How many of you like chai? I am in LOVE with the creamy spicy goodness that is chai tea. What I'm NOT in love with is the over abundance of fat and heavy sleepy feeling I get with it. I'm also not in love with the weight gain and the sugar rush.
But the flavor and texture are phenomenal! What's a raw girl to do?
Chai Chia pudding of course! oh, hello creamy deliciousness!!
What I used:
1 1/2 C. almond milk.
1 c. water
spices: Cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg and allspice - I didn't measure these, I just threw them in the blender.
5 medjool dates (pitted!)
1/4c. chia seeds.
Blend 1st 5 ingredients in your high speed blender until mixed smooth. if it's too thick, add a little more water. I used about 1/2 the liquid (because I want the rest for tomorrow's breakfast)
pour into bowl and mix in chia seeds. Let stand until chia seeds are swelled up. It'll have a seedy tapioca feel to them. I currently have mine chilling out in the fridge!
