I don’t remember the first time I tried chia pudding, but I do remember how that moment changed my life! A dessert so healthy that’s great for either breakfast or after dinner? I was so down! I’ve played with different ratios and I find that 1:4 (1 part chia seeds to 4 parts liquid) works best for my taste. I topped this pudding with a thick layer of date caramel because it pairs so well with banana and mesquite, but you can decide to skip it. But fresh fruit on top is always a must!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup almond milk

  • 1 ripe banana

  • 3 dates

  • 1/2 tsp mesquite

FOR THE CARAMEL
  • 1 cup dates, chopped

  • 3/4 cup water

  • 1 tsp cashew butter

PREPARATION

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Blend all ingredients except chia seeds until smooth. Then pour the mixture in a bowl.
