For the Crust Lovers

If you're one of those people that picks the crust off of the edge of the pie pan, this recipe is for you.

I will warn, this isn't your typical graham cracker crust; this crust is loaded with a key nutrient, omega 3 fatty acids.

Omega 3 Agents

Walnuts

Chia Seed

One Crust Loaded with Many Good Things

I've been reading up on omega 3 fatty acids, and I learned that walnuts and chia seeds are great sources for this important nutrient.


If you haven't heard yet, omega 3s are considered a good fat, and it's a good idea to try and squeeze good fats into our diet whenever we can.

Why?

They are complex nutrients that give us long-lasting energy.


Some other plant-based foods that consist a high number of good fats are avocado, coconut oil, nuts, seeds, and even tofu.


Instant Pudding with only 3 Ingredients

  • Silken Tofu
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Coffee Syrup

I've been using silken tofu a lot the more I try to maintain a vegan diet, and I am so amazed at how easy it is to work with.

The flavor of silken tofu to some is very strong, but I promise, it's easy to work with. This is the second time I've made a sweet treat with silken tofu, and I find that adding some sweetness helps a lot.

      This is an interesting recipe. I've never seen anything like it before. I love mocha desserts, so I think I would enjoy your pudding pies. Thanks for sharing the instructions.
