Blueberry Chia Pudding Recipe From Brendan Brazier

Thrive Foods: Breakfast Blueberry Chia Pudding

Professional triathlete Brendan Brazier is the creator of the Thrive Diet, a vegan, mostly raw nutritional plan geared toward athletes looking to improve both performance and recovery. Of all the recipes in Brendan's new book, Thrive Foods: 200 Plant-Based Recipes for Peak Health ($13), Brendan says that this blueberry chia pudding is one of his favorites.

I tried the blueberry chia pudding this morning and was pleasantly surprised. The mixture of chia, cashews, and dates creates a taste similar to breakfast grains. With blueberries, the pudding requires no additional sweetener and is the perfect breakfast fuel. Chia seeds are high in omega-3s, calcium, and fiber, and cashews will give you protein and a deliciously satisfying creaminess.

Make this chia pudding for yourself.

Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding

Ingredients

2 tablespoons chia seeds
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup cashews
2-3 fresh pitted dates, or dried pitted dates soaked in water overnight to rehydrate
Pinch of cinnamon
pinch of sea salt
Fresh or frozen blueberries

Directions

Since chia rapidly absorbs fluids and takes on gelatinous properties when soaked, it makes an ideal nutrient-dense pudding base.

Soak chia in water for 15 minutes. In a blender, combine with the rest of the ingredients, except the blueberries, and blend until smooth. Transfer to serving bowl and top with blueberries.
