Basic Chia Pudding (raw, paleo, gluten free, dairy free, nut free, vegan)
Makes 2 half-cup servings
This recipe is dedicated to my teammate @emmasoberglund whose mind was blown when she tried chia pudding last week. And it’ll blow your mind too! Because chia pudding is not only delicious, but nutritious as well. Chia seeds contain fiber, omega-3s, protein, and antioxidants. Plus, they look like little dinosaur eggs after being soaked, which is awesome!
4 Tbsp chia seeds
1 cup (2.5 dl) milk (regular, coconut, almond, oat milk…you can even use coconut water for a jelly-like pudding!)
1 tsp honey
Mix the chia seeds, milk, and honey well before pouring into a jar/covered bowl and putting in the fridge. The pudding should be set after a few hours, but leaving it overnight works best. Before eating you can top your pudding with fruit, nuts, seeds, granola, anything!
*Want your pudding thicker or thinner? Simply increase or decrease the amount of chia. Find your own perfect ratio. Experiment with different flavors: mix in a tablespoon of cocoa powder, a dash of cinnamon, a swirl of peanut butter. The possibilities are endless!
