This chia pudding is a great oatmeal alternative for balanced blood sugar in the morning. Make it ahead for an easy on-the-go option. For an extra protein boost, add a scoop of collagen protein powder.
Essential Chia Pudding
MAKES 4 (1/2 CUP) SERVINGS
by Erin Parekh, Head of Nutrition
1 can organic culinary grade light coconut milk
OR 1.5 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk of choice
1/3 cup chia seeds
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
small pinch sea salt
Whisk all ingredients together. Let sit 5 minutes, then stir again making sure the chia seeds don't clump together. Store covered in the fridge for at least one hour until set. Serve chilled.
The pudding will keep for at least 2-3 days in the fridge. See topping ideas below.
NOTE: If the pudding becomes too thick, stir in several splashes of nut milk or coconut water to thin. I find the texture is very personal, and it’s easy to add more liquid once set.
