A traditional chia seed pudding is made with about 1/3 cup of chia seeds, 1 1/2 cups of milk, a sweetener, and fruit. I love to make it with fresh almond milk or coconut milk and I think it’s fun to layer it with yogurt. The possibilities are endless when it comes to making chia seed pudding, just use your imagination!
I know the texture takes a little getting used to, but I’ve got a simple trick to get around that. To create a more creamy pudding texture, blend all the ingredients together in blender or Vitamix before letting it set in the fridge.
Why are eat chia seeds healthy? Chia seeds are well known for containing healthy omega 3 fats. They also provide a healthy dose of protein, fiber, and important minerals like calcium, magnesium, and iron. These amazing little seeds also have great absorptive power! They can absorb up to ten times their weight in water, helping you to stay full and satisfied.
