HowTo Make Chia Pudding



Chia seed pudding is a delicious and nutritious snack, suitable for anyone with any dietary restriction. Chia is a super food, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fibre and protein. These dry seeds slowly soak up the milk to create a pudding-like substance, taking on a similar texture to tapioca. If you are sensitive to interesting textures, this might not be the best fit for you. I like making this pudding at nighttime, and eating it in the morning for breakfast. I purchased this huge bag of chia seeds at Costco for about $15. These seeds are also a great addition to smoothies. This pudding is completely customizable and has a truly addictive texture. I like my pudding with regular 1% milk, cinnamon and honey. You can use any type of nut, coconut, or dairy milk for this recipe. Topping it off with bananas is the absolute best, but here, I finished it off with some granola and dried apricots. See how to re-create this yummy cup of goodness in the steps below.



Ingredients: 
- 1 cup of nut, coconut or dairy milk
- 3 tablespoons of chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1/2 a teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- honey or maple syrup to taste
Steps:
1. Mix the chia into the milk
2. Add everything else
3. Stir then refrigerate
4. Stir some more every hour
Four hours later, chia pudding will have formed. 
If it’s too thick, mix in more liquid, if it’s too thin, add more seeds.
Top it off with your favourite fruit and enjoy!

Next time you're in a breakfast rut, try making some chia pudding! Well, the night before.
