Chia pudding is a healthy staple recipe in my kitchen for so many reasons. The first reason being that it’s ridiculously simple and the perfect make-ahead food. Need a quick breakfast on-the-go tomorrow morning? Chia pudding! The second reason is it’s health benefits–chia seeds are a superfood incredibly high in essential omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and have great amounts of protein and fiber for being such a little seed! The third reason being that there are so many versions of chia pudding you can make, the possibilities are literally endless. Chocolate, vanilla, banana, avocado, berry, you name it: chia seeds can adapt to it.
This particular recipe is a foundational version that is a perfect go-to that fits what ever mood you’re in. It’s simple but extremely tasty, we promise. Here’s how you make it:
1/4 cup chia seeds
3/4 cup unsweetened hemp milk (or almond)
1/4 cup coconut water
1 tsp light agave
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1. Mix all of the ingredients in a container, make sure it’s blended by using a fork then shake vigorously
2. Leave in refrigerator 6-12 hours (overnight is best)
3. Serve with fresh fruit and/or chopped nuts, or on it’s own
This recipe yields up to two servings.
