Chia Pudding

 

My new favorite thing: chia seeds. Loaded with antioxidants, these fiber-rich powerhouses provide a boatload of healthy vitamins and minerals in an easy-to-prepare little package. 

Chock-full of good for you Omega 3s and protein, enjoying a chia pudding snack in the morning is an excellent way to fuel you up for your day, and by keeping you feeling satiated for longer, is ideal for weight maintenance. I also enjoy it as a healthy dessert or a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. 

This chia pudding is such a cinch to whip up. It comes together in a couple of minutes, and it’s ready to go for the entire week. 

I love the creaminess of coconut milk for mine, but you can use any milk, alterno-milk or liquid you prefer. To keep this keto, just omit the sweetener and top with nuts for an extra boost of healthy fats and protein. 

I always have an assortment of dried fruits, nuts and seeds on hand, so I can mix up the toppings for new flavors every day to keep things interesting.

You can also use fresh berries and fruits, purees, nut butters and jams. Comment below with your favorite flavor combos. 

Thank you, chia seeds, for making mornings a bit easier and a whole lot tastier. 

Enjoy!

Chia Pudding

3 Tbsp Chia Seeds

1 Cup Liquid

Sweetener of choice (I use ½ Tbsp Maple Syrup)

¼ tsp vanilla (I use Mexican vanilla because it’s delicious)

Combine all ingredients and stir until seeds are evenly dispersed. Divide into containers (mason jars work wonderfully), top with a lid and refrigerate at least 30 minutes or overnight.

Keeps for up to a week in the refrigerator.
