Raspberry Chia Pudding
Chia pudding is one of the easiest ways to work superfoods into your diet - not to mention how incredibly tasty and versatile it is to make! It takes virtually 5 minutes to whip together, and then all you've got to do is have enough patience to let it chill in the fridge for a few hours. I like to make my pudding at night so that there's no waiting ;) Chia pudding works beautifully as an alternative to overnight oats, cereal, or your morning yogurt for breakfast; or really wonderful as dessert.
The only thing you need to remember when making chia pudding is a simple ratio of 1 cup milk to 4 tbsp chia seeds. I love Nutiva chia seeds - I get them from Costco! :) You can use any type of milk, such as coconut, almond, rice, soy, or cow :) You can stir in greek yogurt for some more texture and fluff. When it comes to flavoring your pudding, anything goes! Blend up some fresh fruit, use chocolate, mint, peanut butter, nutella... the list goes on and on.
An easy treat for Valentine's Day is to toss some raspberries into the blender and add them to your pudding. Serve it with fresh mint, or shaved chocolate for a sweet, healthy treat. Watch the video below to find out how :)
What You Need:
1 cup milk
4 tbsp chia seeds
handful of raspberries (1/2-1 cup)
drizzle of honey or agave
for garnish: chocolate shavings, mint, raspberries, coconut shavings, granola, hemp seeds
What To Do:
In a food processor or blender, mix together 1 cup milk, a handful of raspberries, and a drizzle of honey or agave for sweetness just until the raspberries are blended into the milk.
Whisk together the raspberry milk mixture with 4 tbsp chia seeds. Chill for at least 4 hours or until the chia seeds bloat up.
Serve with your favorite garnishes!
