Chia Pudding with Cardamom Cream

IMG_2299-1024x682

Chia seeds are a power house of nutrients!  High in fiber, omega fatty acids, calcium, antioxidants and much more – even protein!

Ingredients:    

  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup fresh berries (pick your favorite – raspberries, blueberries or blackberries)

*This is delicious also with bananas or peaches!

Cardamom Cream:

  •  2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 6 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2-1 tsp ground cardamom

 

*Feel free to subsitute 2 cups of unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk for the cashews & water.

Directions:

Blend together Cardamom Cream ingredients until smooth and add to chia seeds. Stir well and allow to sit in the refrigerator until the mixture thickens. (about 15 minutes)

Add your fresh fruit and enjoy.   Serve chilled or at room temperature. Can be stored in an airtight glass container in the fridge for up to one week, but I doubt that it will be around that long  😉
