Chia Seed Pudding

Easy Chia Seed Pudding

Easy and Delicious Chia Seed Pudding. Chia seeds are one of the healthiest foods on the planet!  They are a tiny black seed from the Salvia Hispanics plant, which is part of the mint family.  The word “chia” means strength in ancient Mayan.

These tiny cute little seeds are a powerhouse packed full of vitamins.  One ounce (2 tbsp.) contains fiber, protein, healthy fats, calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous and some zinc, vitamin B3, Potassium, Vitamin B1 and Vitamin B2.  I would say that is quit a lot of nutrition in a tiny seed!

Ingredients

2 c almond milk

1 c chia seeds (depending on how thick you like it)

cinnamon to taste

a few drops of liquid Stevia (Sweet Leaf) if desired

Toppings of choice

Instructions

  1. Add almond milk, add chia seeds, cinnamon and sweetener if using to blender

  3. Top with your favorite fruits and superfoods
