Chia pudding is ALL THE RAGE.
Chia seeds are an awesome superfood. They are naturally gluten- and grain-free, and contain calcium, antioxidants and omega-3’s. And they also have this crazy gel that emits from them when they’re soaked in liquid. So they’re an awesome alternative to yogurt.
I got this recipe from a friend at Bible study. I was telling her how my boot camp’s 10-day detox challenge included another recipe for homemade chia pudding, but I didn’t have all the ingredients. And our local health foods store was out of Chia Pods.
Here’s what she gave me, and it was so good (and suuuper easy) that I wanted to share!
3-ingredient chia pudding
1 1/2 cups coconut milk (or almond, soy, any dairy milk)
1/3 cup chia seeds
2 tbsp. sweetener (like agave, honey, Splenda or pureed dates)
Mix ingredients together and refrigerate overnight!
I’ll admit, having never eaten chia pudding before, it was a little weird and I wasn’t sure about the taste and texture. But I added cinnamon and it really helped. It’s a great alternative to sugary, runny yogurt!
