Happy Monday to YOU! The weekends just continue to fly right by us so quickly. I finally got to crackin and dedicated majority of my weekend to school work. I know that is extremely exciting and you all are very jealous 😉 We did fit in some family time, workouts, had a little cooking date, and some blog prepping to make my weekend not entirely consistent of typing fingers and my nose in a textbook. I hope you all had a great weekend!
Today I’m sharing a recipe with you all. I don’t like to go into much detail or tell you about any recipes I haven’t personally tried myself and as most of you know my husband wears the chef hat in our household so it’s not often I get to share recipes. Welllll I tried something new and it’s worth sharing 🙂
We are all about easy and on the go breakfast during the week. I made this Chia Seed Pudding the night before and had it for breakfast the next morning. It was SO good. It literally taste like having vanilla ice cream for breakfast, with the health benefits of amazing chia seeds and fresh fruit… WIN WIN! My diet is lactose free so we have been playing around with some dairy free recipes and this quick and easy little number is at the top of my list now. Chia seeds are a power food that I suggest adding in every smoothie so knowing this pudding has so many of them in it, I was so excited to try and it didn’t disappoint.
It literally look me maybe 5 minutes last night to prepare today’s breakfast. All you do is mix the three ingredients together, pour them into a container that will be sealed tight (we used mason jars), and throw it in the fridge until the next morning. Add the toppings you prefer in the morning and you are set.
Chia Seed Pudding
13 oz coconut milk (this is in fact dairy free)
1/4 cup of chia seeds
1 tbsp. agave nectar (honey)
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
Mix everything together, put into your containers, refrigerate over night, add your toppings of choice the next morning & enjoy!
- shaved almonds
- shaved unsweetened coconut
- dried cranberries
Tips for Chia Seed Pudding:
- Have floss on hand! Those little seeds just love to get in your teeth and hangout
- Next time I may use a little less coconut milk
- Give it a try! Some people stay away from chia seeds because they seem odd, but they have zero taste, it’s just the texture. The health benefits from these little tiny seeds are SO great!!
Are there any other toppings you can think of that my be good in this pudding? Share them 🙂
Have a great start to your week!!
