This morning I made (and tried) Chia pudding for the first time. While yummy, the texture did take a bit of getting used to --it was reminiscent of a crunchy tapioca pudding. That is, a super healthy crunchy tapioca pudding; Chia seeds pack a powerful nutritional punch, especially considering how tiny the seeds are. 2 tablespoons of Chia seeds yields 11 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, 5 grams of Omega-3s fat, 18% calcium RDA (recommended daily allowance), 30% Manganese RDA, 30% Magnesium RDA, 27% Phosphorus RDA, zinc, Niacin, Potassium, Thiamine, Vitamin B2, and a surplus of antioxidants.

The other beauty of using Chia seeds for Chia pudding lies in its versatility --a quick search online yields dozens of different recipes. I didn't know where to start so I began with the basics:

Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup raw, unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey

Mix all ingredients in a container with a tight lid. Refrigerate overnight (or 6 hours). Done!

For added flavor, I topped mine with blackberries, dried cranberries, raw coconut flakes, and shelled hemp seeds.
