Chia seed pudding is a healthful, superfood dish that you’d never realize was nutritious! Full of fiber, antioxidants, protein, calcium, and other minerals, chia seeds secrete a gelatinous substance when soaked in liquid, resulting in a thick, creamy, guilt-free pudding. All it takes are a few basic ingredients and 5 minutes of time to prepare this delectable treat. Get creative with your add-ins and toppings for the ultimate healthy breakfast or dessert!
2-1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
1/2 cup chia seeds
3 to 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup, honey, or agave
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
Pinch sea salt
Step 1: Add Ingredients to a Jar
Pour the almond milk into a jar, or sealable container, followed by the chia seeds, pure maple syrup, vanilla extract, and sea salt.
Step 2: Seal the Jar and Shake
Secure the lid firmly on the jar and shake well until the contents are well combined.
Step 3: Chill
Refrigerate the pudding overnight, or until very thick, at least 4 hours. If possible, stir once or twice throughout the chilling process.
Step 4: Serve!
Once the pudding is thick, taste it for flavor and add sweetener to taste. Serve with your choice of fresh fruit, nuts, and/or granola.
