Easy Chia Seed Pudding

Good morning everyone!

I hope you all are having a lovely week! I know I am now that finals are finally over! YAY FOR SUMMER BREAK!!! Sorry for not making a post last Thursday (I was feeling the overwhelming stress of my finals~~~ T_____T;) But now that I am able to embrace the beauty and carefree joys of summer break, I will definitely be working on my blog more often. I have lots of exciting projects that I can't wait to share with you all in the near future! :) <3


After my mom brought chia seeds into the household (I swear, despite their fobbiness, her and her sisters are more knowledgable about the latest health craze than I am) and I learned about them for the first time, I experimented with different ways to eat them. I've placed them in smoothies, oatmeal, water, etc, but this is by far the best way to eat chia seeds. Luckily, it's also as easy as making cereal! ^____^


Easy Chia Seed Pudding






Prep time: Overnight


Ingredients:

2 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup unsweetened vanilla-flavored almond milk
+ Few pieces of nuts, fruit, chocolate, granola, coconut flakes, trail mix, or whatever you want! Have fun with it! :)

Directions:

1.) Pour chia seeds into a bowl or large cup.
2.) Pour in milk and refrigerate overnight. By morning, the chia seeds should have a gooey, pudding-like texture! So cool!*
3.) (Optional) Heat in microwave or small pot, if you want warm chia pudding.
4.) Decorate to your liking with pieces of nuts, fruit, chocolate, granola, trail mix, or whatever you want! The list is limitless. Have fun with it! :)

Enjoy hot or cold! :)


Makes 1 serving.

*Side note: If you're pudding comes out too thick, add more almond milk and stir until you get the consistency that you want. It's better to add more chia seeds the night before than less because you can easily adjust consistency with liquid. If you add too little chia seeds, you may end up with a very liquidy consistency. To fix this, add more chia seeds and wait about 5-30 minutes. The longer you wait, the gooier the chia seeds will be! :D


I love this recipe because you can change up the flavors with different toppings.  My favorite toppings are berries, chocolate chips, and almonds! :) It's also fun and easy for kids! Honestly, it's better than froyo in my opinion and a billion times better for you (you don't get that truckload of sugar that froyo has). Give it a shot and let me know what you like to put in your chia pudding! ^___^

  1. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, Chia seeds offer the highest volume of Omega-3, as well as addition fiber (soluble and insoluble) along with vitamins or perhaps minerals you don’t usually get whenever you take sea food oil. Chia seeds giving you long lasting energy during the day moving in deep, restful sleep during the night time. May read this article about Chia seeds at:
