Stone Soup Vlog: Longan Chia Seed Pudding



In this monthly vlogging series, Stone Soup blogger Celestina Brunetti demonstrates recipes using ingredients featured in the most recent issue of Food & Nutrition Magazine. For April, Celestina shares with us how to make chia seed pudding using longans, a tropical, exotic tree fruit. 


Longan Chia Seed Pudding

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ pound fresh longans, peeled with seed and pulp removed (about ½ cup)
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds

Instructions

  1. Add almond milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and longans into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for 30 to 45 seconds, until sugar dissolves. You can also heat these ingredients in a small sauce pan over medium heat until simmering.
  2. Add chia seeds and stir. 
  3. Portion into small serving dishes and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes or until set.
