Basic Chia Pudding
Chia seeds are super foods widely recognized for their high Omega-3, calcium and antioxidant content. When you are looking for a filling, nutritious and delicious treat, chia pudding has you covered. It is easy to make and fun to turn into a creative build-your-own parfait by adding toppings like fresh fruit, dried fruit or granolas.
- 3 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 1-3 tablespoons of coconut or agave nectar - to taste
- 1 vanilla bean or 1tsp of vanilla extract
- Raw Granola - like Sattva Juicery's RawNolas
- Fresh fruit
- Coconut flakes
- Pure maple syrup
- Nuts and seeds
- Whisk the almond milk, chia seeds, and sweetener together in a large bowl. Let sit for 5-10 minutes and then whisk again (this just helps prevent clumping).
- Cover and chill in the fridge for 2.5-3 hours, or overnight. It helps to stir the mixture every so often during this time, but don't worry if you can't.
- Stir well before serving. Portion into bowl(s) and add your desired toppings. Leftovers will keep in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.
- The thickness of the chia pudding will vary based on the kind of almond milk you use, so don’t worry if it looks a bit thick or thin when you first try it out. If your pudding is too thin you can add more chia seeds and let it sit for 30 minutes more; if it’s too thick, try adding a touch more almond milk.
