Chia Seed Pudding

Oh, hello! Welcome back - I hope you enjoyed learning about whole grains on our last post. We're going to take a break from nutrition education and share this uber simple recipe with ya'll. You've previously seen me use and talk about the health benefits of chia seeds, like when I showcased my version of a 5 Ingredient Berry Sauce. When I heard my food friends talk about chia seed pudding, I was totally hooked and needed to give it a try. Here's what I love in particular about this recipe:

  • calls for only 5 ingredients
  • offers up 10 grams of fibre
  • source of calcium
  • source of protein
  • allows for customization
  • naturally gluten free
  • no cooking, just stirring

Prep time: 5 mins
Total time: 5 mins
Serves: 2 - 3

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup chia seeds (black or white)
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (dairy or dairy free)
  • 2 tbsp runny honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extra
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients into a bowl. Mix very, very, very well and cover with saran wrap.
  2. Place bowl into the fridge for thirty minutes. Stir again.
  3. Return back to the fridge for at least another 2 - 3 hours. The result is a thick pudding similar to rice pudding.
  4. Top with additional fruit if you wish. I love it with tart raspberries, mango or kiwi.
