Lemon Cashew Cream Chia Pudding

This recipe turned out just as I imagined it. I am a lover of chia pudding but always craved the thicker consistency of “traditional” pudding. I achieved exactly what I have been craving all along. A thick, rich, flavorful pudding that is guilt free, gluten free, dairy free and most of all GOOD!!!

1 cup cashew pieces, soaked in 2 cups water at least 2 hours, strained
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Zest of 1 lemon (I used a Meyer Lemon)
Juice of one lemon
4 tablespoons chia seeds

– In a high power blender … Blend cashews, maples syrup, almond milk and vanilla until perfectly smooth.

– Pour mixture into bowl and whisk in the zest, lemon juice and chia seeds.

– Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least a couple of hours.
