Sup rebels. I thought I’d make a quick post on how I make chia pudding since I got lots of questions and comments about it on my snapchat. It looks like it’d be complicated, but it’s actually the easiest thing ever. Not to mention chia seeds are among the healthiest, nutrient packed foods on the planet. This one TINY seed is loaded with fiber, omega-3’s (which are great for brain function), high in protein, and have tons of antioxidants and other vitamins and minerals. Also, this meal will fill you up very quickly because of all the protein and fiber.
This is another recipe that doesn’t require any cooking, and you can be creative with it. I hope you guys add this into your breakfast repertoire and let me know how it goes.
I’ll usually make a big jar of this at the beginning of the week and eat it everyday for breakfast throughout the week. If you’d prefer to do it that way, I highly recommend it, but I’m writing this recipe for 2 servings so feel free to quadruple it!
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1 cup of any liquid you prefer (water, milk, almond milk, coconut milk, etc.)
- Sliced banana
- Peanut butter
- Almond butter
- Hemp seeds
- Raw honey
Pour the liquid of your choice into a jar and add the chia seeds. Cover the jar with a lid, and shake it up so all the seeds are distributed evenly and refrigerate. The seeds will start absorbing the fluid pretty quickly so try to shake the jar every few minutes for the first 10 minutes to keep them from clumping together. Let the seeds soak overnight. Once it gets to a pudding-like consistency, add all the toppings you want and enjoy!
