Almond Chia Pudding

IMG_4112

Chia seeds are known for their many excellent health benefits. Just two tablespoons pack lots of fiber, Omega 3 fatty acids and tons of antioxidants and minerals. This tasty pudding is a great way to incorporate some of those wonderful qualities into your diet. Super quick and simple to prepare, this recipe comes out a bit like tapioca. Smooth and creamy with a nice texture and subtle sweet flavor. Also, I recommend making your own almond milk if you have a high-powered blender. The ability to control how creamy you make the milk is a great advantage. And, none of those pesky preservatives! I add an additional ¼ cup of almonds to the milk for extra creaminess. Injoy!

Ingredients:

2 cups raw almond milk

6 Tbls. whole chia seeds

1-2 Tbls. maple syrup

Instructions: 

1. Place almond milk, chia seeds and maple syrup into a glass jar, cover, and shake.

2. Place in the refrigerator overnight, or for about 8 hours.

3. Serve with fresh fruit, toasted coconut and hemp seeds.
