Chia Seed Pudding

As most people know, chia seeds are highly nutritious and known as a "superfood". What is also great about them is the fact that they are so easy to add into our diets. This chia seed pudding is not only healthy, but simple to make and delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • drizzle of maple syrup or coconut sugar
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds

Method

  1. Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl, drizzling in the maply syrup or sugar to taste.
  2. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate over night (or approx. 4 hours).
  3. When ready to serve, stir the chia mixture again to eliminate any clumps.
  4. Serve spoonfuls of chia pudding into bowls or glasses. Garnish with cashew cream and fruit, or whatever you fancy.

Notes

  1. This makes a great breakfast with granola; or a wonderful dessert with cashew cream, shavings of dark chocolate, coconut and almonds.
  2. If the pudding is too thick, stir in some extra milk just before serving.
  3. I may reduce the chia seeds to 2, or 2-1/2 tsp for next time.
  4. For non vegans: Replace the coconut milk with regular milk if preferred, and yoghurt or creme fraiche to serve.
