Vanilla chia seed pudding



I'm wayy behind on the chia seed train and I don't know why it took so long to hop on!
I found this interesting recipe for vanilla chia seed pudding on Domesticate Me (link here) before grocery shopping, and thought I'd give it a go! Seemed simple and harmless enough and since I'm STILL sick, I will anxiously try any new super food to get well ASAP.

You will need:

  • 1/4cup + 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 cups vanilla almond milk (original recipes calls for unsweetened, but I used sweetened)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons quality maple syrup (I omitted this since my almond milk was already sweet!)
  • 1 pinch of kosher salt

Directions

  1. Place everything into a bowl and whisk to combine.
  2. Seal tightly with cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and stir occasionally to break up any clumps.
  3. Serve into small dishes and top with granola or fresh fruit

That's it! It turned out quite nice and was actually really filling..
Topped mine off with some fruit granola for a nice crunch. Have you ever made anything with chia seeds before?

  1. Ooh my drink recipe is really similar, just minus the waiting so its more drink than pudding. I'll definitely try this one ! =)
