Chia pudding is a wonderful way to get in some healthy chia seed. Here is my recipe, inspired by all of the above!

Choccie Cherry Chia Pudding

2 tablespoons chia seed
1 tablespoon hemp seed
1 teaspoon cacao powder
1 teaspoon agave, or sweetener of choice
10 pitted cherries, chopped or halved
1/4 cup brazil nut milk*, or milk of choice:)

*Brazil nut milk:
12 brazil nuts, shelled:)
1 cup water
vanilla and sweetener, optional

For 1 cup of milk:
Blend all ingredients, strain, or not...lol

1. For chia pudding, mix chia, hemp, cacao.
2. Add nut milk. Add as much as desired, but at least 1/4 cup.
3. Stir until combined.
4. Sweeten to taste.
5. Add cherries, and an extra sprinkle of that healthy hemp:)

Chia pudding is a great recipe idea to make your own.

There are endless combinations, just put in what you like:)

You must be psychic I have been collecting chia pudding recipes online lately 'cause I love the stuff. I've just made a batch of banana chia pudding and can't wait to try yours, my hubby loves cherries. Thanks for the links there are a few there that I don't have. You are now officially an enabler to my chia pudding addiction. ;)

love chia pudding! just had a bit this morning. usually i just throw in whatever is around, it's so versatile! where the heck is everyone getting these fresh cherries in January? we don't seem to have them in my neighborhood.

love your heart shaped bowl. i wonder if i look hard enough at the thrift store i can find one.

evergreen said...

Hi Lorri! Happy to help with your addiction:)

I am sure there are lots more recipes out there! Let me know of any good ones I missed:)

~bitt~I almost hesitate to call this a recipe, because you can't really mess it up, and I usually don't even measure...hehe.

The co-op had some cherries, and I also noticed them in W-mart(eeek!)

This sweet little bowl is from Goodwill! Most of the specialty plates and bowls on the blog are from there:)

I'm loving the chia trend too! I have to eat some every day right now :). Beautiful presentation, as always.

Joanna Steven said...

evergreen said...

~Joanna~I look forward to your chia pudding post!
