It’s Meatless Monday over here, and you know what that means! Another delicious, vegan recipe for you to enjoy!
It has been a minute and a half since I posted a chia pudding recipe on here. I did strawberry and chocolate versions last year. The posts just crack me up though, LLV definitely used to be a bit more “so this is what I did and ate today…”.
Really though, I actually love this version of the pudding so much more than others I’ve made! Fresh peaches just have this magic to them. They’re so sweet that you don’t even need to add any extra sweetener. Mmmmm, so mouth-watering!
It’s made with just a few basic ingredients, takes almost no time to prepare, and only needs to sit for maybe 10 minutes before consuming. It makes a great breakfast, snack, or even dessert. Oh, did I mention it’s a great source of vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, omega-3s, protein and fiber? Win!
- 1 fresh peach
- ~1/4 cup almond milk
- 1/4 t cinnamon
- 1/8 t nutmeg
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
1. Quarter the peach and remove the pit.
2. Put the peach in the blender, and blend on high until it becomes a puree.
3. Scrape down the sides, and add enough almond milk to make the total amount of peach and almond milk in the blender equal one cup. This should be about a quarter of a cup, depending on the size of your peach. Add cinnamon and nutmeg, as well.
4. Blend on low until well mixed.
5. Add the chia seeds to a small bowl or glass. Pour the peach mixture over the chia seeds.
6. Mix with a spoon, then set in the refrigerator for 10 minutes or longer. The chia seeds will form a gel, setting the pudding.
These are going to be a pretty regular snack around my house. It’s sweet and creamy, with a little bit of crunch from the chia seeds. The spices also bring a lovely element to it. I do love me some cinnamon and nutmeg!
I’m currently reading Perfect Health by Dr. Deepak Chopra, which teaches the principles of Ayurvedic (traditional Indian) medicine. According to Ayurveda, everyone fits into one or two “types” or “doshas”. My primary dosha is called Vata, which is by nature cold and dry. Warming spices, like cinnamon and nutmeg, can be very beneficial for balancing Vata. To find out your dosha, and learn a bit about what would be balancing for you, click here. Leave me a comment telling me your primary dosha, and what you’re going to do to help balance your dosha!
Enjoy your week!
