Ramadan Recipes: Raw chocolate pudding (made with cashews)

by Mozzified Contributor Shaina Shealy

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.
