Have you tried Chia seeds yet? These tiny seeds may seem insignificant, but they are FULL of all kinds of nutritional goodness. They are high in Omegas 3&6, antioxidants, fiber, protein, and calcium, making them the perfect addition to your diet. My favorite way to eat chia is by making "chia pudding!" It's perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack (and can be made with vanilla OR chocolate!).

Vanilla Chia Pudding

  • 2 T. Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut, Almond, or Dairy Milk (or your other favorite milk substitute)
  • 1/2 t. Vanilla
  • Maple Syrup or Stevia, to taste

Whisk all ingredients together really well (it may take a minute or two to get all of the chia incorporated).


Chocolate Chia Pudding

  • 2 T. Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut, Almond or Dairy Milk
  • 1/2 t. Vanilla
  • 1-2 T. Cocoa Powder or 1 T Melted Dark Chocolate (you could also use chocolate syrup in a pinch)
  • Maple Syrup or Stevia, to taste

Mix all ingredients well. If using cocoa, it may take a couple minutes to get it well incorporated. You may also need to add up to 1 T. more liquid if it's really thick.

Pour pudding into a covered bowl and into the refrigerator. Let it sit until thickened. (preferably overnight, but it will also thicken in about an hour).

Now you can top your chia with all kinds of yummy toppings! My favorites are bananas, fresh or frozen raspberries, fresh strawberries, blueberries, and peaches.
