Vegan Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding | sivanandabahamas.org

Vegan Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Another delicious recipe from Grace Van Berkum.

Chia seeds, nature’s little powerhouse, are an amazing superfood providing calcium, alkalinizing, absorbable protein, and anti-aging antioxidants. (Yes, this is where the famous chia pet came from!) They are also high in omega-3 fatty acids much needed for optimal energy levels, heart health, brain health, and burning fat. Their high fibre content helps to stabilize blood sugar and suppress hunger.

The following recipe can be a healthy, nutrient dense breakfast, snack, or dessert that will provide you with sustainable energy. It’s an excellent source of protein and essential fatty acids too.

2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 cup unsweetened almond, or cashew milk
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
**topping: fresh fruit, and/or fresh coconut, and/or fresh mint.

**variation: instead of adding cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, add 1 tsp of raw, organic cocoa powder or carob powder for a chocolate chia pudding.

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and set aside for 15 minutes so the chia seeds can do their chia magic. Abra-ca-dabra…they will soak up the moisture and turn into a pudding consistency. Chill (if you can wait!) then serve.

Top with fresh berries of choice, and/or fresh mint leaves, and/or sprinkle fresh grated coconut on top. I like to serve it in a martini glass!
