Ever since I can remember, coffee was my “go to” each morning without fail. And, for years, it would be my ‘go to’ throughout the day – all day long… It was insane!
I knew that I couldn’t keep trying to stay afloat on coffee so I cut back to just once a day in the morning. BUT… that once a day coffee was so strong, no one would dare touch it! lol
So the day I finally stopped drinking coffee it was one of the best feelings ever. This came not long after I had begun my transition into the raw vegan lifestyle.
Not that I needed the caffeine anymore, I wanted to just have something that would give me a healthier caffeine boost. More so, out of habit than anything else. That is when I discovered chai tea and turned it into a healthy, nutritious pudding anyone would love!
This thick, creamy, savory, nourishing pudding will not only give you a caffeine boost, it will boost your energy and provide with an abundance of nutrients, vitamins with the chia seeds being an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. Much needed in the vegetarian/vegan lifestyles.
This pudding is also rich in antioxidants and serves as a good source for fiber, iron, calcium and potassium.
