Directions

  • 1. Put all ingredients (except the chia seeds and the raisins) in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
  • 2. Place chia seeds and raisins in a large bowl. Pour the blended mixture on top of the chia seeds and rasins, mixing slowly and thoroughly.
  • 3. Cover raw rice pudding mixture and refrigerate for at least one hour. The purpose of refrigerating and letting the mixture sit for at least an hour is to allow the chia seeds to absorb the liquid. (Chia seeds are similar to tapioca. They increase in size!) Ideally, let this recipe sit in fridge for 3 hours. Overnight is even better!
  • 4. Stir thoroughly before serving.

Oh dear, another raw rice pudding recipe. I am starting to get a reputation as the type of girl who only eats chia pudding, lol.

Well, since I've discovered this raw rice pudding, the fact is true. I don't even need to leave the house as long as I have a batch of this old-fashioned rice pudding on hand!

Yep, no rice Janie :)  The chia seeds kind of act like "rice" though :)

how many servings in this recipe? I see a serving is 7 oz. Do you think grated broccoli would substitute for the cashews, or what about almonds, walnuts? Cashews are an avoid for "O" blood type. thanks!

Hi Linda!

This recipe makes about 4 servings. Grated broccoli is NOT a good substitution for cashews in this recipe (bad flavor)!! Can you do macadamia nuts? Those would work instead :)

(The cashews/macadamia nuts are needed to supply creaminess to the recipe.)

No macadamia either, could do almonds or walnuts blanched, do you think either or both of these would work?

Hi Linda, No, almonds will be too gritty and walnuts aren't quite right either.

Instead of the cashews, you can do 1 large banana instead, it will change the flavor about, but it will give you the creaminess that you need.

Hope this helps!
