I LOVE anything  key lime. Ice cream, pie, cookies, yum yum yum.  I wanted to make a healthy dessert to satisfy my key lime craving so I created this Chia Seed pudding.  It’s dairy free, made from healthy natural ingredients, and is packed full of nutrients.  Chia seeds are a superfood that provide a ton of fibre, protein, and minerals.  The avocado adds healthy fat and additional fibre making this pudding a perfectly balanced treat for anytime of the day!!

Key lime chia pudding recipe

Chia Pudding

1 cup almond milk
lime zest from 1 lime
4 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp maple syrup or honey
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Avocado lime creme

lime juice and zest from 1 lime
1 avocado
1 tbsp agave
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions:

1. Whisk together all ingredients for the chia pudding in a bowl. Whisk for a couple of minutes until the seeds start to form a gel like consistency. The more you whisk the more your seed will get evenly spread out and you’ll avoid getting lumps in your pudding.

2. When you see that the pudding starts to thicken and the seeds are evenly spread out. Put the bowl in the fridge to set for about 30 minutes.

3. Make the avocado creme while you wait. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

4. When the chia pudding is ready, split it up to two glass jars or one bigger jar. Top with the avocado creme and sprinkle with some coconut flakes.

5. Enjoy!!
