Today I wanted to share a snack/dessert that I made last night and which I think is terrific! It's super easy and can be made with things you probably already have in your house (if you're veggie, that is!). I skipped the vanilla beans because I didn't have any, but have no doubts they'd only make it tastier!!Also, the recipe I listed here is halved from what Kris wrote - otherwise it wouldn't have fit in my blender! Even half the recipe will be dessert for the rest of my week!
Vanilla Chia Tapioca Pudding, from Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr
3.5 cups milk (brazil nut, hemp seed, cashew...I used almond)
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract (without alcohol)
1/2 vanilla bean
1/6 cup agave nectar
small pinch of sea salt
1/2 cup chia seeds
Blend all the ingredients (minus the chia seeds) in a high-speed blender and pulse. Place the chia seeds in a large bowl and pour the mixture over them. Whisk. Continue whisking periodically so that the tapioca does not clump. My pudding took just under 1.5 hours to set, and I whisked a few times the first hour and that was it.
