Finding snacks that hit the spot but also tasty and easy to prepare can be a challenge –
Thankfully not for us! Give this Chia pudding recipe a try. It’s creamy, satisfying and loaded with fiber, Omega-3s and protein. It’s also Paleo, Keto, Gluten-Free and Vegan friendly!
3 to 4 tablespoons of chia seeds
1 cup unsweetened coconut, cashew or almond milk
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup (or sweetener of your choice)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
TOP WITH ONE OF:
- Fresh Berries
- Dried Fruit
- In a bowl or mason jar, mix together the chia seeds, milk, maple syrup and vanilla.
- Once the chia pudding mixture is well-combined, cover and put the mixture in the fridge to “set” for 1-2 hours, or overnight.
The chia pudding should not have a liquid consistency. It should be thick and rich. If it’s not thick enough, just add more chia seeds (½ a tsp. of chia at a time) and stir; let sit for another 30 minutes or so. When ready to eat, sprinkle with toppings of choice.
Chia pudding can be stored for up to 5-7 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
