Ch Ch Ch Chia Pudding

Let me level with you here.

I will attempt healthy recipes more than most. I’m not talking about your average “yeah, that’s fresh looking” health. I’m talking those silly no sugar, no carbs, no seasoning, no fat recipes. Have you stopped reading already? I’m not going to make you make something boring and tasteless. I promise. But because I have attempted such crazy ridiculously boring meals, I can tell you that chia pudding WITH THE CORRECT ACCOMPANIMENTS can be an excellent and healthy breakfast. Don’t just eat chia pudding. That stuff is gross. Add to it some granola and fruit and you’ve got an amazing breakfast, I promise you.

This recipe is a variation of one from the Oh She Glows blog.

Start with your dairy free milk. I use almond milk. In a bowl whisk together your almond milk (3cups) with 1/2 cup of chia seeds and about 2 tbsp of maple syrup. I also like to add a 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract for some sweetness. So whisk them together and then let it sit out for about ten minutes. Go back to the mixture and whisk again. Allegedly this prevents clumping.

Pour your mixture into whatever containers you plan to store it in and let cool in the fridge for a minimum of three hours before consuming. I recommend letting it rest overnight.

When you’re ready scoop out some of your pudding and add granola or fruit to add some crunch.

Hassle level : like zero. It’s hard to put in less work
