Walnut, Almond & Chia Pudding - Choc Covered Cherries

Keeping busy trying new recipe ideas while waiting for our heat to return. Loss of heat is not due to Hurricane Sandy. However, due to all of the local devastation ere in NJ, it's been impossible to get anyone out to fix it. We're staying warm with a space heater and consider ourselves very lucky we have no serious damage. Meanwhile, my favorite comfort food in times of stress - CHIA PUDDING!  And while chia pudding is nothing new, using walnuts and almonds, instead of cashews was a welcome change, with delicious results.

Chia Soaking
I apologize I didn't write the recipe down when making this, but will try to list the ingredients used.

I started out with a chia gel. You can skip the soaking, but it's not as nutritious. Just mix the chia in the blender with water.  I had prepared chia gel and needed to use it. The measurements listed below are what I think I used...sorry! Honestly, just mix it all up and taste it...adjust sweetness and refrigerate. You'll love it!

Chia Gel
Walnut, Almond & Chia Pudding Ingredients:
Chia Gel
3 tablespoons chia 
3/4 cup water
(soak an hour to overnight)

Pudding Ingredients:
3/4 cup chia gel
3/4 cup nuts (almonds and walnuts)
2 1/2 Tablespoons cacao powder
pinch sea salt
1 Tablespoon cacao nibs
Medicine Flower Extracts - 2 drops each, Morello Cherry and Dark Chocolate (optional)
3 Tablespoons grade B maple syrup (or your fav sweetener)

Option - Skip the chia gel and just mix chia and water in blender,however, it's always better to soak chia. I used about 3 Tbsp chia and 3/4 cup water, letting it sit out all night.

In the blender, add mixed nuts and chia gel, cacao powder, cacao nibs, and a pinch of sea salt. (Add more water to blend, as needed)

Add 2 drops *Medicine Flower Morello Cherry extract and 2 drops Medicine Flower Dark Chocolate extract

Add 3-4 Tablespoons grade B maple syrup or your favorite liquid sweetener. Blend until creamy, adding water or almond milk to thin as needed.

Pour into goblets and refrigerate several hours. Garnish with chopped walnuts and/or cacao nibs.
