homemade granola, and whatever fresh or dried fruit you have on hand.
Hemp Chia Pudding
Serves 2- 3
1 3/4 cups unsweetened almond milk
2 medjool dates, pitted
2- 3 tablespoons raw, shelled hemp seeds
2- 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
pinch sea salt
1/3 cup raw chia seeds
In a food processor or blender, add all ingredients except the chia seeds and blend until smooth (or as smooth as you can get it in whatever device you're using). Pour the milk mixture into a large bowl (use the same vessel that you're going to store it in) and mix in the chia seeds, making sure they stay separate and do not clump. Let the mixture sit for about 10- 15 minutes and stir again, breaking up any clumps with a fork, if they've formed. At this time, you may either transfer the mixture to the refrigerator to set up, or leave it at room temperature and move it to the fridge in another half hour or so.
The pudding will last in the fridge for at least a week. Add more almond milk as needed if mixture becomes too thick. Enjoy chilled or at room temperature with whatever toppings you like!
