  1. Put all the ingredients in a blender (high-powered is best but a normal blender will work ok too).
  2. Blend on high for 30 seconds. A high-powered blender will be done. For other blenders, scrape the sides and bottom and blend another 30 seconds on high. Repeat as necessary until the seeds are tiny.
  3. Pour into individual serving bowls or a pint-sized mason jar.
  4. Refrigerate 3-4 hours until set.


* I think the blended version is better than whole seed pudding because of the texture, but also because you don’t have to re-stir the pudding cups after an hour of refrigeration. Give me an easy button any day!

* Variations: Use fruit by omitting the cocoa (use the code STEWARDSHIP for 10% off at that site!) and adding 1/2 cup of blueberries or strawberries. Try a peanut butter version, which I layered with chocolate like a parfait, by omitting the cocoa and adding 2-4 Tbs. of natural peanut butter.

* My kids love the chocolate version, hands down. For some reason, only the toddler loved the blueberry version, which is quite tasty IMO.

* The pudding is best on the first or second day and quickly declines in quality after that.
