Chia pudding brings me back to when I was little and I would devour a big bowl of creamy tapioca pudding topped with whip cream and berries.
With this, the flavor combinations are endless! You can use any milk you love, cows, coconut, rice, almond or even chocolate milk! I love to add in different fruits or nuts or just about anything.
This is the perfect breakfast, quick snack or even dessert. I like to make a large batch and it lasts in my fridge for up to a week.
It literally takes 2 minutes to pull together and you won't regret it!
So wash them mitts, lets get cookin'.
Chia Seed Pudding
1/4 cup plus 1-2Tbsp chia seeds
1 cup milk of choice
1 tsp honey, brown sugar, molasses or sweetener of choice
Optional add ins: collagen powder, flax seeds, wheat germ, bee pollen, coconut oil etc
In a mason jar add all ingredients. Replace the lid and shake, shake, shake. Put it in fridge for 2 hours or overnight. After about 1 hour shake or stir and check for desired thickness. If you like it really thick like I do then add another teaspoon or so of seeds then mix and return to fridge.
After pudding has been chilled and you are ready to enjoy you can top or stir in anything your little heart desires but here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!
Cherries and cocoa powder
pumpkin puree and pecans
Any and all fruits
Grated apples and cinnamon
Coconut and almonds
*If the texture is too much for you don't give up just place all ingredients and even fruit in the blender and give it a whirl then place in fridge. With this method you may not need as many seeds so start with the 1/4 cup.
