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.

  • Mural painting at Malaika Beach Club ... a home away from home indeed. In 2001 while in Mali, West Africa, I traveled via pick-up truck nearly 21 hours to Djenne, the home of one of the oldest mosques. I would have continued on to Timbuktu but many foreigners had warned that the city was barren and unsafe. Today I wonder if those warnings came from a truthful or fear place...perhaps both. But my gut told me to stay in Djenne so that's what I did. Whenever I see any reference to this ancient capital, I reflect on that first trip to the Motherland alone. One of my most challenging yet enlightening trips...After a lengthy 2nd visit to East and South Africa, I'm back in NYC and feeling so grateful for the ability to travel, for new friends, for nature's healing powers and for love ❤️ and laughter. Feeling recharged. Looking forward to my next visit to Africa - Hugs and #happywhereamiwednesday #timbuktu #happywednesday #art #malaikabeachclub #mural #muralart #gratitude #africa #tanzania #kigamboni #nature #travel #eastafrica

  • For our last evening in the city of Dar, we decided on Ethiopian, one of my top 3 cuisines. The name of the restaurant is Addis in Dar. The ambiance was delightfully cozy...we were the first customers of the night. Four of us in total. The food hit the spot ... lentil wot (stew), chickpeas, mushrooms, lamb...yum yum! And I had a few sips of honey wine too. Def coming back next trip! #africa #eastafrica #tanzania #addisindar #ethiopian #daressalaam #winterindar #wdiet #lentils #lamb #chickpeas #ethiopia
  • Someone ripped this cartoon clip from a Tanzanian newspaper (I think) ... an illustration depicting the state of youth in these here times. Notice the other character holding up the main dude. And the other set of hands grabbing at his chest...#africa #tanzania #cartoon #youth #winterindar #socialmedia #substanceabuse
  • The weather in Dar es Salaam is HOT today. Hard to believe it's winter time. I nearly jumped into the mouth of this fish to cool down. Staying hydrated with water + tamarind and lemon juice...Happy Tuesday! #africa #tanzania #winterindar #fish
