Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds are incredibly healthy for your body. Posted below is a great recipe to help you absorb some of the benefits!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups coconut milk (homemade or natural)
  • 1/2 cup Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (or less) maple syrup (or sub any sweetener)
  • Optional: 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder

Instructions

  1. For Blended/Smooth Version: Place all ingredients in blender and blend on high for 1-2 minutes until completely smooth
  2. For Whole Chia Seed Version: Blend all ingredients except chia seeds in a blender until smooth (including any added flavors, fruits or chocolate). Whisk in chia seeds
  3. Pour mixture into a jar or glass container and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight to let gel. Stir or whisk a few times within the first hour to help it gel evenly. I prefer to make this at night to have ready for a fast breakfast the next day. It is also great to make in the morning for a delicious pre-made dessert at night
