Chia Vanilla Pudding aka "Raw Rice Pudding"

I Love rice pudding.  I mean, I LOVE it.  I have recipes on this blog for a more typical (cooked) rice pudding but using coconut milk, muscavado or rapadura (unprocessed) sugar, and brown rice.  But this takes it to a new level. Of course, it is not rice pudding, but you do feel great after you eat it, and....IS good...

1/4cup / 145gr raw almonds
3/4cup / 177ml water (or as needed)
1/4cup / 174gr pitted dates
2 TBL / 21gr chia seeds
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 1/2 TBL / 23gr raisins

Blend the almonds, water and dates together until smooth and creamy.  You are looking for a thick, sweet nut milk kind of mixture.

Add the chia seeds, cinnamon, and raisons. place in refridgerator for an hour or so so the chia seeds can absorb the liquid.

Adjust flavors according to taste. Sprinkle with your chosen toppings like nuts, more raisins & cinnamon, berries, coconut, chopped apples, etc. And enjoy.

this recipe seems to be best served when cold. A tip from it's creator, Rawsome Vegan Baking
