Berries are extremely healthy, containing phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals that deeply nourish our bodies and help ward off chronic disease. Eating a cup of berries a day has been shown to strengthen the immune system and aid in longevity.
I’ve adapted this recipe from Amy Chaplin’s lovely book Whole Food Cooking Every Day:
What’s so great about Chia Seeds?
- they’re nature’s way of providing us with healthy fats, in particular, omega 3 essential fatty acids
- high in protein
- loaded with antioxidants
- nutrient-dense and calorie poor – which is excellent for weight-loss
How do I make it?
Berry Chia Pudding is super simple to whip up.
- Soak the cashews in boiling water to soften them up a little. If you’re very short on time you can skip this step
- Heat the frozen berries and OJ for about 5-10 minutes
- Blitz in a high-speed blender along with the drained and rinsed cashews, then add the chia seeds and stir well. Allow to chill in the fridge for an hour or so
- That’s it!
What equipment do I need to make this Beautiful Berry Chia Pudding?
A high-speed blender such as a Vitamix makes all the difference!
