Pommy paleo pudding

BT Toronto | posted Wednesday, Dec 28th, 2016

Pomegranates, blueberries, apples, chia, hemp hearts and lecithin are all beneficial for bowel cleansing. Chia seeds are a rich source of soluble fibre, which helps the body sweep away waste, toxins, and minimizes your risk of developing constipation. This recipe is also gluten-, soy-, dairy-, egg-, and nut-free

Makes: 4–6 servings. Keeps for up to 4 days in the fridge.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups wild blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup filtered water, just off the boil if using frozen berries
  • 1 cup organic pomegranate or berry juice
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp Hemp Hearts
  • optional boosters
  • 2 tsp sunflower lecithin powder
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 5 drops liquid stevia (if you like it sweeter)
  • 1 tbsp NutraVeg Omega 3 Oil
  • 1 cup fresh pomegranate seeds (about 1/2 pomegranate), or other fresh fruit if pomegranate is unavailable
  • 2 Tbsp raw pumpkin seeds

Method:

  1. Place the blueberries in a large bowl. If using frozen blueberries, pour boiling water over them, mixing gently to thaw; otherwise, add cold or room-temperature water.
  2. Add the juice, applesauce, chia seeds and Hemp Hearts to the berries, and stir well.
  3. Mix in any of the boosters if desired, and place in the refrigerator to set overnight.
  4. In the morning, let it return to room temperature on the counter and serve topped with fresh fruit and pumpkin seeds.
