Chia Seed Pudding with Raspberry Purée
1 cup of raspberries (can use frozen)
1 tsp grass fed gelatin or 2 tsp arrowroot powder to help gel but this is optional. Great as is.
1 T water.
Warm berries, gelatin//arrowroot, and water in a small sauce pan over low heat. Once warmed and bubbling a bit, remove from heat and mash the berries with a fork. Put berries in a glass storage container, cover and chill in fridge.
3 tablespoons organic chia seeds. I use this brand.
1/2 cup coconut/almond milk. Nutpods would also work great here! Try vanilla or cinnamon swirl.
splash of vanilla
pinch of cinnamon
:: Additional Options ::
maple syrup, cocoa powder, stevia.
Place all chia ingredients in a jar or glass dish, stir, cover, chill in fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight. Give it a good stir just before assembling!
To assemble simply as is:
Layer raspberry purée in the bottom of your glass or mason jar, followed by the chia pudding, top with fresh berries!.
Fancy version with additions:
Layer half of the raspberry purée in the bottom of your glass , followed by half the chia pudding, add some granola, coconut, pumpkin seeds, Cacao nibs, etc. Add the remaining chia pudding, ending with the remaining raspberry purée, sprinkle a little coconut or more granola on top and finish with some fresh berries!
Note: this is not sweet unless you add the maple syrup or stevia. I prefer the unsweet version but if you want more of a treat, add the maple syrup to the chia mix. Approx 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup. You can add more once the pudding is set as well.
