Chia and Fruit Pudding

I call it pudding, it's a pudding consistency, but nothing like JELLO pudding, made with milk! ;-)

I make up the chia and fruit pudding using different organic frozen fruits. This batch was made with peaches and mangoes, but the last one I used blueberries and mangoes. You can use whatever your child likes, but I've read that it is good to rotate it some, as you can develop allergies to foods that you eat too often. That is why I played around with this, because Josh was eating WAY too much applesauce and it was beginning to give him re-flux.

I get my chia seeds here: at Raw Food World. You can go there to read all of the nutritional benefits of chia also. For 10% off of your oder, you can use the promo code HONEYMOON. I buy it often and keep them in a jar, since we use it pretty often.

First you put the organic fruit in the blender or food processor with about a 1/4 cup of water, add a little more as needed.

I then add another 3/4- 1 cup cup(s) of water to it, and 2 tablespoons of Agave nectar.

Add only 3/4 cup first stir in the chia and see if you think it needs more water. You could even use a fruit juice if you like! Put it into a bowl, and add 4 tablespoons of chia seeds and stir!

Now, you cover it and refrigerate for at least 8 hours, so that the chia seeds have ample time to soak up water. This is a very hydrating treat! It turns very gelatinous! Joshua really enjoys this.

Joshua tends to choke after about 5 bites of food, so I use this as a palate cleanser in between bites, it really helps!!

Thanks Venessa! Just add more Chia if you think it's too thin. I've been noticing, since I'm not good at measuring things when it's just for me, that it comes out different each time! ;-)

I keep meaning to add more to this category but haven't gotten around to it yet!
