Did you know that chia seeds have more antioxidants than blueberries? The lady at the health food store told me this...I googled it and she was right! Pretty impressive. They are also known to increase energy and help ward off hunger. Love that.
What you will need:
- 3/4 cup of raw chia seeds
- 2 cups of almond milk. If you want to make your pudding sweeter you can use vanilla almond milk.
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of unsweetened finely shredded organic coconut. If you want to make it sweeter use sweetened coconut.
Mix everything together. You will begin to notice the chia seeds taking on a more jelly like texture. Wait five minutes or so and mix again until you have a pudding like consistency.
That is it! Your done. Simplest recipe ever.
You can either enjoy it room temperature ( I prefer it this way) or let it chill in the fridge.
This is by far the easiest and healthiest little treat that I have ever made. It was light, not too sweet and the prefect after dinner treat!
So what did the husband think?...When he hesitantly took his first bite he looked at me and said, "Hmmmm NOT bad." He ended up eating a whole little bowl of it and even had a suggestion for next time (yeay a next time). He suggested I add pureed strawberries or blueberries. Great idea as a matter of fact.
