Chia Seed Pudding



We recently enjoyed this chia seed pudding recipe for dessert at a friends house, and I couldn't wait to try it myself. Perfect for breakfast, snack, or dessert.



Copied from: The Food Network (Giada De Laurenttis recipe) 

Ingredients
  • 1 cup vanilla-flavored unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup plain low-fat (2 percent) Greek yogurt (I used 0% to cut down on calories)*
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (preferably grade B), plus 4 teaspoons for serving
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds

*The 0% Greek yogurt will cause the pudding to be thinner... a little more runny. But we didn't mind that. 


Directions
In a medium bowl, gently whisk the almond milk, yogurt, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, the vanilla and 1/8 teaspoon salt until just blended. Whisk in the chia seeds; let stand 30 minutes. Stir to distribute the seeds if they have settled. Cover and refrigerate overnight. (Mine was in the frig for about a day and a half.) 
The next day, in a medium bowl, toss the berries with the remaining 4 teaspoons maple syrup. Mix in the almonds.
Spoon the pudding into 4 bowls or glasses; mound the berry mixture on top and serve.

  1. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, Chia seeds offer the highest volume of Omega-3, as well as addition fiber (soluble and insoluble) along with vitamins or perhaps minerals you don’t usually get whenever you take sea food oil. Chia seeds giving you long lasting energy during the day moving in deep, restful sleep during the night time. May read this article about Chia seeds at:
