Thrown together in just a couple minutes! Be sure to make this in advance (I like making it before bed) so it has time to thicken up.
For the chia pudding:
3 cups unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup chia seeds
1-3 tablespoons of honey or pure maple syrup, to taste
Honey or Pure maple syrup
Nuts and seeds
Whisk the almond milk, chia seeds, and sweetener together in a large bowl.
Cover and chill in the fridge for 2.5-3 hours, or overnight.
Stir well before serving. Portion into bowl(s) and add your desired toppings. Leftovers will keep in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.
Why I love this:
A single serving of chia seeds has 18% of the recommended daily intake (RDI) for calcium and 27% of your daily RDI for phosphorus, which promote bone health. It also has 33% of your RDI for fiber, which promotes healthy digestion. Chia seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, with nearly five grams in a one-ounce serving.
