Cinnamon and Fruit Chia Pudding
I was always a big fan of tapioca pudding. Loved the texture, the taste, the richness. I still love contrasts. And this pudding is full of them. I wanted an extra rich pudding so I used cashew cream instead of milk. Topped off with fruit and a dash of cinnamon, it hits the spot! Experiment with different fruit, I know I will be!

I have some raw cashews in my deep freezer, they have been there for about a year. Can I still use them in this recipe?

You would have to pull them out, defrost and see what condition they are in. Cheers!

Hi. Thank you so much for sharing! I made it a bit ago, and it was delicious! I didn’t know if I’d like it, so I split the ingredients in half, now I wish I hadn’t 🙁 Instead of agave, I used raw honey. And instead of cashew cream, I used cashew butter, and thinned it with almond milk. Again, delicious! Definitely will be making this again and again.

Thank god I found this recipe. I’m only on day 3 of eating raw and I was quickly starting to lose faith in it, but yesterday I found this recipe, last night I made the first part, and then I added the chia seeds before eating it for lunch. Best thing to touch my lips in days. Absolutely divine. Thank you.

I love how creamy this is. This is my first experience with cashew cream. Making my second batch now! I used the recommended 2 cups of cashews to make the cream. I ended up with enough for 2 recipes. It came out great. I have a Vitamix. Not sure if my blender expanded it more than expected. Either way it’s great.

I used kefir water for making the cream. I presume this is ok? Extra probiotics! 🙂
