pure2raw recipe: no stevia mint chia seed pudding with hemp seed milk

prep-time: 10 minutes

serves: 2-3

tools needed: bowl

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup hemp seed milk (add more or less depending on how thick you like your puddings)
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract or mint extract
  • 1 teaspoon spirulina (for color, so it is optional)

Directions:

Place hemp seed milk in bowl along with chia seeds, peppermint extract and spirulina. Stir till combined.

Let sit for about 10 minutes. Then enjoy.

we doubled the mint extract compared to the first time we made our mint chia pudding because we had no sweetness so the extra flavor of mint really helped. but please adjust to your liking.

delicious! we are slowly getting used to things not being so sweet and starting to enjoy it. it is nice not relying on sugar so much.

twins question: mint in the morning yay or nay? do you make your own nut/seed milks? if so, what is your favorite? if not, would you ever try making your own milk?

till next time,

xoxo

    Okay I’m definitely trying this recipe! Sometimes I’ll have dessert but then I’ll keep on wanting more. I’ve found that anything sweet and minty helps to satisfy my sweet cravings. So this chia seed pudding is a perfect solution! Plus, my twin sister doesn’t like mint so I’ll get to have it all for myself :)

    Hello ladies. I make ALL my own nut milks. All kinds. I have a VitaMix and love how milks turn out. My most common are almond and cashew. I don’t purchase commercial milks anymore. I tried chia pudding once, and don’t like it. I think I like your mint recipe bunches, and may give it a try.

    thank you for all the wonderful recipes you share with us. I would like to know if you know of a non-gluten, no baking powder, no baking soda bread recipe? or a gluten free sprouted essene flat bread? I hope leaving this message on this page is appropiate.
    Best Regards. gna

    I only have ground chia (chia powder). Would that work? It was my first time buying it at the store and I wasn’t sure which one to go with – you guys usually use the seeds?
