When To Serve ?

Kids make it their own with their choice of toppings for breakfast when we need something quick and on-the-go.

Is 3.00 pm afternoon and snacking your trying time ? It sure is mine. I prefer to avoid the urge to eat but it’s hard. For trying times like that, you need a healthy, satisfying snack. This chia pudding makes me snack guilt-free and I can breeze into dinner time without feeling deprived.

Same goes for late night sweet tooth cravings. Sure cookies and ice cream desserts are enticing but chocolate rich chia pudding is much healthier and satiating along with Vegan Turmeric Latte.

How To Customize

Best part about chia pudding ? There are a million different ways to jazz it up. Chia seeds do not have any flavor or taste of their own. They take on any flavor superbly. So use them as blank slate and paint your own masterpiece.

Chopped fresh or dried fruit, various nut butters, granola, dried coconut and chocolate chips are all good options to jazz up the toppings. Same goes for liquid. I am using almond milk but any other milk including coconut milk works.

I love to add homemade Apple Butter Sauce and Apple Ginger Chutney to add extra flavors especially during fall and winter months. Adding Superfood Immunity Boosting Powder also is great option.

It is vegan, gluten-free, paleo and dairy free. Since I am using Stevia as a sweetener , it also is low carb and keto. Make a large batch and enjoy a healthy sweet treat throughout the week.

And here’s something even better : it is SUPER healthy dessert.  It helps keep you full and satisfied all day long. It’s also meal-prep friendly.

How long is chia pudding good for?

Once you have mixed all of the ingredients together, you need to leave it in the fridge for at least couple hours, preferably overnight. It stays well for four or five days. If you are adding fresh fruit, mix it just before serving. I love making a batch at the start of the week for easy to grab breakfast every morning.

How does Chia Pudding work?

Chia seeds absorb up to 12 times liquid to their own weight. Once you soak them, they swell and expand. It creates pulp / jelly like texture. If you combine it with milk, the creamy texture thus forms a pudding.
