1/4 cup chia seeds
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
1-2 tablespoons of your choice of sweetener (e.g., honey, maple syrup, agave nectar, or a sugar substitute for a low-carb option)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
Fresh berries (e.g., strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)
Chopped nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts)
Drizzle of honey or maple syrup
Cinnamon or cocoa powder for flavor
1. Mix Ingredients:
In a mixing bowl, combine the chia seeds, unsweetened almond milk (or your choice of milk), sweetener, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
Stir well to make sure all ingredients are fully combined.
2. Let It Rest:
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours or overnight. The chia seeds will absorb the liquid and create a pudding-like texture.
3. Check and Stir:
After the initial rest period, give the pudding a good stir to break up any clumps. If it's too thick, you can add a bit more milk to reach your desired consistency.
4. Add Toppings:
Serve the chia seed pudding in individual bowls or jars.
Top with your favorite toppings like fresh berries, banana slices, chopped nuts, shredded coconut, or a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.
Enjoy your homemade chia seed pudding immediately, or store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to a few days.
Feel free to customize your chia seed pudding with various flavors and toppings to suit your taste preferences. It's a versatile and nutritious dessert or breakfast option that's loaded with fiber and healthy fats.
