Puddings are a great dessert for any time of the year, but flaxseed pudding is my favourite. I love flaxseeds in general. They have tons of health benefits. They make a unique tasting pudding with a different texture than chia seeds. If you’ve never tried flaxseeds before, I highly recommend giving this recipe a try!
Benefits of Flaxseeds
Flaxseeds are high in fiber, omega-fatty acids and antioxidants. They have even been shown to reduce cholesterol levels! Flaxseed pudding is a great way for kids who don’t like vegetables or fruits to get some more nutrients into their diet without having them taste it. Plus, flaxseed pudding is a healthy and delicious dessert that the whole family can enjoy.
How to Make the Flaxseed Pudding
You can use this method to make a thick, creamy consistency by adding more coconut milk and blending until it’s smooth. The ground dates will need time as well: grind them up first then let them sit for about an hour before blending in order for all of those precious nutrients from being released into your drink!
Once the pudding sets, top it off with whatever you like! I recommend granola or jam because they go great together but if those aren’t your thing then just use whatever is nearby.
I love adding apple butter or pumpkin butter as the leaves change color and fall approaches! I always add a little spice to my life with these flavorful additions.
- ¼ cup flaxseeds
- ½ cup almond milk (or any other kind of milk)
- ½ banana
- Optional: sweetener such as honey, maple syrup or agave nectar
Combine flaxseeds and milk in a small bowl. Let sit for about 20 minutes or until it becomes gelatinous.
Once flaxseed mixture has thickened, add banana and sweetener if using any. Stir well to combine. May also be enjoyed with your favorite fruit on top!
Flaxseed puddings are a great way to get those nutrients from flax into your diet. They have a unique flavor and texture, and they make a healthy and delicious dessert that the whole family can enjoy. Give this recipe a try today!
