Staying away from desserts because they are not very healthy? Now you need not. This super-healthy recipe will make you believe that desserts can be healthy too. The combination of luscious chia seeds and buttery cashew cream, this healthy dessert is a treat for your sweet tooth. Tossing in some sweet cherries adds colour to the dish and makes it absolutely drool worthy.
1Add ½ cup cherries, milk, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 2 tbsp sorghum syrup and ground cardamom in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
2Pour this mixture over the chia seeds and stir it well. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes and whisk again. Cover it and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Your pudding is ready.
3Simultaneously, soak the cashews in cold water for 3-4 hours. Now for making the cashew cream, blend the remaining cherries to a fine puree. Add the soaked cashews along with the cold water and blend at high speed to obtain a smooth paste-like consistency. Stir in the remaining sorghum syrup and vanilla extract and combine well.
4Just before serving, stir the pudding well, top it with the smooth cashew cream, throw in some chopped cherries as garnish and have your bowl of goodness.
