Berry-berry Chia pudding

Chia has become my new love.

I never knew such a tiny seed could be such a beneficial bite. It is truly a power food, it contains nutrients such as calcium and protein which help your brain work well.

The flavor is mild but packs “bulk” since the seeds expand in liquid. This helps you feel full and satisfied even when eating small portions that have chia seeds in the recipe. They aid you body in regeneration due to their easy digestion and the quick absorption into cell matter.

And guess what? They are tasty too! In smoothies, baked goods, oatmeal, granola, desserts and more. Here is a chia pudding recipe slightly modified from Skinny Taste’s Triple Berry Chia Pudding

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup vanilla coconut milk
  • 1 cup of thawed frozen or fresh berries of your choice (I used blackberries and  blueberries)
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of agave nectar (or use brown rice sugar)


Directions:

Using a mason jar with lid, mix the vanilla coconut milk with the chia seeds and stir well.  Add the thawed berries and any juice and and  shake gently with lid on. I liked adding the juice as it adds a nice color to the pudding.

Shake for about one minute then let sit for 10-15 minutes until it starts to settle.  Shake again to move chia seeds from bottom of jar, then refrigerate overnight for best results. Enjoy!
