Lemon Date Chia Pudding

Recipe by Megan Stulberg

Pudding has quickly become one of my favourite snacks to make! I buy chia pudding pods on-the-go a lot, but making it at home instead means bigger portions and more flavour choices.

This recipe is vegan (obviously) as well as gluten-free, raw, no-bake and refined sugar-free. Soaked chia seeds are amazing for digestion! Learn more about the benefits of chia seeds here.

Ingredients…

  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk

  • 1/2 cup black chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • Handful of blackberries, for garnish

Directions…

  1. Using a high-speed blender, chop dates until finely processed.
  2. Mix chia seeds and almond milk together in a large bowl. Add dates, lemon juice and maple syrup.

Makes four servings (or one really big serving, if you’re me).
