A filling & delicious, dairy free & sugar free breakfast or snack.
Ingredients
  • 150g of chosen nuts (my favourite are macadamia or cashews) almonds are popular too.
  • 1 vanilla bean (or 2 - 4 tsp of homemade vanilla bean paste)
  • 1000g filtered water
  • good pinch of salt
  • 2 Tbs coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp freshly grated nutmeg (optional)
  • 50g cacao nibs (optional)
  • 100g chia seeds
  • Fresh berries to serve
Instructions
  1. Soak nuts over night or for 6 hours, in filtered water drain & rinse the nuts.
  2. Place the nuts & vanilla bean into the TM bowl & chop for 30 secs on speed 10 (if you want a chocolate version you have the option to add your cacao nibs now too)
  3. Add the filtered water, coconut oil, salt, cinnamon & nutmeg, blitz for 1 - 1.30 on speed 9 (turning the dial up slowly from speed 1 - 9)
  4. Add the chia seeds & mix for 5 mins, 37 degrees, reverse, speed 3.5.
  5. The mixture will still be quite liquid, transfer into serving containers & place into the fridge to set for approx 1.5 - 2 hrs.
  6. To serve, sprinkle over fresh berries.
Notes
You might like to mix the cacao nibs in at the end instead to add a nice texture to the puddings.
You might like to add a few dates, if you prefer a sweeter pudding.
