Creamy Papaya Pudding |

Creamy Papaya Pudding

Raw, vegan, nutritious, easy, and delicious!

Gracious Living Creamy Papaya Pudding is an easy to digest, anti-inflammatory pudding that is great for breakfast, snack, or dessert. It offers protein, calcium, enzymes, essential fatty acids and fiber. More importantly, it is simple to make and delicious!

1 ripe banana
1-1.5 cups of soft papaya
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tbsp tahini
1-3 medjool dates (take pits out)
1 tsp cinnamon

Puree in blender or food processor until smooth and creamy. Pour into a bowl. Top with fresh, shaved coconut. Tastes best when chilled.

* Variations: try it with pittaya dragonfruit, kiwi, or raspberries instead of papaya or try it with coconut butter instead of tahini.

Known for her detoxifying and delicious raw, vegan, plant-powered recipe creations, Grace is passionate about the healing power of whole foods from the earth and their ability to increase prana and elevate consciousness.
