Chia Seed Pudding

by KalaLea on September 13, 2014 • Posted in News

On Saturday, September 13, 2014, I participated in GrowNYC’s Fresh Food Box Program by offering a cooking demo while serving chia seed pudding with stewed apples and plums. Although the weather was grey, we had a great day. It’s an awesome program that unlike Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), you do not need to commit for an entire season. You can order on a weekly basis. The cost of one box is $10.00 and organic eggs are $3.50 per dozen. Find out more by going to their site. Thanks to Jane, Rachel, Tia, and Jackie.

Chia is the Mayan word for strength.

Recipe serves 3-4 happy individuals

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup white chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups almond, hemp or rice milk
  • 1-2 tbsps maple syrup, agave or honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • fresh fruit (you choose)
  • 1 medium sized mason jar (16-20 ounces)

Instructions

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a pint jar. Cover the jar with a lid and give it a vigorous shake until seeds and milk are mixed well.
  2. Let chill for at least 4 hours and overnight is even better.
  3. Chia seeds will expand and turn into pudding the consistency of thick applesauce (it won’t get really thick).
  4. Serve cold with fresh or stewed fruit, yogurt, or raw honey.
