I kept meaning to try chia seed pudding, I really did. It’s the kind of alternative weird thing that makes its way around the Internet that I usually end up liking, adopting, and keeping forever. Like kale chips. I still love those. (Personally though, zucchini “spaghetti” just never worked for me. That shit’s gross.)
Anyways, I’d never actually made my way around to trying it until today and now I’m totally hooked. I’ve been a reluctant oatmeal person my whole life and recently I’d fallen off of even that track and started not eating breakfast at all. I down a whole cup of coffee, get right to work, and totally forget about eating until it’s 2pm and I’m roaring and starving. So there you have it. Bad habits fully admitted to.
Chia seed pudding is super super easy, can be totally customized, and is really healthy. It’s also vegan, probably paleo, or whatever, and definitely good for your joints. (Those chia seeds are a power food. Even my mom says so, haha.)
Combine 1 3/4 cups of Original soymilk with 1/2 cup of chia seeds, 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract, and a tiny pinch of salt. Stir well, making sure chia seeds are not clumped together (as best you can). Keep in glass and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, top chia seed pudding with fresh berries, reheated frozen berries, and a sprinkle of cocoa nibs.
Enjoy what feels like dessert for breakfast! xo
