Raw blueberries host a plethora of nutritional value. They are one of the greatest antioxidants (which everybody needs to be eating a lot of), as well as high in Vitamin C and fiber. Macadamia nuts make this pudding rich and creamy but cashews are a good second choice. Omit the lemon zest if necessary but it definitely adds a great lift to the dish.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 4 cups
- 4 cups fresh blueberries (or 2 (10 ounce) packages frozen)
- 2 cups sliced banana
- 1/2 cup medjool dates or other soft dates
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 cup macadamia nuts, raw cashews or raw nut butter
Blend all of the ingredients together on high speed for at least 30 seconds or until a thick, creamy consistency is reached. If you don't have a high-speed blender and it is taking a while to get the consistency you want, you may wish to take a little break in between blending sessions so that the mixture doesn't get too hot.
Chill in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours or until firm. Enjoy topped with a few fresh berries!
