Did anyone else notice a post about chia seed pudding in the N&GE forum a few days ago? You can make any simple mix of your favorite "milk"- add a bit of sweetner- and some chia seeds- whir it in the blender to break them up or leave them whole for a tapioca effect- let it cool for a while and instant pudding! No starches involved! Plus, chia seeds are supposed to be insanely healthy for you!
I made this recipe the other day, but I was out of dates- so I think I used some raw honey. Oh, and I made my own coconut milk by mixing in 1/2 c shredded unsweet coconut w/ 1 c water in the blender until smooth.
