Garden to table recipe: Peach chia seed pudding

Peach Chia Seed Pudding

Ingredients

  • ½ cup chia seed
  • 2-3 fresh peaches (pitted, peeled and cut into large cubes) 
  • 1-2 cups almond milk (or your preferred milk substitute) 
  • 2 tbsp agave nectar (or honey fresh from the hive) 
  • ½ cup chopped almonds

Directions

Set aside about half of a cup of your chopped peaches and place the remainder in a large measuring cup. You should have less than two cups of peaches. Pour milk into the cup to fill in around the peaches until it reaches the two cup mark. Pour milk and peaches into blender. Add one additional cup of almond milk to the blender. Add agave nectar (or honey) and blend until smooth. 

Transfer your blend to a tupperware container or jar and add chia seed. Shake or stir until the seeds are evenly dispersed. Dice the peaches you set aside earlier. Add to your mixture. Stir to mix, cover and refrigerate overnight. Garnish with chopped almonds (and maybe even a sprig of mint from the garden) on top and enjoy!

What's sweet as pie but healthy as a peach? Peach chia seed pudding. That's what! Yeah, yeah. Sounds kind of strange and not as good as pie but don't knock it until you've tried it. We guarantee you're going to love this healthy and energizing treat! 

But first, we need to let you know that we've got some fresh peaches headed your way! Although unexpected weather devastated peach season in much of the South wiping about 80 percent of one of our favorite summer fruits, our friends from the Carolina Peach Truck are here to save the day!
