I know it can be difficult coming up with pudding recipes that taste good but can either have a little bit of nutrition in them or avoid common allergens.
Below are two such recipes:
1. A chocolate chia seed pudding
2. An eggless tapioca pudding
I hope you enjoy them!
1. CHOCOLATE CHIA SEED PUDDING RECIPE
3 cups of milk (I use almond but you can easily substitute in coconut, hemp, soy, etc.)
2/3 cup of chia seeds
4 tbs of cocoa powder (you can adjust based upon how much chocolate flavor you like)
2 tbs of sugar crystals (this can be varied based upon how sweet you like it)
Mix together (they don't like to mix well initially).
You can either cover it and let it sit in the fridge overnight (mixing it a few times when going into the fridge to grab something else) or you can warm it on the stove for about 10-15 minutes (Keep it medium to medium low heat so get the seeds to become gelatinous). Cool for 2 hours (this will allow time for it to thicken up some more) and enjoy!
Makes about 3 1/2 cups all together containing a total of:
51 g of sugar, 45 g fiber, 20 g protein, 7.5 g fat (4.5 g MUFA, 1.5 g PUFA)
I divided this into 4 servings, with each serving having a total of: 12.75 g of sugar, 11.25 g of fiber, 5 g of protein, 1.88 g fat
2. EGGLESS TAPIOCA PUDDING
1/3 cup of Bob's Red Mill Small Tapioca Pearls. Soak the tapioca pearls in 3/4 cup of water for 1/2 hour before doing the rest of the recipe.
2 cups of milk (I use almond but you can easily substitute in coconut, hemp, soy, etc.)
1/4 cup sugar crystals
Combine 2 tbs corn starch mixed separately into 2 tbs of water and keep off to the side
Combine the water-soaked tapioca, 2 cups milk, and 1/4 cup of sugar crystals and bring to a boil while stirring constantly (or at least more consistently once it gets closer to boiling).
Once boiling, add the cornstarch/water mixture while mixing constantly.
Cook for 1-2 minutes longer while stirring constantly.
Shut off heat.
Add 1 tsp of vanilla
You can add spices for flavoring too (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, etc)
Makes about 3 cups all together containing a total of:
62 g sugar, 68 g of other carbs, 2 g protein, 5 g fats (3 g MUFA, 1 g PUFA)
I divided this into 3 servings, with each serving having a total of: 20.7 g of sugar, 22.7 g of other carbs, 0.7 g of protein, 1.7 g fat
I also like mixing the two together!
