Chia seed pudding has been a staple in many healthy diets for years now. It’s a very quick and easy recipe that contains a ton of health benefits. Most of you probably have these ingredients in your pantry right now. If you know us, we’re always looking for ways to incorporate healthy foods/snacks that are easy to whip up! As of late, we’ve been trying our best to incorporate as many plant-based options as we can. If you have any more suggestions, we’d love to know!
What you’ll need:
1 can of either full fat or light coconut milk – we buy ours from either Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods
1/2 cup chia seeds – Feel free to add more for a thicker consistency. Let’s be real, chia seeds can be pricey depending on where you shop. We like to buy ours at home goods. They have a selection of chia seeds that range from $5-12. Just make sure you check the expiration date.
1/2 TBSP vanilla extract
1 TBSP maple syrup
A few dashes of cinnamon
Combine all of the ingredients and mix well. Put the pudding in the fridge for at least 3 hours. You want to make sure all of the seeds are hydrated and fully expand. This is what’s going to give you the thick, pudding-like texture. We typically leave ours in the fridge overnight to get the best consistency.
