these days, it feels like people can’t say enough good things about chia seeds. they’re the superfood that everyone is talking about and i wanted to give them a try. we made this very healthy dessert in the studio by mixing them with vanilla almond breeze and letting them sit overnight. the slightly sweet quality of the almond breeze mixed perfectly with the tartness of the guava shaved ice on top. definitely a crowd pleaser and no need to feel guilty eating it…


i’m also wondering if i can ask you a quick favor? we’re always trying to create interesting and relevant content for you guys and it would be super helpful if you’d be willing to take this survey. it should only take you about 5 minutes and it will help us continue to improve the site! and, leave us a comment below letting us know you took the survey and we’ll be picking one reader to win a $100 visa gift card to say thank you.

makes 6 servings

2/3 cup chia seeds
• 2 cups Almond Breeze Almondmilk Vanilla
• 2 cups guava juice
• 1 cup water
• 1 ounce package freeze dried berries
• 1 package strawberries as garnish

Chia pudding dessert: In a large pitcher mix 2 cups guava juice with 1 cup of water. Place into 3 ice trays and freeze for about 3-4 hours or until frozen depending on your freezer. In a medium sized container, place 2/3 cups chia seeds with 2 cups almond breeze. Stir until all chia seeds have been evenly displaced, about 2-3 minutes. Place in the refrigerator to chill for at least an hour or can be kept overnight.

Fill up six glasses half way with the almond breeze chia pudding. Using an ice crushing machine, (we used this snowball machine from williams sonoma but a high powered blender will do the trick!) place the 3 trays worth of guava ice cubes and crush the ice. Using a spoon evenly place the crushed ice over the chia pudding. Garnish with crushed freeze dried berries and strawberries.

    I use alpro soy milk with vanilla (which is what I find here in cyprus) and leave with chia overnight in the fridge.
    Then I put in the blender along with a teaspoon of drinking chocolate and some frozen berries. Result is like an ice cream!
    Of course I also tried it with peanut butter and banana, or peanut butter and cocoa, etc, and al is yummy!
