Chia Seeds, almond milk and honey. It’s really that easy! I have heard ALL the excuses for not having breakfast from my clients over the years. For me, when I am in a solid eating routine, I feel so much more grounded, energetic and pulled together. This recipe takes literally 2 minutes to make – then just stick it in the fridge overnight. The next morning, scoop the pudding into a little bowl and add fruit, nuts or any toppings you like. Easy peasy, healthy and breezy. No more excuses!
Chia seeds have become known as a nutritional powerhouse! Each serving provides 8 grams of fiber and 4 grams of Omega-3 fatty acid. They also contain high amounts of many minerals, though a poor source of vitamins. The most abundant minerals are manganese, phosphorus, copper, selenium, iron, magnesium and calcium.
2 Tablespoons chia seeds (I get mine at Trader Joes)
1/2 Cup Almond Milk (I use unsweetened original by Simple Truth at Kroger)
1 teaspoon honey, agave or other sweetener
Optional: cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg
Start by pouring 1/2 cup of almond milk into a jar with a lid
Add the 2 Tablespoons of chia seeds and stir well
Add the teaspoon of honey and stir again
Finally mix in spices of choices and put in the fridge for at least 3 hours. I prefer overnight.
Serving Suggestion: Add any fruit of choice, blueberries, strawberries, banana slices, mango cubes. Coconut flakes are fun and I also like to add a few sunflower seeds and slivered almonds for a little crunch!
Simply, double the recipe if you want to eat this a few mornings in a row or share with your family. 1 cup of almond milk, 4 TBSP of chia seeds and 2 tsp of sweetener. Enjoy!
