This recipe contains two components that can be eaten on their own or layered together.
Cardamom Coconut Chia Pudding
- 1 cup coconut milk
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- Dash of cardamom powder
- Honey, maple syrup, or other sweetener to taste (optional)
Stir chia seeds into coconut milk and add cardamom. I didn’t add sweetener because I knew I’d be eating it with the plenty sweet chocolate pudding (recipe below). I also kept sweetener out of it so it would more versatile for later breakfasts and snacks. It was perfect topped with a sliced banana.
Raw Orange-Scented Chocolate Pudding
- 1 medium avocado
- ½ cup hazelnuts
- juice of one orange
- zest of one orange
- ½ cup pitted dates
- tsp vanilla
- ½ cup almond (or coconut) milk
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cacao powder
- dash of sea salt
You’ll need a vitamix or other high powered food processor. Dump all ingredients into food processor and puree until smooth. Add more nut milk if needed.
