Yummy Chia Seed Pudding

Yummy Chia Seed Pudding

Chia is a seed that has been long known for its powerful nutritious content, high mineral content, and for being rich in omega-3s. For our first recipe we wanted to showcase something energy boosting, filling, and simple. 

Preparation time: about 1 hour

Serves 4

The Fuel:

  • ½ cup black chia seeds
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1 cup coconut milk 
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
  • 1 cup assorted raw nuts & dried fruits* 
  • Fresh local fruit (optional)

 

*We used pepitas, almonds, cashews, pistachios, fresh figs and fresh cherries. 

For those omitting raw nuts try your own variation with avocado and dried fruits. 

Directions:

In a blender, combine coconut milk, water, cinnamon, and vanilla and blend until smooth. For added vanilla flavor add the used pod to a bowl with your chia seeds while you blend your ingredients (remove before garnishing and serving). Add the chia seeds, whisking to combine, and refrigerate for 1 hour (whisk every 20 minutes to prevent clumping). 

Serve with nuts and fruit or refrigerate for up to 3 days in an airtight container.

I always add a dash of Himalayan sea salt and cinnamon right before serving. 

 

Enjoy!
