Cherry Almond Chia Seed Pudding

I visited my naturopath, Kelsey Duncan at Natural Solutions about a week and a half ago and she thought that Chia pudding would be a great addition to my diet in order to add some good fats and fibre into my nightly routine. So I have tried a few versions; Chocolate Banana and now this Cherry Almond version and so far this one’s my fave! If you have an issue with texture feel free to blend this all up together for a smoother pudding. I personally prefer the little bite of the seeds whole. But to each their own. Feels like dessert but you get the green light to have it midweek…which is always a treat 😉

Cherry Almond Chia Seed Pudding (make 4 servings):
2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup frozen cherries, chopped (or keep whole if blending)
1 tsp pure powdered Stevia (more or less to appeal to your taste)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chia seeds

4 tsp pure maple syrup (less or omit, base this on your taste)

Non Blended Version:

1) Combine the almond milk, Stevia, vanilla, maple syrup and chia seeds together in a bowl. Let sit then stir again after 5 mins. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours or ideally overnight. When ready to serve, top with 1/4 of the cherries (chopped).

Smoother Blended Version:

*Blend the cherries, almond milk, stevia, maple syrup and vanilla until creamy and smooth. Add the chia seeds in and whisk to combine. Let rest for 5 minutes then stir again. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight*
