This company-worthy pudding gets its creamy texture from omega-3-rich chia seeds. It’s simple, healthful and extremely delicious.

Ingredients:

1 cup unsweetened soy, hemp or almond milk
1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
1 cup water
4 medjool dates, pitted or 8 regular dates, pitted
1/2 teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla flavor
1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 cup chia seeds, divided

Instructions:

Blend milk, coconut, water, dates, vanilla, cardamom and 1/4 cup of the chia seeds in a high-powered blender. Add additional milk if needed to adjust consistency. Stir in remaining 1/4 cup chia seeds. Refrigerate for 15 minutes and stir again to distribute seeds evenly.

If desired, top with fresh berries and/or toasted unsweetened coconut.
For a parfait, alternate layers of berries with pudding in a wine glass.
For a chocolate chia pudding, blend in 2 tablespoons natural cocoa powder.

Made the chocolate version and it's very good. Next time I'll use medjool dates or add more dates because it wasn't sweet enough for me

Wow, this is delicious! I did do some substitutions: I used 2 cups almond milk since I didn't have any coconut milk. And I used 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg since I didn't have any cardamom either. I blended all the seeds together in the blender. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Fabulous! I tried both the regular and chocolate versions. Preferred the chocolate, without cardamom. Both were incredibly creamy and delicious.

Delicious. Subistuted 1/2c Pom juice for 1/2c almond milk. Ground 1/2 of the seeds and liked the consistency better
Will make again

I substituted one teaspoon of cinnamon instead of cardamom. I've made it a few times, sometimes with only soymilk. It tasts eqully good that way. When I used just almond milk, it wasn't as good. Hubby liked this so much, I made a double batch and we split-it for breakfast three days in a row! and he doesn't normally eat leftovers! He liked it topped with dry coconut, slivered almonds, cashews and raisins. I just top with raisins and slivered almonds. I also used an immersion blender in a pinch, and it was fine.

Yom. Cardamom is one of my favorite spices and this recipe delivered. I had it for breakfast this morning and mixed with a handful of blueberries. The consistency was a little more watery than I'd like -- hopefully it'll set up a little firmer after more time in the fridge.
