Chia Pudding Recipe

It’s National Chia day and we’re all for it. Chia seeds have become a staple in our diet and rightfully so- this superfood is full of fiber, protein, healthy fat, calcium and other vitamins and minerals. They’re versatile enough to add a protein kick to your breakfast bowls or as a meal on their own.
 
One of our favorite ways to enjoy chia seeds is in a chia pudding.  It’s an excellent breakfast meal and you can switch it up each time for some variety – plus, it’s so easy to make!  Are you ready for one of the simplest recipes in our arsenal?
 
It’s a 4:1 ratio of liquid to Chia seeds – so you can make as much as you’d like but we usually stick with:
• 2 cups of your favorite milk – dairy, almond, soy
• ½ cup chia seeds
 
Optional add-ons:
• ¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder (to taste)
• 2-3  scoops of your favorite protein powder (easy way to get in your collagen peptides!)
• ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 teaspoon of matcha powder
 
Mix your ingredients together until the viscosity thickens just slightly;  then separate out into smaller portioned containers, seal with a lid and refrigerate overnight (at least 4 hours).
 
The next day when you’re ready, grab one of your pudding cups and top with your favorite fruits, seeds or any other toppings you can think of!
 
We chose to top it with strawberries, blueberries,  banana, hemp seeds, coconut & almond shavings and more chia seeds.  You can add your fruit of choice, additional protein powder if you want or top with cacao or coconut shavings.  Honestly, the possibilities are endless.
