2013_02_28aOne ingredient I’ve heard a lot about lately is chia seed. Supposedly they are one of those superfoods packed with tons of nutrients. We’ve put them in smoothies and oatmeal before, but never a pudding. I found this recipe from a great site called Vegan Yack Attack.

What I like about this recipe is that there is no added sugar. The sweetness only comes from the apple juice and a 1/2 tsp of maple syrup. The chia seeds soak up the moisture from the apple juice and become a pudding/gelatine texture.

This was a great sweet treat to end our meal. It’s no apple pie, but it was light, refreshing, and absolutely satisfied my after dinner sweet tooth.

I found a couple other chia seed puddings I plan on trying in the coming weeks as well.

RECIPES:

Apple Chia Seed Pudding (I made 2.5x the recipe and it made enough for 4 servings)

Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding

Banana Chia Pudding
