Chia seeds are a super food, and are easy to incorporate into your diet. They are full of antioxidants, fiber, omega-3, and makes you stay full for a longer time than most other foods. They have been a huge health trend recently, and I gave in, adding it to my oatmeal, granola, and smoothies. It is great because it does not add much flavor, but is so healthy!
Ingredients for the pudding:
1/3 cup chia seeds
1 1/2 cups of any milk (I used coconut milk, predictable, am I?)
3 tbsp. agave
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tbsp. coconut shavings
1/2 tsp. cinnamon (or to taste)
1/4 tsp. nutmeg (or to taste)
Pour the milk into a large jar. Mix the chia seeds into the milk, eliminating any clumps. This is very important because it is not fun having clumps of dry chia seeds in your pudding! You can add in the other ingredients, mixing as you go.
When you are done, put a
bird on it lid on it and place it in the fridge. How easy! The thing is, you have to wait for the pudding to solidify. This takes 3 hours at the least, but it is worth it!
