Chia Seed Pudding

For those of you who are jumping on the chia seed bandwagon, I’ve got a simple and quick chia seed pudding recipe that is perfect for breakfast or a snack during the day.

Chia Seed Pudding

What the heck is chia seed anyway?

Three years ago I joined a triathlon team, and since then I’ve learned a whole lot about nutrition and crazy things, like chia seed. Chia seed was a staple for the Aztecs and Mayans years ago and is said to have numerous health benefits.

Benefits include:

  • High in fiber
  • A great source of omega-3
  • Weight loss – the gelatinous substance will keep you fuller longer
  • Hydration for athletes

 

Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • Fruit (your choice!) 1/2cup of strawberries/ bananas/ mangoes/ blueberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • A small pinches of cinnamon
  • A dash of honey

If you don’t have almond milk, use water as a substitute. Fruit and a bit of honey make all the difference in the world!

Directions

  1. Put your chia seeds in a bowl. Pour the almond milk and vanilla into the bowl. Include the two pinches of cinnamon.
  2.  Place the bowl in your fridge for at least 3-4 hours, or overnight.
  3. In the morning, add more almond milk or water if the mixture is too thick.
  4. Top the chia seed with your fruit of choice.
  5. Serve chilled.
