Loaded Chia Pudding
Chia seeds are a miracle superfood and I'm majorly obsessed with them. High in antioxidants, soluble fibre, Omega 3s... they're good for your brain, they help your body fight free radicals and help promote great digestion and elimination. In my opinion, they should be in EVERYONE's diet on a regular basis. And! The best thing about chia seeds is that you can make them into a tasty pudding with just three ingredients!
Chia pudding, guys. You need to get into it. It's been on regular rotation in my kitchen for YEARS now because it's a no-fail, always tasty, totally customizable recipe that fills me up and makes me feel like a health goddess. The way I look at chia pudding is like a blank slate for delicious toppings, and I always take full advantage. This recipe includes wild blueberries, bananas, pumpkin seeds and nut butter. It's a winner every time, but don't be afraid to get creative. Berries, mangoes, melons, seeds, nuts, coconut, raisins, almond butter, granola, cacao nibs... etc, etc, etc. You can't mess this up. It's always so good.
Loaded Chia Pudding (makes 2 servings)
3 cups unsweetened almond or coconut milk
3/4 cup chia seeds
3 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
frozen or fresh blueberries
1. Whisk the almond milk, chia seeds, and sweetener together in a large bowl. Let sit for 5-10 minutes and then whisk again (this helps prevent clumping).
2. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour, or overnight. It helps to stir the mixture every so often during this time, but don't worry if you can't.
3. Stir well before serving.
4. To serve, scoop 1.5 cups pudding into a bowl and top with desired amount of blueberries, banana and pumpkin seeds. Drizzle a tablespoon of almond butter on top. Enjoy!
