It took me a while to jump on the chia seed bandwagon.
That being said, I have a jar sitting in my cupboard just waiting to be used (like any true foodie, right?).
Here's a recipe I came up with. It's tasty, nourishing & keeps me full all morning long.
Coconut Chia Pudding
- 2 Tbsp chia seeds (where to buy)
- ½ cup coconut milk
- ¼ tsp. of vanilla
- dash of maple syrup (or honey)
Mix the first 3 ingredients in a bowl and place in fridge for at least an hour. When you’re ready to eat it, stir in the maple syrup and enjoy!
I won’t lie to you, for some reason the first bite doesn’t taste very good. But then (perhaps blame it on the magical-ness of the chia seeds) it becomes so delicious that you don’t want it to end!
Did you know that chia means 'strength'?
Chia seeds contain an abundance of nutrients including omega-3 fatty acids, carbs, protein, fiber, calcium & antioxidants.
This is a chill, fun breakfast to prepare the night before. You can prepare it in less than 5 minutes. Why not press play below and make it by the time this awesome song ends :) Then you can replay the song and have a little kitchen dance party.
