Well, for my ice-cream-loving self this can be more than a little challenging to adhere to.
Thankfully, life just got a little bit easier thanks to this warm winter berry pudding.
It’s filled with nutritious superfoods and though berries might not be in season, the warmth of this pudding will hit the spot on any winter morning.
Check out the recipe below and then once you make it, leave a comment to let me know which fixin’s you added to yours!
1/2 cup frozen organic berries (in winter, if it’s spring or summer you can use fresh berries instead!)
1/2 cup coconut water + 5 tbsp coconut milk (from the bottom and top of a can of coconut milk)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons hazelnut or almond flour
3 tablespoons chia seeds
optional: 1 tablespoon hemp seeds, shredded coconut, cacao nibs, bee pollen
Heat up berries over medium low heat for about 10 minutes.
Add coconut water, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and honey and stir well until fairly uniform.
You might still have some chunks of berry, which is fine, but if you’d prefer it sans chunks then use an immersion blender to smoothify it.
Mix in nut flour until well integrated, then turn off the heat and stir in the chia seeds.
Wait about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until the chia seeds have turned the mixture into a pudding.
Add whatever fixings you like (hemp seeds, shredded coconut, cacao nibs, bee pollen…) and you’ve got yourself a delicious superfood-filled warm winter pudding!
I hope you enjoy this cold-weather smoothie-alternative!
Love, hugs, and purple tongues,
