Vanilla Chia Pudding with Fresh Peach and Blueberry Puree
Farmer’s Market Makes: Day 3!
The fruit at the market was mouthwatering. There is nothing better than sweet, ripe peach dripping down your chin! While we could have eaten a whole bushel as is or made a simple crisp, or even a peach salsa, I decided to try something different. Wanting the fruit to be the star of the show, we started with a vanilla chia base and simply topped it with the fresh pureed blueberries and peaches. It was like dessert for breakfast. Though you can really have this anytime: morning, afternoon snack or dessert.
Creamy vanilla combined with the tart sweetness of the fruit! Mmmmmm – I love summer! Bon Appetit!
1 cup soy milk (or milk of choice)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract (or more to taste)
Optional: 1 very ripe banana, mashed
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 cup fresh (or frozen) fruit of choice
Optional: fresh mint leaves
Combine milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and mashed banana, if you want. Then add chia seeds. Mix, cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.
Meanwhile, use immersion blender to puree fruit.
To serve: layer chia, puree, chia and more puree! Top with mint and enjoy!
