10. Raw Vegan Chia Pudding:

Chia pudding is a versatile and nutritious breakfast or dessert option. Combine chia seeds with your choice of plant-based milk and sweeteners, and let it sit overnight for a delicious and creamy treat.

  • Non-dairy milk – I recommend Silk’s Oat Yeah Vanilla Oatmilk for a creaminess that rivals dairy milk in taste and texture. 

  • Chia Seeds – It goes without saying that chia seeds are essential for chia pudding. Chia seeds are packed omega-3s fiber and protien.

  • Cacao Powder – You can use cocoa powder for this recipe, but I recommend raw cacao powder. It provides the same chocolate taste while being packed full of antioxidants, calcium, iron.
  • Medjool Dates or Maple Syrup – I recommend  unrefined sugar for this recipe. Dates are high in fiber and antioxidants. However, maple syrup is lower on the glycemic index and, with maple syrup, you can make this pudding without a blender.

  • Vanilla Extract and Salt – Both vanilla extract and salt add a deeper, more complex flavor that balances out the sweet and bitter.
