Happy Monday! This post comes a bit late, and it's not even a nut butter! But it does contain nuts. And is maaaaaybe the best breakfast ever. So. I had to share.
If you've ever been put off by the weird, Jello texture of chia pudding, don't worry--once it gets all blended up, it's ridiculously smooth and creamy! The inspiration came from a recipe I linked to a few weeks ago, Smooth & Creamy Chia Pudding from Cookie and Kate. Add some sweet potato and spice and it's basically (healthy) dessert for breakfast!
Sweet Potato Pie Chia Pudding
Makes 1 generous serving
- 1 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup coconut water (or water)
- 100g sweet potato (about 1/2 small sweet potato)
- 1/8 cup raw cashew pieces
- 1/8 cup raw broken walnuts
- 1/2 large fresh date (use more if subbing water for coconut water)
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- pinch of salt
Add chia seeds to bowl and pour over coconut water. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Peel and cube sweet potato. Boil until soft and rinse under cold water.
Add gelled chia liquid, sweet potato, nuts, date, spice, and salt to blender and blend until smooth. Top as you fancy and enjoy!.
