Description

a healthy chia pudding that tastes just like a key lime pie!


Scale

Ingredients

chia pudding

key-lime pudding layer

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked in hot water for 1 hour then drained
  • 6 tbsp coconut milk (full-fat from a can)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup key-lime juice (or lime juice)
  • zest of 2 key-limes (or 1 regular lime)
  • 1/2 tsp matcha powder for colour (optional)

Instructions

  1. Mix the chia seeds, almond milk, key lime zest, maple syrup, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Whisk for 30 seconds until everything is well combined.
  2. Place in the fridge and allow to firm up for 2 hours or overnight.
  3. Add the cashews to a blender or food processor with the coconut milk, maple syrup, lime juice, lime zest, and matcha powder. Blend until completely smooth. (You may need to scrape down the sides a few times as you blend.) 
  4. Spoon the chia pudding evenly into 4 little jars. Pour the lime mousse mixture on top of the chia pudding.
  5. Place in the fridge and let set for 2 hours before eating.


Notes

Let your chia pudding sit for at least 2 hours so it really absorbs the liquid and becomes a nice pudding-like texture. 

If you can’t find key limes you can use regular limes in this recipe, though I highly recommend key limes for their delicious flavour! 

You can use either a blender, food processor magic bullet to make the key lime mousse. Anything that will blend it up. 

Store these chia puddings covered in the fridge for up to a week.
