Breakfast Pudding

This is a flaxseed based pudding with several variations. I usually use nuts or seeds in addition to the flaxseeds. It gives lots of protein, energy and Omega 3 fatty acids to start the day. Using sprouted brown sesame seeds gives it more calcium than the equivalent volume of dairy milk puddings. I don’t like overweetening, and I don’t use much agave. But if you like it sweeter, you can use agave or more dried fruits or stevia.

Basic Ingredients

1 cup golden flax seeds soaked 4 hours or overnight in 2 cups water

1 1/2 c. chopped fresh fruit (try peaches and berries or mango or grapes and bananas or apples and plums-not melons)

1/2 cup dried fruits (try raisins, dates, figs, apricots, goji berries)

1 1/2 cups water

Basic Instructions

Blend well in Vitamix. Add up to 1/2 cup more water if necessary. The flax seeds should thicken it up. If not, add 1/2 more dry flax seeds, ground in a nut grinder, and let it thicken in the fridge overnight. Some of the following variations will also thicken it up.

High Protein Boost

Add 2 or more scoops, about 6 Tablespoons, or 1/4-1/2 cup of your choice protein powder. I like Sun Warrior sprouted brown rice protein powder which has some stevia. You might add 1/4-1/2 cup more raisins if it doesn’t have stevia. You can do this with or without the following other variations:

Other Variations

  1. Add 1/4-1/2 cup sunflower seeds or pecans or pumpkin seeds, soaked in water 4-8 hours, rinsed and drained OR 1/4-1/2 cup hazelnuts, almonds or walnuts soaked 8 hours or overnight, rinsed and drained.
  2. Add 1/2 cup carob powder to 1/2 the mix with 1/4 cup raisins.
  3. (This is my favorite–Chocolate Breakfast Pudding) Add 1/2-3/4 cup raw cacao powder and 1/4-1/2 cup more raisins.
  4. (This is another of my favorites–especially when I feel I need more calcium) Add 1 cup sprouted brown sesame seeds preblended with 3/4 cup water and 2 dates. See recipe for Sesame Milk to get the sesame seeds to the right stage of sprouting.

Enjoy your Good Morning, Healthy to You Breakfast Pudding!
