Chia Pudding

Chia Seeds are my new favorite super food! They fill me up and are stacked with healthy omega-3, antioxidants, protein, and pure greatness! They do add a new texture, which I love, but add as a warning for anyone who may be sensitive to textures.
This is a PERFECT dessert or on-the-go Breakfast. There are many variations, but here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!

MAIN Ingredients

1 c Almond Milk
3-4 Tbs Chia Seeds


1 tsp Vanilla 
1 T Honey / Aquava Nectar

2 Tbs Cocoa Powder
2 tsp Honey
   *OR Substitute Vanilla Almond Milk for Chocolate Almond Milk

(Pumpkin) - My Favorite :)
1/2 c Pumpkin Puree
1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/4 tsp vanilla
dash of Stevia (optional)

To get best results... 
Place all ingredients EXCEPT Chia seeds into a pint CANNING JAR. Add the Chia seeds last. Put lid on jar and screw closed until tight. Shake it for a few minutes. Place in the fridge for at least 15 minutes (over night works GREAT for breakfast). Open and Enjoy!

  1. I have so much mashed hubbard squash in my freezer, so this is the perfect way to use it up. (Plus squash/pumpkin counts as a vegetable for us!)
