Chia seeds are full of fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids. Enjoy this chia pudding as a breakfast or a snack! If you don't like the texture of the chia seeds when you make the pudding, you can put in a high power blender until smooth. It can be made in about 20 minutes, but if you want a thicker pudding it will need to sit for longer. #breakfast
3–4 Tablespoons chia seeds
1 cup almond milk, unsweetened coconut, or cashew milk
1/2 Tablespoon maple syrup, honey or sweetener of choice
1/4 Teaspoon vanilla (optional)
Toppings of choice: fresh berries or other fruit, coconut flakes, nut butter, cinnamon, other seeds...
In a medium bowl or mason jar, mix together chia seeds, milk, sweetener and vanilla, if using. A mason jar is great because you can put on the lid and shake.
Let the chia pudding mixture combine for 20-30 minutes. You can also shake or stir if you need to get rid of any clumps. I put my in the fridge to keep it cold. Or you can let it sit overnight. (Once it is set, it should be nice and thick. If not, just add more chia seeds, stir and refrigerate for another 20 minutes or so.
Serve the pudding with berries, fruit, coconut flakes, cinnamon, whatever you choose. Enjoy!
***Chia pudding can be stored for up to 5-7 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
