The Luxurious (and Insanely Easy) Spoonable Treat
If you like rice or tapioca pudding, we can pretty much guarantee you will love its lighter cousin: This dish uses chia seeds to turn almond milk into a thick and rich custard. You simply combine the two ingredients along with a couple of flavorings (vanilla, maple syrup, cinnamon) and let the mixture sit for two hours (or overnight), stirring occasionally. A topping of diced persimmons and pomegranate seeds lends vibrant color and flavor.
