Hi, y’all!

Today, I’m going to share with you my experience of making Averie’s Raw Vegan Chia Seed Pudding. You can find all sorts of variations she’s created by checking out her chia seed category over at Love Veggies & Yoga.

I was super excited the other day when I mentioned I received a package from NuNaturals.com.

Why, you ask? Well, of course, I’m excited to get creative with all their tasty products, but I was even MORE excited when I saw my RAWkin’ friend, Averie, included in the information packet.

You go, Averie!

And now it’s Raw Juice Girl’s turn to try her hand at Averie’s Raw Vegan Chia Seed Pudding.

I followed her recipe to a T. (View her chia seed variations here.)

All Thickened Up!

The amount of agave was too much for me – lots of sweetness! So, the next time I made myself some chia seed pudding, I used half the amount Averie does. She uses 2 tablespoons of agave nectar, and I cut it down to 1. Even that was too sweet for me, so now I just drizzle a little agave and it’s just right for me (kind of like the porridge from Goldilocks and the Three Bears! ;-)

But this is soooooooooooo delicious, y’all! If you’ve never made it – and you have the ingredients on hand – I urge you to stop what you’re doing and whip some up. Like, now! Seriously. It’s SO good!

Have you ever made raw, vegan chia seed pudding? Did you like it? Are you addicted to it yet? So far, I’ve enjoyed chia seed pudding as breakfast, and as a snack. YUM!

And guess what’s coming up? My chocolate version of chia seed pudding. It’s similar to Averie’s, but I put my own twist on this one. Can you guess what ingredient I used?

Stay tuned…. ;-)

    • You’re welcome!! :-D

      Wow, thanks. I made some raw cookie balls today, too! :-D

      Yep, I’ve found my “just right” amount of agave. I’ve tried to stay away from sweets for a long time, but I’m going to make myself keep some raw treats on hand from now on. They’re fun to make – and good for me! Woo hoo!!!

      Thanks for stopping by, Averie. I know you’re a busy, busy bee so it means a lot.

      Hugs,
      Michele

  3. Hi Michele, I make Chia seed pudding almost daily for my son lately. He loves it for breakfast with bananas and crumbled coconut butter or apples and cinnamon with a touch of agave. Sometimes he asks me to send it in his lunch with other fruit and/or sunflower or pumpkin seeds and we always include hemp seeds.
    I know he will eat it AND be getting a filling, nutritious meal when I pack it in his lunch. I also notice he seems happier when he arrives home from a long day at school and I think it’s because his energy level is sustained with the Chia seeds.
    Did I tell you about my Chia cookies?! MM-MM-MMM! :)

  4. Oh, P.S., the other day I added in some pureed raw pumpkin with agave, nutmeg and cinnamon with some diced apple pieces. It was A-MA-ZING! (We soak ours in raw almond or hemp milk btw.) :)

  5. Hey Michele.
    Your blog is a learning blog for me. I love to learn more about raw and good food, but I have none of the ingredients.
    I will have to learn a lot of things. I never heard of these seeds, yes there are people like me in the world, but we have a great health food shop and I will enquire.
    I will be on a steep learning curve, I can tell. However it will be worth it.

  8. I love chia seed pudding and it’s tapioca-ish texture. I’ve found it to be great for travel. I just bring it in a small container and then when I get wherever I’m going, I mix it with small package rice milk, juice, or even water if I just need to pound some nutrition. Worked perfectly to keep my tummy from rumbling through a business meeting and helped me easily turn down the plate of cooked sweets on the table. Chia rocks!
