Recipe Directions

  • 1. Add all ingredients (except chia seeds) to your high-speed blender. Remember, use nice, fresh oranges that have most of the white external rind bits cut off.
  • 2. Blend mixture until very creamy and smooth (do not add the chia seeds!).
  • 3. Place untouched chia seeds in a mixing bowl. Pour orange mixture on top of chia seeds.
  • 4. Stir mixture vigorously with a spoon. Ensure that the chia seeds are well distributed.
  • 5. Chill this raw orange chia seed pudding recipe in the refrigerator for at least three hours, stirring once per hour if you can remember to do so (no biggie if you forget)! However, it is important to let this chia pudding recipe sit in the fridge for a few hours before consuming because the chia seeds will expand up to 10 times their original size, similar to tapioca seeds, and then it tastes that much better.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Creamy orange chia seed pudding will definitely quench your desire for a creamy, orange treat! It's very easy to prepare, but it does need to sit in the fridge for a couple of hours so that the chia seeds can plump up (similar to tapioca). It is not the most aesthetically pleasing recipe, because the orange and black seeds are sort of an odd combination in the bowl, but it would make a perfect Halloween dessert. 

Also, for taste I like to sprinkle a small amount of cinnamon on this raw chia pudding recipe just before serving.

I hope you like this orange chia seed pudding recipe. I just made it up! And I absolutely love it. It tastes like an orange creamsicle :)

What would happen if you put the chia seeds in the grinder for a smoother pudding. would they work as good? How much chia seeds would you recommend to substitute for 3-4 tbsp corn starch?
Thanks

Hi Jackie, I am not clear about the corn starch question, but to answer your ground chia seed question that would be fine

Hi Leslie, you could easily use agave nectar or maple syrup instead of honey if you like

Chia leaves taste very good. Can we add these to some green recipes? Do you have any idea about its nutrient contents

Chia seed contains essentail oils. How if we grind them before adding to the recipe? I think would help our body to make maximum use of the nutrients

Hi Shabbir, yes grinding them would be fine - it just wouldn't look like the above picture

Made this for a raw food demonstration last week for non-raw young people. It was so delicious I could have eaten the entire bowl by myself. Everyone loved it! Thanks!

I am guessing that you do not need to presoak nuts for recipes like this one? The cashews will "soak" in the mixture in the fridge - correct?

Thanks!

If the reason for soaking is to remove the enzymes that inhibit digestion would you not want to rinse them away before adding to the recipe ?

Yes, thank you Jutta. Good point. In general, soaking and rinsing is always a good idea. However, sometimes I am lazy and don't do it. But definitely if you have the time and patience it's a good idea to soak and rinse for the reasons you mentioned.
