Simple Chia Seed Pudding

Hello! I am here to deliver a beautiful, healthy, and extremely easy recipe that can be enjoyed for breakfast, as a snack, or even a delicious night-time treat. This takes less than 5 minutes to make, which is wonderful because I know it can sometimes be difficult to get in a healthy meal when caught up in your every day on the go routine. I like to slow down my days, take time to breathe and connect with myself but I will say it’s been a challenge while taking on six classes. However, it is not impossible it simply requires a few adjustments in your routine and some patience and understanding with yourself. It brings me so much joy that I can help bring a little ease to a stressful day by helping others recognize that eating a well-balanced diet is not as hard as you one may have imagined. Our body and minds are connected, eating living plant foods that fuel the body on a cellular level helps energize and awaken the mind. Don’t believe me? Give it a try!

Why Chia?

Loaded with antioxidants – happy cells may help protect your body from certain diseases

High in fiber – better digestion

Great source of protein – a great alternative to get in extra protein on a plant-based diet

High in Omega-3 Fatty Acids – protection against heart disease

Good for bone health – good source of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and protein which are all important for healthy bones

May help reduce inflammation – chronic inflammation can sometimes relate to an increased risk of cancer and heart disease. A well balanced, healthy, low-inflammation diet can help reduce chronic inflammation

The Recipe

Simple Chia Seed Pudding

Ingredients

¼ cup chia seeds

1 cup almond milk (or your favorite plant milk)

1 tsp maple syrup

¼ tsp cinnamon

¼ cup black berries

¼ cup blue berries

Directions

1. In a container or mason jar, pour in the chia maple syrup, cinnamon, and chia seeds.

2. Add the plant milk and either put a lid on the jar and shake it up really well or you can mix it up well with a spoon. I find that it distributes nice and evenly by shaking it up with the lid on.

3. In a microwavable bowl, put in the black berries and the blue berries and heat for one minute in the microwave.

4. Remove the berries and them up with a fork.

5. You may either top the pudding with the berries and then refrigerate or keep them separate and top at a later time when you decide to eat the pudding. The melted berries turn into a nice jam type texture.

6. Refrigerate for 4-6 hours or overnight.

Enjoy!

Note: If you are not a fan of microwaving you can also melt the berries in a pan on the stovetop. If your looking for something a little sweeter try adding some coconut sugar to the mix.
