Chia Seed Pudding (Vegan and Greek inspired)

A little while back, I posted an item about chia seeds, how they're used in drinks, their health benefits, and about my general love for them.

I just came across this vegan chia seed pudding recipe on Veggie Wedgie and it looks amazing... I haven't tried it yet, but plan on giving it a go soon...thought you'd want to check it out!

Here's a pic from the link... yum:

Hi, everyone! Here's the recipe card you'll be receiving in the mail this week (so sorry it's late!)... I thought about what desserts I nostalgically relate to summertime. I spent many summers in Ocean City, MD, where my cousins and I would harass our parents into taking us to the boardwalk, and we'd go bananas on various amusement park rides, bumper-cars, and iron-on shops, and then inhale Fishers caramel popcorn, Thrasher's french fries, and my favorite of all, funnel cake, until we were happily, exhaustively ill.

Above is the recipe, as well as a vegan version to the right... it's a pretty solid recipe, and was as good, if not better (read: FRESHER), than the real thing. I also made a strawberry, plum, and lime compote to go along with it. I just threw the fruit (about a cup?) in a pan, a teaspoon of sugar, and the juice of a whole lime and cooked it down, adding some whole, uncooked bits of strawberries at the end, to add a chunkier texture. I grated a bit of lime zest in there as well. You can see the whole album of making both here.

Please enjoy! xo kat
