3hrs to overnight
♥ 2 tbs Chia seeds (Tesco £1)
♥ 100mls Milk or alternative milk i.e. Rice milk (which I used)
♥ A generous drop of maple syrup or honey
♥ Fruit or cream on top
1. Pour the milk into a glass then stir in the chia seeds and maple syrup.
2. Place glass into the fridge for 10mins then take out and stir to make sure no clumps form. Put it back into the fridge and leave for 3hrs or overnight.
(It helps if you could stir your mixture a couple of times but don’t worry if you can’t!)
3. Then take out of the fridge and stir then add the toppings of your choice.
The chia seed pudding is great for a healthy breakfast or dessert. You can adjust the measurements to suit your taste. If the pudding is too thick you can add a dash of milk or if it’s to liquidity you can add more chia seeds and let it sit for longer in the fridge.
Benefits of chia seeds:
– Packed in with nutrients
– High in Omega-3 fatty acids
– Gluten free
– Good for digestion
– Helps with weight loss
– Vegan friendly
I came across this pudding during my interests of being healthier and possibly turning vegan. When I tried it, plain with no toppings, it tasted very bland. After adding my special touches, I thought it really brought life into the pudding making it sweet and soft.
I hope you like the pudding too. Leave me a comment if you have any questions, if you tried it out and liked it or to request another recipe (:
