Don't think healthy = Dessert? Think, again!

This is a BUDINO (boo-deen-oh). --->

It's like a weird looking pudding. But, looks can be deceiving. This budino is sweet and loaded with powerful chia seeds and protein! I had my first budino at LYFE Kitchen in Memphis, Tennessee. The flavor and texture were delightfully unique and vegan, so I decided to make it at home! 

Pictured are two different budinos in process: Banana Coconut Budino made with lite coconut milk and my spin on the recipe using the new offering from Naked® Nutmilk, which comes in Peachy Almond and Berry Almond, both of which are Non-GMO verified and responsibly harvested and packaged!


1 can of Coconut Milk -OR- 1 container of Naked® Nutmilk
1/3 cup of Chia Seeds (add more or less to suit your desired texture, next time)
2 Tablespoons Agave or Honey (my opinion is Naked® doesn't need it)
optional: 1-2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Coconut flakes

  • Mix the above ingredients
  • Place in airtight (lidded) container in fridge overnight. The next day, the chia should have gelled the mixture into the pudding or budino! 
  • Garnish with complimentary fruit and nuts and spices!
Let your creative juices flow with taste combos! Let me know how your budino turned out!

Go #playwithyourfood!
