E-Caf Pudding is a snack invented by Erin Cafaro, two-time Olympic gold medalist. You can eat it on it’s own, spread it on squares of dark chocolate, or heat up some wild blueberries and make a fantastic dessert. Your palate may have to adjust for the absence of added sweeteners. If you need, you can ease the adjustment with a light drizzle of raw honey.
Make in advance
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 1 can full-fat coconut milk
- shredded coconut
- chopped nuts
- protein powder
Shake the coconut milk and pour it into a bowl or storage container. Mix in the Chia Seeds and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
- small pile of frozen wild blueberries
- 1/2-inch piece of fresh ginger (or 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder)
- small splash of apple cider vinegar
- vanilla powder
- cocoa or chocolate powder
- fresh mint
- shaved or grated dark chocolate
A ginger grater (shown in the picture) is the easiest way to juice the ginger. You can also chop finely and squeeze through cheese cloth. Another option is to finely grate or chop and add the whole ginger, not just the juice (if you do this scrape the peel with a spoon off before chopping.) A third option is to use 1/4 teaspoon of ginger powder.
Place the blueberries and ginger in a skillet over low heat and add the ginger and vinegar. Heat until warm and serve with E-Caf pudding and any desired toppings.
