So, this thing called chia pudding is a little something I have seen spread across the food blogs, and several posts in my newsfeed has been for exactly this!
I had chia seeds at hand, and I loooove almond milk, so I decided to give this a shot. And guess what? It's another vegan recipe! This is a lovely alternative to yogurt, or smoothies. Actually, you could probably use this as a base for a smoothie come to think of it!
Let your mind in control over what you want to add to it, whether it be crunchy granola, chopped nuts, spices, berries or fruits....and enjoy *smiles*
2 tbsp (1/4 cup) Chia seeds
1 cup almond mild
A few drops stevia vanilla/vanilla crême
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- Simply mix the chia seeds and almond milk, stirring well - and set cold overnight. Or from morning to evening if having it as a treat after dinner or an evening snack.
- The next day, add the sweetner, and stir until the chia seeds are breaking up. Add berries, granola, nuts or other accompaniments of choice, and enjoy!
- I continued the whole piña colada theme and added two broken-up pineapple rings and a bit of the piña colada granola - tasty!
Several blogsites, this snack seems to become very popular these days! Note - some people don't stir it after having combined the almond milk and chia seeds and add the sweetners before it's left to set.
