Blueberry Nice Cream on Raspberry Chia Pudding

Blueberry Nice Cream on Raspberry Chia Pudding
If you follow the recipes on Organic Granny (you can do that on this site itself, or by joining the group on Facebook called Organic Granny Veggie Recipes) you will know that I have a longstanding relationship with chia seeds.  These high protein, high omega3 tiny seeds just happen to be the base for many of my dessert recipes-- either as a primary content or as a binder-- and some other recipes as well.  I sometimes make up something called Chia Gel-- basically, chia seeds gelled in water-- and keep it on hand in a mason jar in the fridge.  I often use the gel as a base for the puddings.  You can find out more about the chia gel and how to use it HERE.  Find more recipes at the base of this recipe post.

RASPBERRY CHIA PUDDING
INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 Cups Organic Chia Gel (make ahead of time, up to 24 hours)
  • 1/4 Cup Organic Raspberry Jam or Jelly (vegan is preferred - or blend and sweeten ripe fresh or frozen berries)
  • 1 Cup Non-dairy Milk (such as Almond, Coconut, Hemp, etc.)
  • 2 T. Maple Syrup or other preferred sweetener (optional)

BLUEBERRY NICE CREAM
INGREDIENTS:

  • 3-4 Very Ripe Organic Bananas, peeled, chunked and frozen in a baggie for 24 hours
  • 3/4 Cup Frozen Organic Blueberries
PUT THE PUDDING TOGETHER:
  • Stir together the Chia Gel, the Non-dairy Milk, the Sweetener, and the Jam or blended raspberries.  
  • Spoon into 1/2 pint mason jars (or old-fashioned glasses)
  • Put into fridge again to set for a couple of hours, or during the time you make the Nice Cream
PUTTING THE NICE CREAM & CHIA PUDD TOGETHER: 
  • AT SERVING TIME: Put frozen banana chunks and blueberries together into a high-speed blender like Vitamix, and process until smooth.
  • Scoop a 1/4 of the Nice Cream over each of the 4 chia puddings 
  • Sprinkle a few hemp seeds on each NiceCream as a garnish (optional, but yummy)
  • Serve immediately!
This is a lovely dessert that can be eaten by itself anytime and as breakfast!
