Super Simple Chia Seed Pudding

Super Simple Chia Seed Pudding

  • Ready In 30 minutes
  • Serves 1

I love chia seed pudding! Chia seeds are a super seed filled with fiber, protein and omega-3 fatty acids. On top of being really good for you, they taste great, especially when combined with low-glycemic berries. This recipe comes from my friends at Curry Girls Kitchen. Enjoy for breakfast or a snack!

INGREDIENTS
  • 3 tablespoons whole chia seeds

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom (optional)

  • 1/2 cup hot water or nut milk

  • 1/2 cup washed organic berries

  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds (can substitute toasted or raw pumpkin or sunflower seeds)

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)

Step 1

In a medium bowl, combine the chia seeds, cardamom, and cinnamon and pour the hot water over the mixture. Let rest to firm up, about 20-30 minutes.

Step 2

Wash the fruit and slice into bite-sized pieces if needed.

Step 3

Top the thickened chia seed pudding with berries, coconut flakes and any other seeds. Enjoy!
