Chia Seed Pudding

Coconut Milk Chia Seed Pudding.

This pudding not only tastes great , but it is also extremely easy to make. Chia seeds are full of nutrients, and are considered a superfood. These tiny seeds are packed with Omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants. When Chia seeds are put into liquid the small seeds expand and form a gel around them due to the soluble fiber that they contain. The gel texture adds a tapioca-like effect to the pudding. Chia seeds can be found at any local health food store. I have purchased them at both Trader Joes or Sprouts.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 Cups of Coconut milk ( I use So Delicious sugar-free vanilla, but any flavor will work)

1/3 cup of Chia Seeds

2 Tablespoons of Agave Syrup

1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

For toppings:

1/3 Cup Berries (Any type)

A handful of low-fat Granola ( I prefer Kind Maple Walnut Clusters with Chia & Quinoa)

Directions:

Mix coconut milk, agave and vanilla extract until smooth. Stir in Chia seeds , and continue stirring for a few minutes to be sure the seeds don’t clump together. Pour mixture into four glasses,and chill overnight, or for at least 4 hours. When finished chilling, top with Granola and berries.
