Pudding for breakfast! Alright, so this is a healthy pudding…but it is still quite tasty. I’d never eaten chia seed pudding before, but after seeing so many recipes for it floating around, decided to give it a try. It’s a different texture than I was expecting, but the creaminess of the pudding, the hint of vanilla, and the berries make it a wonderful and healthy start to the day!
1 cup non-dairy milk (almond, rice, or soy)
4 tablespoons chia seeds, black or white
1 1/2 tablespoons sweetener of choice (or organic pure cane sugar)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Mixed berries of choice (I used blueberries and blackberries)
In a mason jar or small bowl, stir together the milk, sugar, and vanilla. Sprinkle the chia seeds into the milk mixture and stir to combine. Cover the mixture and refrigerate overnight. Stir occasionally (don’t worry about waking up in the middle of the night to do this, just stir before bed and again in the morning). Top with berries and enjoy!
Add the milk, vanilla, and sugar to a mason jar. Stir to combine. Sprinkle in the chia seeds and stir to combine.
Put a lid on it! Place in the refrigerator overnight, stirring when you can. Enjoy!
