Date Nut Pudding

  • 2 C. hot water
  • 1 C. Dates, pitted
  • 2/3 C. raw cashews
  • 2 Tbsp. arrowroot powder
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 1 tsp. Orange rind


Mix the 2 Tbsp. arrowroot powder with a small amount of water to dissolve it. Then pour it into a blender along with all the other ingredients. Blend on high for approximately 5 minutes. Pour mixture from the blender into a medium sized pot. Cook mixture (stir constantly) over low to medium heat for approximately 3-5 minutes. Eat either hot or cold. If you would like to eat it cold, pour it into a storage container and then store overnight or for at least an hour or two. Garnish with banana slices (or any other cut up fruit) and add milk if desired.

Recipe from Jessica Jackowski, Eastern Michigan Dietetic Student

This pudding is yummy and very soothing. It would look beautiful with a few fresh raspberries or pomegranate seeds sprinkled on top.
