Here is a super easy recipe for a healthy, filling breakfast (or really...an anytime meal!):
You just need 2 ingredients: Almond milk (or soy, rice, coconut...whatever) and chia seeds. You can find chia seeds in the health food section of your local grocery store or here. They are a great source of antioxidants, Omega-3s and fiber. I like to use vanilla flavored milk alternative, but you could certainly make this with plain.
For 1 serving of Chia Pudding:
3 T chia seeds
1/2 cup milk alternative
1 t honey or brown rice syrup (optional...I do this when I use plain almond or coconut milk)
Berries or fruit for topping
In a small bowl or mason jar, combine chia seeds, almond milk, and sweetener if using. Stir to combine (or just put the lid on and shake, if using a mason jar!). Place in fridge and let congeal overnight. Chia seeds absorb liquid, so your pudding will have a nice, tapioca-like consistency. Stir or shake before serving and top with fruit. YUM!
You could send some as a snack for side for your kiddo's lunch, too! Enjoy!
