Remember in the 90’s where having a “Ch-ch-ch-Chia Pet” was all the rage? Well, now we think you should take those seeds and instead of planting them, eat them.
Chia seeds are a known superfood and have all kinds of health benefits like being a great source of omega-3’s, improving digestive health, stabilizing your glycemic index, and being chock-full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. They also have a unique property where after soaking in a liquid, they swell up which is what gives this healthy recipe a pudding-like texture! Shake this up and put in your fridge tonight, and enjoy tomorrow morning for breakfast!
- 1 cup almond/coconut milk beverage (can also use soy milk)
- 3/4 cup fresh blueberries, blackberries and raspberries
- 3 tbsp chia seeds
- Stevia, sugar or honey to taste
Combine almond-coconut milk together with the chia seeds in a glass jar with a lid. Cover and shake well, set aside for 15 minutes. Give it another good shake then refrigerate overnight or at least 5-6 hours.
Divide into 2 bowls or glass serving dishes, add berries and serve. Enjoy!
