Directions

  • 1. Blend cashews and water until nice and smooth.
  • 2. Add everything else (except the chia seeds). Blend again.
  • 3. Place the chia seeds in a bowl. Add the blended mixture. Stir thoroughly to ensure the chia seeds are well distributed.
  • 4. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or for at least 1 hour - ideally longer). (The purpose for refrigerating is to allow the chia seeds to plump up over time. They will increase approximately 10 times their size! And they will thicken the pudding in a few hours.)
  • 5. Eat in the morning or for dessert in the evening! Stir well again before eating.

Can this be made with a nut other than cashew, almond or peanut? (I'm intolerant to them.)

I was wondering if there was something else I could use instead of cashews?

Hi Eggy!

The cashews are there for creaminess. I suppose you could use a banana instead - but it will alter the flavor.

This pudding is delicious, I added 3 tbsp of hemp hearts to make it even healthier

Hi, I love those ideas for most of your recepies (I don't like mashrooms :) ). I was just wondering is it possible to replace cocoa powder in all your recepies with carob powder - unit for unit? Have you ever tried it?
Thank you

Hi Kristina,

Yes, you can use carob instead of cacao. I don't use carob very often myself, but when I do use it I use this ratio (since carob has a weaker flavor than cacao):

For every 1 part cacao I use 1.5 parts carob :)

can you replace the chia seeds with ground flax meal?

Hi Kat, No sorry, you cannot replace the chia seeds with ground flax! This is because the chia seeds plump up like tapioca, whereas flax seeds do not do the same thing :( sorry

So glad you enjoyed the pudding, Christine! I love chia puddings. Perfect comfort food. I cannot leave them sitting in the fridge for very long :)
