I'm pretty much a pudding fan. Raw puddings are surprisingly easy to make, and I love their smooth creamy texture, mmm. Here are 5 recipes for you to check out, if you haven't already!
Note that the first 4 recipes use chia seeds to thicken, and cashews to add creamy texture. The last recipe uses avocado for both creaminess and texture. But one thing these raw pudding recipes do have in common is their extremely good taste!
Raw Rice Pudding
This Raw Rice Pudding recipe doesn't actually contain rice (sorry to disappoint!). Nonetheless, darlings, it will totally remind you of the rice pudding from your childhood.
Cashews and chia seeds and raisins (of course!) are some of the ingredients in this delightful pudding.
Creamy Raw Fruit Chia Pudding
You really must try this Creamy Raw Fruit Chia Pudding! It's fruity and chocolate-y, and oh so smooth and creamy... yum!
I use raspberries and strawberries here, but you can use whatever berries your little heart desires!
Orange Chia Seed Pudding
When I first made this Orange Chia Seed Pudding, my first thought was "creamsicle"! Bursting with orange flavor, and so creamy good, this pudding is a favorite of mine.
Make sure you use fresh juicy oranges for an optimum orange taste sensation!
Raw Chocolate Chia Pudding
I truly think this Chocolate Chia Pudding tastes like melted chocolate ice cream! But maybe that's just me. Even so, this is a delicious chocolate-y pudding that you'll love!
Cashews are key to making this pudding creamy good.
Raw Chocolate Avocado Pudding
Believe me, this Chocolate Avocado Pudding will rock your boat! Who knew that avocado and cacao (plus a few other goodies) could meld into such a scrumptious dessert?
Actually, the secret sweetener in this recipe is dates. Amazing, really!
Pudding for dessert... or just because!
All of these recipes taste best when chilled for a little bit. This is so the pudding thickens and the flavors meld. But the little bitty wait is what makes these raw puddings so darned good. You won't miss the 'real' thing when you have these recipes on hand!
In fact, why wait for dessert? Pudding for a snack sounds good to me!
