Chia Pudding

IMG_0493.JPG

Hey Ya’ll – I’ve been getting tons of requests for my Chia Pudding recipe since starting this round of Whole30 so I figured it was about time I wrote up a quick blog post on it! This is, hands down, my go-to brekkie for busy weekday mornings when I need to be able to grab & go so to speak! This is an excellent meal option on or off Whole30 and something you can prepare in advance – always a win here on the farm! 
Here’s What You’ll Need Per Serving:
Just under 1 Cup of Almond Milk 
3 TBSP of Chia Seeds

Let’s Get Started:
The genius behind this brekkie is that it is made the night before you plan on eating it, so this recipe starts in the evening. I typically make these between 6.00-8.00pm while I’m prepping lunches & dinner for the evening. 
I like using these Ball Jars – but any small tupperware container would do here – again you’ll wanna use something you’ll grab & throw into your bag on your way out the door.

1. Start by adding your almond milk to your jar
2. Next add in your 3 TBSP of Chia Seeds
3. Stir Stir Stir 
4. Let the mixture sit on the counter for 3-5 minutes
5. Stir Stir Sir

6. That’s it for your prep work the night before – throw on your lid & toss these in the fridge overnight (or for at least 6-8 hours)
7. The next morning while you’re running around doing the 34839475 things you do before you head off to school, work or wherever your headed that day – grab your Chia Pudding from the fridge & get ready for toppings, glorious, glorious toppings. 
8. I know – I said this was a grab & go brekkie – I promise adding toppings only takes 2 minutes & I suppose COULD be done the night before but I like waiting til the morning, because, well, that’s just how I’ve always done it! 
9. Just before adding your toppings of choice (mine are listed below!) I’d recommend a quick stir of your pudding. 
Gimme the Good Stuff, Here’s What I like: 
  • 1 TBSP Raw Almond Butter
  • Pepitas
  • Raw Cacao Nibs 
  • Goji Berries
  • Flax Seeds 
  • If I’m feeling extra naughty – a bit of coconut cream (Whole30 Compliant of course!)
  • Fruit – right now I’m using blackberries. 
    • Pomegranate Seeds are lovely here, as are any other berry – banana’s would work great too!

  • 1 TBSP Raw Almond Butter
  • Pepitas
  • Flax Seeds
  • Dried Organic Cranberries
  • Fresh Cranberries
It’s just that simple y’all!
Tighten your lid & you’re ready to run out the door – don’t forget your coffee though – ain’t nobody got time for that! FullSizeRender-7.jpg
I highly recommend giving Chia Pudding a try even if you’re not doing Whole30 – it’s a great alternative for brekkie that’s super healthy & delicious too! Not to mention, super versatile – there are so many options here! 
One of our favorite variations to mix up during harvest is adding 1 TBSP of Organic Canned Pumpkin to the mix the night before along with a pinch of Pumpkin Pie Spice – YAAAS – I’m one of those people – if you are too, you’ve gotta try this one I promise you’ll love it! 
Give this a try, I can’t wait to hear what you think!
Bon Appétit!
