Chia Seed Pudding

Ch-ch-ch-ch-chia!

Chia seeds are tiny  black seeds that were a staple food for the Aztecs and Mayans and actually were named after the Mayan word for “strength” and with a long list of health benefits, it’s not hard to understand how they got their name.

Chia seeds are considered a superfood because they are packed with nutrients despite the small amount of calories per serving. A 1 oz serving is only 138 calories and it contains 11 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein.

The tiny seeds are also packed with antioxidants, Omega-3 fatty acids and calcium.

For a delicious and nutritious treat make this super easy chia pudding.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup chia seeds
1 cup coconut milk
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons unsweetened shredded coconut
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Directions:
1. Mix all of the ingredients into a mason jar or small cup.
2. Cover and leave in the fridge overnight.
3. Top it with some fresh fruit and enjoy!

The chia seeds expand overnight and the pudding should have a similar texture to tapioca pudding.

This was my first time making chia pudding and I loved how it turned out. It only takes a few minutes to prepare before you go to sleep and it makes for a very easy breakfast in the morning or midday snack.
