Chia Pudding–Recipe of the Week

Recipe of the Week!

Chia Pudding . . . made with seeds?  What the heck are Chia seeds?

  •  a superfood of the Aztecs and Mayans
  • in the Mayan language chia is derivative of the word  meaning “strength”
  • warriors relied on it to boost energy and stamina (I’m feeling like a Warrior Goddess just writing this!)
  • distance runners believe that chia seeds increase endurance
  • a serving has 5 grams of carbs AND 5 grams of fiber!

 Simple Chia Pudding Ingredients 

  •  vegan almond milk, soy milk, cashew milk
  • chia seeds
  • banana, mango, strawberries (optional)
  • top with berries, hemp seeds, cacao nibs, maple syrup and any nut you like!

#veganRenee Cooking Tip:

I make my chia pudding in a mason jar so that I can shake it.  

Why shake it?  The seeds float to the top.  If you don’t shake it and simple stir, the seed float to the top resulting in a huge hunk of seeds . . . that won’t come apart.  Trust me on this!  I forgot to shake and I was so disappointed in my pudding that was too thin next to my “hunk o’chai seed” clump at the top.  

As an experiment (I mean recipe developer), when I made (prayerfully created) the green smoothie chia pudding I thought for sure it would be gross–but it wasn’t!  Yeah for not eating gross looking/tasting green food.  I also thought the second day–it would taste too green, but again it was really yummy.  FYI:  This is a great make ahead breakfast. 

How-to Make Perfect Chia Pudding!

Ok–how simple is this?

3 tablespoons chia seeds –> 1 cup of almond milk (or whatever you chose to use)

Seriously–why did I not make this before?
