So, about this chia seed pudding. It’s kinda ugly but don’t let that stop you. It’s sweet and salty and really hits all the craving spots. Check to see if your peanut butter has added salt, if not you can mix in a pinch of pink sea salt to the pudding to make it sweet and salty.

As for the dates, try to use soft medjool dates if you can. Dried out dates won’t add the same caramel flavour and the soft, chewy texture that medjool dates do.

Natural Sweetening with Dates

There are many different types of dates. I pretty much always use medjool dates in my recipes and for snacks at home. They’re easy to find, so soft they melt in your mouth and they have an amazing caramel flavour. I think they’re better than any candy you can buy! Plus, dates are high in fibre, vitamins and minerals, so they’re a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth without the need for refined sugar.

Despite being one of the sweetest fruits, high in both sugar and carbohydrates, dates are nutrient-dense and are full of minerals, vitamins, and health-benefiting phytonutrients. They are also very easily digested, making them great source of energy during or before workouts.

You can use chopped dates or homemade date paste in this recipe.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp (36 g) chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk or other plant milk of choice
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 3 chopped soft medjool or neglect dates (approx. 3040 g)
  • 2 tbsp (30 g) peanut butter

Instructions

  1. Add the almond milk to a bowl or container then add the chia seeds. Stir well until the chia seeds are mixed and no clumps remain.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes up to overnight.
  4. Enjoy as is or add your favourite toppings like a scoop of coconut yogurt, a few nuts or seeds and slices of banana or fresh berries.

Notes

I recommend using peanut butter with added salt for a sweet and salty chia seed pudding. If your peanut butter doesn’t contain salt, add a pinch of sea salt to the pudding along with the rest of the ingredients.
