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.
2 cups blueberries, washed
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.
