Turmeric Chai Chia Pudding

Chia pudding is hard to photograph. It’s a lot like tapioca, a bit creepy if you don’t know what you are looking at.

I happen to love chia pudding. Yet, I understand it’s a textural thing that is “challenging” for some people. I feel that way about okra.

Chia pudding makes a great alternative to yogurt or oatmeal in the morning. You can eat it alone or serve it with fruit and nuts.

This chia pudding gets an anti-inflammatory boost from turmeric. I also added cardamom, cinnamon and cloves to give it a chai flavour. I also used my homemade cashew milk so it’s super creamy and rich.

Feel free to play with the sweetness level. I used maple syrup in mine, but you can use the sweetener of your choice. Give it a taste before it sets!
