1/1 Photo of Vegan Chia Kheer (Indian Pudding Dessert)
Kheer is my favorite Indian dessert, but it’s not a good choice for those of us who are lactose intolerant or vegan, so I created a vegan version of Kheer. It requires no cooking! If you are watching blood sugar levels, please omit raisins and use a low-GI sweetener such as coconut nectar or stevia to sweeten the pudding.
