe was at the end.

Please note: If you are not into slimy texture puddings, this is not for ya. Make a small batch of this and check if you like it. I loved it, my house mate did not. He said the texture was not for him. Let me know if you try this. I have this major issue where I love whatever I cook and can eat without complaining. If you think this is not a good recipe, I will take this down ๐Ÿ™‚

Serves: 4

You need:

  • 3/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 cups almond milk

Mix them all together and cover it with a cling wrap and refrigerate from anywhere between 4 hours to 24 hours ๐Ÿ™‚ I am going to call this ‘chia seed mixture’

The original recipe says you add fruits and nuts to the chia seed mixture alongย with agave and just have it ๐Ÿ™‚ย I have improvised it to my taste. If you have any ideas, let me know. Will add them here too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Pudding 1: Chocolate Almond Dates Chunky Chia Pudding

In a small mixing bowl, add 2 Tbsp cacao powder, 1 Tbsp almond meal, 3 medjool dates, a pinch sea salt and make a paste/pulse it in a food processor. ย Add 3-5 Tbsp of chia seed mixture and mix until well combined. Transfer to a serving bowl/wine glass, refrigerate for an hour and serve with chocolate shavings and almond meal ๐Ÿ™‚

Pudding 2: Banana Peanut Butter Chia Pudding

In a small mixing bowl, add 1 ripen banana, mash it with a fork, ย 1-2 Tbsp peanut butter, 2 tsp stevia, a pinch sea salt, 2 pinches cinnamon and make a paste. Add 3-5 Tbsp of chia seed mixture and mix until well combined.ย Transfer to a serving bowl/wine glass, refrigerate for an hour and serve with banana slices/peanut butter ๐Ÿ™‚

Pudding 3: Pistachios Saffron Cardamom Chia Pudding-Raw vegan kheer

In a smallย mixing bowl, add 2 Tbsp pistachios, 1 cardamom seeds (use mortar and pestle to crush the seeds), few strands saffron (to take the extract out, put them on a small plate, add a Tbsp of water/milk and rub them with your index finger-this releases the flavor), 2 Tbsp stevia, a pinch sea salt ย and make a paste. Add 3-5 Tbsp of chia seed mixture and mix until well combined.ย Transfer to a serving bowl/wine glass, refrigerate for an hour and serve with crushed pistachios ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Pudding 4: Coffee lovers’ Bitterย Chia Pudding [NOT RAW VEGAN]

In a smallย mixing bowl, add ย 1 tsp of instant coffee powder, 1 tsp cocoa powder, vanilla bean paste, 1 Tbsp Stevia, a pinch salt and mix them all well. I added a tsp of unhulled tahini and it made this terribly bitter. You could heat this in a microwave for 10 seconds to ease the dissolving process.ย Add 3-5 Tbsp of chia seed mixture and mix until well combined.ย Transfer to a serving bowl/wine glass, refrigerate for an hour and serve with stevia ย ๐Ÿ™‚

My personal favorite is banana peanut butter followed by the chunky dates one. Which one is your favorite?

  1. Sounds like you are addicted to chia seeds lol. Me too ๐Ÿ™‚ I like these and I will try them. You made me laugh about the slimy dessert comment mmmmmm a good point to talk about as I found out in my smoothies .. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Lol. I am addicted ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t want any one to make it and make funny faces ๐Ÿ˜› like my house mate. I hate slimy food-I can’t stand okra but I loved this-Very weird ๐Ÿ™‚

      • You are considerate but wise… I know many people think that vegan food is something that is not that great to try… I love okra but yes the sliminess is something that you kind of have to get used too. I veganized a Fijian India Curry dish with okra and it was very good… I made this for my work mates about 20 of them.. they all ate it up ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy the rain .. shhhh i mean sun ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Thanks Thom ๐Ÿ™‚ Ooo Okra in Fijian curry-sounds yum ๐Ÿ™‚ Jeez.. you can cook for 20 at a go? I can for maximum 6 ๐Ÿ˜› It is sun Thom ๐Ÿ™‚ Very clear sky ๐Ÿ˜› Lol ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Yes I was nervous cooking for that many but I am good at maths so managed to get the ingredients balanced well it was logistically a bit of a mission but I managed to borrow some pans lol. ๐Ÿ˜‰ awesome let the sun shine for you. After you are finished please sent the sun north lol ๐Ÿ˜‰ rain, rain, rain here !!!!!

      • That is awesome ๐Ÿ™‚ I am so bad at Math, I still go “2 in the mind, 3 on the fingers, after 2, ….” and add ๐Ÿ˜› I have let the sun know ๐Ÿ™‚ He should be there soon

  2. If I am not mistaken, Chia is what they use in Faloodas here, in India. Is it the same thing? My in laws say it is highly nutritious and a very good coolant. I like your recipes here. I have some at home, let me try it and gauge ๐Ÿ™‚

    • hmmm. Isn’t that tapioca? It is the best gift for vegans ๐Ÿ™‚ They are usually black,you get white ones too. Good luck Namrata ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you like it ๐Ÿ™‚
