I’ve blogged about the wonders of chia seed pudding in the past. It’s ideal for when you have overnight guests and is also great for lazy morning people like myself, who may go without breakfast if it isn’t already made or very easily accessible. This particular recipe would also be a great snack or even a healthy dessert. It’s easy to make but takes some time in the fridge, so plan ahead.
Overnight chia seed pudding
1 1/2 cups almond milk unsweetened
1/3 cup chia seeds
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2-5 Tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Sliced almonds and fresh raspberries for topping
Add all ingredients except the maple syrup to a mixing bowl and whisk vigorously to combine. Sweeten to taste with maple syrup, adding a Tbsp or two at a time, until it’s as sweet as you’d like.
Pour into individual serving cups and leave in the fridge overnight. If you’re making it as a snack or dessert, a couple hours is best.
Serve chilled with desired toppings. I like sliced almonds and raspberries.
