Chia seeds are one of the best plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acids. They are high in protein and fibre which help keep you full longer aiding in weightloss… Which is why I decided to make this. This recipe is great for busy parents or if you dont have a lot of time in the morning. Just set it the night before and in the morning its easy to take with you on the go.
Easy No-bake Chia Seed Pudding
?1 cup almond milk(or dairy free milk of choice)
?1/4 cup chia seeds
?2 Tbsp maple syrup(or sweetener of choice)
?1 tsp ground nutmeg
?1 tsp ground cinnamon
?1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Mix all together and pour into a mason jar. It will be liquidy at first but once you leave it in the fridge a few hours (preferably over night) the chia will expand soaking up most of the milk leaving a pudding like consistency.
Once I took it out the fridge the next day I simply blended some frozen mango in a nutribullet with a tiny bit of water and poured it on top. Then I topped it with a few cocao nibs, shredded coconut and pumpkin seeds.
Feel free to modify the recipe to your liking. Originally I used 1 TBSP of maple syrup but it wasnt sweet enough for me so I added one more. You can also play with the milk to chia ratio for a thinner or thicker pudding. Play with the toppings, add blueberries and lime zest or diced mangos with some peaches. Whatever you can think of the possibilities are endles with this delicious yet healthy breakfast idea. Hope you enjoy. Leave a comment below and tell me how you like it.
