Chia Seed Pudding

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
- 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)
- 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.
- Let chill for at least 4 hours and overnight is even better.
- Chia seeds will expand and turn into pudding the consistency of thick applesauce (it won’t get really thick).
- Serve cold with fresh or stewed fruit, yogurt, or raw honey.
