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!

Good Summer Morning Chia Pudding

Here is a fast and easy Chia Pudding that is perfect for breakfast (or as dessert, etc etc etc).  Chia pudd fans will know what I mean...  .                               . The Recipe is pretty simple.  You can vary it as you like, but this combination is a winner at our home and I think we will continue to use this as a standard for a simple breakfast pudding.

Scoop pudding into small bowls or small j

3 Quick Delicious Refreshing Carrot Salads

 These 3 carrot salads are all vegan, but not all familiar. It only goes to show that carrots have a life of their own in the Veggie World. When I go scouting for a delectable and easy-to-make vegan recipe, I like to think I vet the best on the Internet. I check out various social venues-- Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest-- and google for the top-pagers as well. Then I read over the selection and toss the ones that sound a little too traditional or fussy.  1.  Viral TikTok Carrot Salad with Asian Flare (with Instagram's Stephanie Manzinali that.veganbabe) *that.veganbabe* demonstrates how to put this ribbon salad together in a flash. You will find other great salads that include carrots among her repertoire as well. Go HERE to the post. 2. Spicy Carrot Salad on Youtube with Everyday Gourmet  This looks very tangy and adventuresome for people who like a little zing in their summertime meals. Carrots are sweet, and some honey is also added to the recipe (I guess you could us

The Power of Flowers

Fragrant Flowers on our Morning Walk In my more youthful days of gardening I was all about organic food plants.  As I get older I have begun to enjoy planting and caring for flowers and herbs more. That is not to say that I do not have organic food gardening as a priority!  This year my husband has stepped into the gap in a big way (the 'gap' being my spending less time in the garden).  He has a 5-gallon pail of compost tea burbling away at all times, another pail of comfrey tea brewing under the grape arbor, and is experimenting with strewing agricultural lime in any patch of ground my eyes have fallen upon.   We have just put in  Saskatoon berry bushes, a few Sea Buckthorns, and 3 Sour Cherry trees (or bushes or whatever they will be) as well as the usual assortment of greens (kale, chard, collards, cilantro, parsley, romaine, etc.) and beans and a vast forest of little tomato plants, many donated by kind friends and neighbors.   We also have a square foot herb
