cookies-n-cream chia seed pudding

healthy chia seed pudding recipe

Lori and I have been slowly getting back into playing in the kitchen. We have so many recipes we want to share, just takes time to plan it out, take pictures, edit pictures, and write up the post. So we thank you all for still sticking around through all the craziness here from moving, remodeling, etc.

We did a lot of work around Lori’s new house yesterday that around 4 or so in the afternoon we had  a craving for something cool and refreshing. It has been hot here, so baking did not seem appealing.

Chia pudding to the rescue!

kefir chia seed pudding with coconut oil

You all know we love our chia seeds.


Other great cookies you could use in this recipe are:

unbaked chocolate cake

valentine heart cookie sandwich

no bake pecan cookies

no bake chocolate chip cookies

chocolate fudge balls

protein brownies

carob cookies

cashew brownie cookie

man, do we love our cookie-like desserts or what? haha

chia seed coconut pudding

I probably could have found a few more recipes to throw in there but decide that was enough 😉

I just kept finding some old recipes that I forgot about. Lori and I need to find a better way to organize our recipes, and we apologize we never finished our recipe page. The best way to find our recipes is use the tabs in our sidebar on the right – one called baked recipes and the other one is called raw food recipes. Or use the search bottom to help you find what you are looking for.

Many of you have asked us will our recipes still be available when we start the new blog. And to answer that is yes!! Pure2raw will still be here, so you can still access our recipes. We do plan on transferring some of them over to our new blog too, just need to decided on which ones we want to carry over.

I have been working hard on designing our new site, it is almost finished! Lori keeps nagging me to finish it so we can start blogging daily over there. My goal is sometime this week to finish it!

Twins Questions: Do you like cookies-n-cream? Have your ever tried coconut kefir before? If so, did you like it? Do you like kefir or yogurt better?

Lori likes ‘cookie dough’ better then cookies-n-cream, I would have to agree. But we can never turn down anything chocolate based! And we enjoy both kefir and yogurt equally.

till next time,

I prefer cookie dough to cookies and cream, but I do like cookies and cream. I haven’t tried kefir yet. I was tempted with the coconut kefir, but never made the plunge and I can only get it at certain stores here that are not really close. I need to give it a try though. I know it’s great for digestion! Looks great ladies!

mmm looks delish!

I guess I didn’t know you were starting a whole new blog?! And this pudding really does sound incredible. I was addicted to making doughy smoothies with oats for a while, and chopped unsweetened chocolate for a crunch. I don’t eat oats though anymore and have been trying to think of a substitute. Must try this out!

This looks great! Thanks for including the other recipes. I made your coconut lemon bars the other day, and they were the cats PJs! I don’t think I would have found the link if another blogger hadn’t included it on her site though, so I’m excited for you to have an updated recipe list!

This is such a good idea! Mine is sitting in the fridge now waiting for me :) I didn’t have any coconut milk kefir and wanted to make this so I just used 1/2 cup greek yogurt and 1/2 cup almond milk. I used your protein thin mints as the cookies too :) Wish I had some twin cakes cookies! Thanks

Lea June 26, 2012 at 2:54 pm

This looks soooo delicious! This recipe reminds me that it’s been far too long since I’ve had chia seeds, I need to pick some up soon!

I’ve never tried coconut kefir, but I’ve been wanting to, it looks tasty.

This looks sooo delicious! I haven’t tried coconut kefir yet, but this has totally inspired me to buy some! Another brilliant recipe, thanks ladies! : )

shannonmarie (rawdorable) June 27, 2012 at 7:05 am

Yum! I know I’ll be eating this soon :-)

Erin July 7, 2012 at 3:59 pm

I JUST made coconut kefir yesterday but with the granule-y starter.. I was so excited but it smells funny and is very tangy.. It looks fine so I’m not really sure if I did anything wrong. I’ve never had kefir before so is it supposed to be really tangy? I went ahead and made the pudding with it anyways. To be honest, the smell/taste makes me a little nauseous.

Lori and Michelle July 8, 2012 at 6:39 am

Erin, kefir is a sour, somewhat tangy taste. As it is “fermented”, most fermented things have a strong taste and smell to them.
