Today I’m showing you how to make on of my favorite vegan snacks. My friends at the Sanoviv Medical Institute taught me how to make it – thanks, Sue!
It’s also super simple to make and guilt-free. Click play on the video above to learn how to make it.
I’m giving you a simple vanilla chia seed pudding recipe today, but you can get creative and add things like cinnamon, lemon zest or mint to change it up.
Place the cashews, water, maple syrup, vanilla and salt into a high powered blender (like a Vitamix) and blend until smooth and ultra creamy, about 30 seconds on high. You can also add any other flavorings to the blender at this point. Pour into a mixing bowl, then add the chia seeds and whisk together. Transfer to a glass storage container, then put it in the refrigerator to soak and thicken for at least 2 hours. If you do not have a high-powered blender soak the cashews for about 3 hours before blending them for a smoother consistency.
Enjoy it plain or garnish with berries. It’s great as a mid-day snack, or serve it in pretty cups for a beautiful vegan dessert.
