RECIPE FOR YOUR PUDDING
1 1/2 cups of organic almond milk (can bought from and organic food supplies shop)
1/2 avocado, peeled and seeded
1/4 cup of coconut nectar
2 tbs cacao powder
pinch of sea salt
1/3 cup of chia seeds
1 cup pomegranate seeds – leave some to garnish
1/3 cup pistachio nuts, shelled and roughly chopped – leave some to garnish
3 tsp rosewater
1 tsp vanilla essence/extract
some mint to garnish
Blend in blender the almond milk, avocado, coconut nectar, cacao powder and salt until smooth.
Place chia seeds in a large bowl and pour the milk mixture over them. Stir until well mixed. Add in most of the pomegranate seeds being sure you leave enough to garnish with at the end. Add in the remaining ingredients that are not garnish ingredients and stir. Add a little water if the pudding seems too thick, remembering the chia seeds in the pudding mixture will expand slightly over night.
Pour into 4 serving bowls and refrigerate over night to set.
When you are serving the pudding, top them with the left over pomegranate seeds, pistachios and mint leaves.
Eat immediately and enjoy your healthy, super food and guilt free christmas pudding!
