Nectarine Chia Pudding
Sweet nectarine pureed layered with a chia seed pudding for a grab and go friendly dessert or snack.
Servings 4 people
- ½ cup chia seeds
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 1 ½ tablespoons honey
- 2 ripe nectarines
- ¼ teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon slivered almonds for garnish
Add the chia seeds to a bowl with the milk and honey. Whisk well.
Whisk again then pour into four individual serving glasses or jars. Divide evenly and leave a little space at the top of each glass/jar for the puree.
Cover the pudding and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil.
Cut an “X” on the bottom of each nectarine and place it into the saucepan. Blanch for 1 minute.
Remove the fruit with tongs. Transfer the nectarines to an ice bath or run under cold water until cool enough to handle.
Peel, pit, and cut the nectarines into large chunks.
Transfer to a food processor with the lemon zest. Process until smooth then refrigerate until you’re ready to serve the pudding.
Spoon the nectarine puree over each serving of pudding and garnish with slivered almonds.
