This month’s recipe video is Chia Seed Pudding, a delicious and quick dessert that only needs a few ingredients and can be made in 5 minutes.
Have you heard of chia seeds? They are an amazing superfood that is gaining popularity at an alarming rate. They are loaded with fiber and expand in your stomach to keep you full because they absorb water, which you will see in this recipe as they expand in the fridge to make your pudding nice and thick. They also contain protein, antioxidants, and omega, which is a brain food so is perfect to load up on at this time of year by finals.
Also, studies have shown that eating chia seed slows down our bodies’ conversion of carbohydrate calories into simple sugars which can help regulate blog sugar levels which can help with sugar cravings.
If you like tapioca pudding, you will love this!
so what do you need?
it’s so simple…
-nut milk (I used almond)
-stevia (or sweetener of your choice)
optional add-ins: cinnamon, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, banana, nuts, cocoa nibs, tahini, almond bitter, hemp seeds, ground flax meal etc.
All you do is mix all the the ingredients in the bowl still really well, then pour over the chia seeds in the other bowl then mix well again and toss in the fridge and wait as long as you can (anticipation & hunger usually gets the best of me)! The longer you leave the chia seeds stay sitting still in the bowl in the fridge the more they will grow, expand, and thicken. Leave it in the bowl sitting still in the fridge for at least fifteen minutes, but you can leave it in there for hours and even overnight would be best to really thicken it up.
It’s a super healthy, super filling, superfood dessert!
Enjoy & let me know what you think!
