Creamy Strawberry Chocolate Chia Pudding

My friend Lucy calls chia seeds "amazing little bladders of water". Chia seeds swell up in liquids and become gelatinous, like tapioca pearls. They are a wonderful source of calcium and omega 3 fatty acids, and will keep you full for a long time while drawing out bad cholesterol out of your body!

Ingredients
- 1/2 cup raw cashews
- 1 - 1 1/2 cups water
- 3 T agave nectar
- 1 inch vanilla bean
- 1/2 - 1 cup diced strawberries
- 1 t lucuma powder
- 1 T raw cacao
- 4 T chia seeds

Orange Blossom Scented Chia Pudding

For orange blossom lovers! If you are a fan of this delicate Middle Eastern ingredient, you will love this chia pudding.

The inspiration for this recipe is the traditional Lebanese "Muhallabia" pudding, usually made with milk and rice powder.

- 1 T orange blossom water, available at any Middle Eastern food store

Not-Tella Chia Pudding

Chia seeds, the same seeds used to grow chia pets but for human consumption, are very high in calcium as well as omega 3 fatty acids. They are very versatile, and can be used to make crackers, puddings, refreshing drinks (such as Chia Fresca, popular in Mexico), and more . They can also be sprinkled on salads and desserts for added crunch. When soaked, they will become gelatinous, and the pudding will be similar to tapioca pudding.

Ingredients (serves 4)
- 1/2 cup to 1 cup chia seeds, depending on how thick you like your puddings
- ½ cup raw cacao powder
