Recipe: Almond Chia Pudding

If you’ve stepped foot in a Whole Foods, or Trader Joes, or any visited a website using the words “Clean” or “eating” in the last year you may have heard of Chia seeds. They are like very tiny sunflower seeds, but they are full of Omega 3s, Fiber, and Protein, and make a great addition to smoothies, yogurt, and a number of other foods. But my favorite thing to do with them is making a pudding. When they are added to milks or yogurt and are allowed to sit the seeds expand, and can become a tapioca like consistency (hence “pudding”). With some fruit and honey, it’s a delicious and healthy snack! Here is a recipe with some pics of how to make some of your own.

Ingredients:

2 cups of Almond (or Coconut, depending on which you like better) Milk

1/2 cup of Chia seedsimage_2

Let sit for at least 2 hours (for best results, overnight is best). And you will have the product above! You can eat it alone, or I think its best to make a parfait type snack with fruit and honey
