Everyone knows I love a good chia pudding. Not only is it yummy, but chia pudding is so healthy for you. There’s so many different options you can place on chia pudding, when you start off with a good base. There are endless topping options such as fruits, cacao nibs, nuts, that make chia pudding superfood heaven. It’s also the best when you make almond milk from scratch. I have a post showing you how to make your own almond milk here. I also make sure that my chia seeds are organic and gluten-free. I like Nutiva Organic Chia which you can get here or check out my my amazon shop located under ‘shop’ on the homepage.
If you want to add honey (omit if vegan) or coconut nectar as a nice drizzle, again there’s so many options to make this a perfect breakfast, snack or dessert!
In the pic above, I just added some mixed nut granola, pomegranate seeds, blueberries and bananas. I then sprinkled some organic cinnamon on top and it made such a hearty meal.
Chia pudding can be taken on the go to work, school, you name it. I found these perfect wide mouth 16 oz mason jars which makes it easier to scoop out with a spoon. Basically, I drizzle some honey (or drizzle coconut nectar if vegan or sprinkle maple sugar) on top before I head out the door, seal the lid, and then open when I am ready to eat. By placing the lid on top, you can prep ahead of time like the night before. The wide mouth mason jars are perfect for overnight oats as well.
- 2 cups Dairy-Free Milk
- 1/2 Cup Chia Seeds
- 1 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp Organic Maple Syrup
- 1. Take a large mixing bowl and place all items in it. Using a whisk, whisk the contents for one full minute and then allow it to sit for 5 minutes.
- 2. Repeat this process three times. Trust me (If you don't want runny soggy chia) whip it in the intervals for the fluffiest chia.
- 3. Divide up the contents in two mason jars or bowls, place desired toppings with a cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes. Or you can allow it to sit overnight and you have breakfast for the next two days.
- If you want enough for 4 mason jars. Just double the recipe. If you like it a tad bit sweeter, add in more syrup. However, since you will be placing contents on top, I would keep it simple. A tip is you can place nectar or honey (not vegan) on the top for an extra touch of sweetness.
