CHIA SEEDS PUDDING

CHIA SEEDS PUDDING

This is my favorite recipe and one of my favorite dessert. Chia seeds are packed full of important nutrients – they are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Enjoy 🙂

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup vanilla-flavored unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup plain coconut yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (preferably grade B), plus 4 teaspoons for serving
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • any kind of berries you prefer, or what is in season, ( like pomegranates )
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted

DIRECTIONS

In a medium bowl, gently whisk the almond milk, yogurt, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, the vanilla and 1/8 teaspoon salt until just blended. Whisk in the chia seeds; let stand 30 minutes. Stir to distribute the seeds if they have settled. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next day, in a medium bowl, toss the berries with the remaining 4 teaspoons maple syrup. Mix in the almonds.Spoon the pudding into 4 bowls or glasses; mound the berry mixture on top and serve.
