How do you make easy chia pudding?
It's really easy.
- In a bowl you mix chia seeds and milk of your choice. I love my hazelnut milk the best.
- Add touch of vanilla extract and a tablespoon of yoghurt to make it a bit more creamy.
- Put it in the fridge for minutes to set.
- After 15 minutes take it out and stir well again before placing back in the fridge.
- Give it another 30 minutes before layering with your favourite toppings and then serve.
You can leave out the maple syrup if you prefer to sweeten it only with toppings like fresh fruit, dried fruit or granola.
The benefits of chia are endless... source of omega-3s + high in fiber + promotes regularity for healthy digestive tract + loaded with antioxidants. You can read more about benefits of chia seeds here.
