I am fashionably late to the chia seed pudding party. I really do not care for pudding all that much. Pistachio pudding, however, I LOVE. But I really really wanted to try chia seed pudding. Those glorious seeds delivering all of their fiber and omega-3 goodness in dessert form? How could you say NO to that?
Voila. Pistachios + chia seeds = swooooon
Pistachio Chia Seed Pudding
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup raw sugar
2 cups vanilla unsweetened almond milk
2/3 cup shelled unsalted pistachios, finely ground (coffee grinder works great- or a food processor)
1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
3/4 cup chia seeds
In a small saucepan, heat water to a boil. Add sugar, stirring constantly to dissolve. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add in ground pistachios and remove from heat.
Pour sugar pistachio mixture into a glass container, then whisk in remaining ingredients. Cover container and refrigerate overnight, stirring every hour for the first three hours.
To serve, scoop pudding into serving glasses and top with additional crushed pistachios, if desired.
