1 1/2 cups (355 ml) almond milk (or your favorite flavored milk) 1/4 cup black chia seeds 1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder (or vanilla extract) 1 tablespoon raw agave syrup A pinch of salt Garnish: Raspberries (or your favorite berry)
The salt is not there for the taste of salt. A pinch of salt helps with the ionization process so the taste buds can pick up the taste of the vanilla.
To make this pudding, I mixed the seeds into almond milk and let the mixture set over night. The chia seeds naturally become gelatinous once in liquid. There is no heat. There are no additional thickening agents or cooking required. Truly a “raw food” recipe.
This pudding has a smooth vanilla note flavor that is lightly sweetened with agave, and a texture that resembles a tapioca or rice pudding.
