Raw Vegan Pecan Pie Chia Pudding

  1 rater(s)

Let’s talk about the delicious taste of this chia pudding, which is like enjoying a slice of homemade pie, but in a jar. The difference is that, unlike traditional pecan pie, this chia pudding does not contain excess sugars and fats. It won’t leave you feeling bloated or terrible about yourself after finishing a serving. In fact, the chia seeds will help replenish your energy stores, aid your fiber intake efforts, and help regulate blood sugar levels. How about that?

The raw vegan pecan pie chia pudding we are talking about is a creamy, rich, and indulgent breakfast, dessert, or filling snack. Made with chia seeds soaked in homemade almond milk, this is a simple chia pudding topping with a candied pecan topping. The chia mixture thickens overnight in the fridge, thickening into a pudding-like texture. This happens because the chia seeds absorb the liquid and create a gel-like texture, which is very similar to tapioca.

When you take a bite of this pecan pie chia pudding, you’ll taste that signature sweet and nutty flavor of pecan pie. The maple syrup provides a hint of warmth and depth, but you get a little spicy kick from the cinnamon. The flavor is reminiscent of a traditional pecan pie, but without the added sugar and processed or refined ingredients. This raw vegan version is lighter, fresher, and more nutritious, making it an ideal dessert option if you want a healthier indulgence.
