BLUEBERRY PUDDING

I am a member of Dr. Fuhrman’s Member Center and as a member I receive daily recipes in the mail.  Dr. Fuhrman practices Nutritional Medicine and is a great resource for any of you wishing to learn more about the connection between nutrition and health.  I refer to his books as resources often.

A few weeks back I received a recipe for Berry “Yogurt” that looked so simple and refreshing (and mostly raw).  Somehow it has taken me weeks to get around to making this treat…a treat that literally took two minutes to make from start to finish.

Blueberries have been outrageously good lately (I can’t seem to get enough!) which motivated me to make this berry pudding with blueberries exclusively.  I decided that I wanted to go for more of a pudding than a yogurt and thus increased the flax meal to 4 Tbs. rather than 2Tbs.  The results were great!  Since my blueberries were sweet on their own, I did not add anything other than the dates.  If you tend to have a big sweet tooth, you may want to keep some stevia on hand in case you want the pudding to be sweeter.  I recommend blending it as written below and tasting it prior to adding any additional sweetener.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups blueberries, washed

¾ cups So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk

4 Tbs. ground flax meal (I used Bob’s Red Mill)

4 Medjool dates, pitted

Place all ingredients in your Vitamix (or blender) and blend for approximately 1 minute.

Chill before serving.

  1. I just made this, and OMG, it’s incredible! So easy, too! I have a whole garden full of blueberries and a fridge filled with So Delicious Coconut Milk. Flax and medjool dates are also staples in my house, but I never put them all together to make pudding. Thanks so much for the delectable idea!

  2. This looks amazing, the colour is incredible, my mouth is actually watering!

  3. Ooh looks amazing. Also, am becoming a big fan of Dr. Fuhrman. Thanks for referencing him.

    I’d like to make this but am wondering if it is a thick pudding. I recently had a very thick blueberry pudding at a vegan restaurant that was incredible and I’m searching for a recipe that sounds as though it could match that delicious pudding. Would you say that this is thick and creamy?
