Easy Vanilla Chia Pudding
A chia pudding makes the perfect snack when combined with some fruit, some granola or nuts, and a big dollop of coconut yoghurt, or you can layer it with overnight oats to make a filling and delicious breakfast. I often use blueberries in mine to add colour, flavour and extra bulk, but you can leave it plain or use another frozen fruit instead. You could even add cacao powder to make a delicious chocolatey dessert Either way, a chia pudding is a fantastic way to get necessary protein and omega 3's into a healthy and balanced diet, and these tiny little seeds are definitely superfoods.
You will need:
3 tbsps chia seeds
3/4 cup almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Combine the chia seeds, almond milk and vanilla extract in a sealed container or jar and mix or shake well. Leave it in the fridge to gel and thicken for at least half an hour, then mix and shake again, returning it to the fridge for another hour but preferably overnight. When you're ready to eat it, just remove it from the fridge and enjoy topped with your favourite fruits and superfoods.
For a fruity alternative, reduce the almond milk to 1/4 a cup, and add 1/2 a cup frozen and blended berries to the chia seeds instead.
