Chia Pudding

IMG_3359It’s been so long since I’ve written a post, or even thought of writing a post that I actually forgot how to sign into my WordPress account.  After some sleuth work, I finally figured it out.  Fewf.  Nice to see you all – and I would love to say I’m back for good, but life is quite busy, so we’ll see how it goes.

The changing season always inspires me to find new recipes that fit the mood, and this season I have become particularly inspired.  Although I am mortified that summer is coming to a bitter end, I am finding comfort in some of the recipes I’m digging up and the changes of colour at the local market.  I’ve also made a conscious effort to up my fruit and vegetable intake as I head into marathon season; to eat more whole foods as opposed to processed options, which brings me to this recipe.  The alternative to this meal for me would be a ready-made vegan yogurt and berries bought from the local market, but this is just so much better.  If you are a tapioca fan, this is going to rock your world.  Great for breakfast, a snack, or even dessert, Chia pudding is one of my favourite things in the whole wide world.

The recipe is so easy, you are going to want to eat this on a daily basis because it literally takes a second to make.  Here we go.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups unsweetened nut milk
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1-3 tablespoons of pure maple syrup, to taste

IMG_3346Directions:

  1. Whisk the nut milk, chia seeds, and sweetener together in a large bowl. Let sit for 5-10 minutes and then whisk again (this just helps prevent clumping).IMG_3354
  2. Cover and chill in the fridge overnight.
  3. Stir well before serving. Keep in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.

I often have this for breakfast with fresh fruit and sprinkled with granola. You can top it with pretty much anything you like.  Another one of my favourite things to do is to blend some sort of fruit or berry with the nut milk before adding the chia seeds, and you end up with a flavoured variation – SO GOOD.IMG_3356
