Vanilla Blueberry Chia Pudding

Breakfast

 

Chia Seed Pudding is amazing as breakfast or even dessert! Despite their small size,  Chia Seeds are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet! They are loaded with fiber, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and various micronutrients. This recipe is great because it is quick, simple and highly versatile.

To make things easier and save on dishes, I added all my ingredients to the two bowls I planned on eating out of. I used 3/4 a cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and a handful of frozen blueberries for each bowl. Then I added 3 tablespoons of chia seeds to each bowl and stirred them up. I popped my two bowls in the refrigerator for the night.

In the morning, I stirred them again and added a splash of almond milk. Then I microwaved each bowl for 2 minutes to warm them up. I topped my pudding with banana slices, granola and a squirt of honey. The pudding was really good but next time I want to use fresh blueberries or blend the frozen blueberries with the almond milk before adding the chia seeds. The blueberries were a little dull tasting I think because I microwaved them.

I’m not posting a dinner recipe today because I will be attending an event. Tomorrow I’ll be making Mediterranean Zucchini Noodles!
