I've been hearing a lot about ch-ch-ch-chia seeds lately.
Full of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. So tiny but so good for you!
I was excited to experiment with chia seed pudding.
A no-cook pudding that tastes like dessert but is healthy enough for breakfast! I tried 3 different variations and this chocolate one was my favorite. I love it in the morning with some sliced bananas, strawberries and coconut on top.
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 cup vanilla coconut milk
2 Tbs. cocoa
2 Tbs. maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
dash of sea salt
Mix all together in a glass container or jar and refrigerate, covered, overnight (or at least a few hours).
A couple of things about chia seed pudding...
*You can make any kind you want as long as you use the ratio 1/4 cup chia seeds to 1 cup liquid. Try almond milk, regular milk, any sweetener and different flavors.
*This pudding is not as thick as regular pudding. I kept thinking it would get thicker but it didn't. It is thick enough to eat with a spoon.
