I want to share another very simple and delicious meal with you. The basic Chia Pudding is made with only three ingredients, and it still tastes pretty amazing.
It is my favorite choice for breakfast and for a midday snack. If you are still eating cereals or granola for breakfast, give this recipe a try and you might like it even more.
This recipe tastes best when it is made 2-3 hours in advance or overnight. The reason is that the chia seeds need some time to absorb the liquid, become softer, and develop a pudding-like consistency.
If you are in a rush and want to make a chia pudding and eat it right away, you may first need to grind the chia seeds into a fine powder in a dry blender or coffee maker and then use it for this recipe.
The best thing about this recipe (at least, for me) is that it doesn’t need cooking :). Also, this recipe can work with a variety of diets (vegan, vegetarian, Paleolithic, Mediterranean, and, probably, many others).
You will need:
- 1 cup of coconut or almond milk ( I prefer the unsweetened, raw, and homemade versions)
- 4 tsp of chia seeds, whole
- 1/4 cup of fresh berries of your choice (sliced strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries)
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Yield: 1 and 1/4 cup
Pour almond or coconut milk into a bowl. Mix in the chia seeds and cinnamon. Add berries. Mix everything gently and let sit for at least for 2 hours, or preferably overnight. Enjoy for breakfast or as a midday snack.
