Chia Seed Pudding

This is really yummy and has the added advantages of being full of protein and Omega 3 fatty acids - both of which we need more of.  It’s delicious and filling, good for breakfast, a snack or dessert.

Here's What You'll Need 

2 cups of coconut milk (homemade or natural)

1/2 cup of chia seeds

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1/4 cup (or less) of maple syrup (or sub in any sweetener)

Optional: 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon powder

Fruit of your choice for topping

Instructions

Blended/Smooth Version

Place all ingredients into blender and blend on high for 1-2 minutes until completely smooth.

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. 

Continue with these final steps for either version

Pour mixture into a jar or glass container and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight so the mixture can set. 

When ready to serve, top with fruits and/or nuts of your choice. 

Enjoy!
