Meyer Lemon Chia Seed Pudding

March 15, 2011

Author Notes: I am calling this a pudding because I’m not sure what else to call it, but it’s nothing like a traditional lemon pudding. It’s got an almond base, so it’s high in protein, nutrients and fiber, the coconut oil adds a little healthy fat, the chia seeds thicken it a bit, and the raisins and maple syrup sweeten it up. Because the rest of the ingredients have very subtle flavors, I like how the taste of the lemon really shines through here. This recipe is adapted from a book called Ani's Raw Food Kitchen: Easy, Delectable Living Foods Recipes.WinnieAb
