Nut free Chia Pudding, two basic recipes~ 

Hi! I hope you are all well and thriving! In this recipe post I wanted to show you two simple and yummy chia recipes, both nut free. You can eat them for breakfast or as an evening meal, either way, they are quite filling and hearty. 

I guess that you, like me, are more or less crazy about strawberries, right? :D This time of the year we have them ready for harvest in Sweden, so I always have to make something of them right away. 

The Strawberry Chia recipe is super simple, it has only three ingredients (strawberries, chia and agave). You can also spice it up with your favorite super foods. I love to add purple corn, acai berry powder or hemp to a strawberry recipe like this one, as it blends nicely in color and taste. 

Strawberry Chia Pudding (one serving)

• 500 g / 18 oz of strawberries
• 2 tbsp agave nectar or the sweetener of your choice
• 4 tbsp chia seeds

In a blender or food processor, process the strawberries into liquid. Add the agave and chia and mix again. Put in the fridge to rest. (I find that letting it rest over night makes it perfect as a breakfast, and by then you've also got a really thick pudding.) Decorate with hemp seeds, nuts or what you prefer.

Chia pudding på jordgubbe (en portion)

• 500 g jordgubbar
• 2 msk Agave nektar
• 4 msk Chia frön

Kör jordgubbarna i mixer tills du har en flytande vätska. Tillsätt agaven och chiafröna och mixa igen. Ställ i kylen för att låta fröna svälla helt. Jag låter de vila under natten, så har jag en härlig frukost till morgonen. Garnera med mer jordgubbar och hampa på toppen. Du kan också tillsätta olika super foods till puddingen för att göra den mer närigsrik, tex purple corn, acai bärpulver eller maca

Next recipe, is a Chia Banana pudding with a bit more super power to it. It requires a nut milk bag.

Banana Chia pudding

• 1 cup of coconut milk (process 1 cup shredded coconut with 2 cups of water, press through a nut milk bag).
• 1 banana
• 4 tbsp chia seeds
• 1 tbsp virgin coconut oil, hard but soft enough to scoop up with a spoon.
• 1 tbsp agave nectar or the sweetener of your choice
• 1/4 tsp real vanilla 
• 1/2 tsp mesquite 
Make the coconut milk and in a food processor, blend it with the rest of the ingredients until smooth. Let the pudding rest in the fridge over night to fully swell!

Chiapudding på banan

• 2 dl cocosmjölk (mixa 1.5 dl cocosflingor med 4 dl vatten, pressa blandningen genom en Nötmjölkspåse)

• 1 banan
• 4 msk Chiafrön
• 1 msk virgin Cocosolja, hård men mjuk nog att skopa upp med sked. 
• 1 msk Agave nektar
• 1/4 tsk äkta vanilj
• 1/2 tsk Mesquite-mjöl

Gör cocosmjölken direkt ner i en matberedare. Tillsätt övriga ingredienser och mixa tills slät. Släng i en näve kakao kross / nibs och låt vila i kylskåpet under natten. Vid servering, dekorera med skivade bananer plus mer nibs!

I recently wrote an article on the health benefits of chia seeds, check it out and let me know what do you think about it, I would really appreciate it!
