Recipe: Gluten-Free Chia Seed Pudding
I have been making a great chia seed pudding for breakfast lately and it is so good and healthy that I decided it was time to post the recipe. Chia seed pudding is a great gluten-free breakfast option and even better for those who don’t eat dairy but want to have something for breakfast that’s similar in consistency to yogurt. My typical go-to breakfast has been eggs and veggies or a green smoothie but I’ve added this Chia Seed pudding into the mix lately and I’ve been very happy with it.
Here’s what you will need:
- 4-5 Tbsps Chia Seeds
- 1 Can Light or regular coconut milk (I have used both and prefer light but its a personal preference
- 1/2 can water
- Cinnamon, Vanilla, and Nutmeg to taste
First take the can of coconut milk and pour into a small- medium sized bowl. Then add 1/2 can water and the chia seeds and stir. If you want to add more water you can but too much might make it soupy. Mix in the cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla and set aside in the fridge overnight. This makes several servings depending on portion size.
What I like to do is make a batch and pour it into mason jars so I can just grab the jar and go in the morning.
The chia seed pudding is okay on it’s own but I like to add toppings to it. One of my favorite is blueberries. I will add 2 handfuls to the mix and stir it up. If you are looking for more substance you can add a tbsp of almond butter which is always a good treat. A really good combo is mashing 1/2 banana in there with some almond butter.
Chia seed pudding deliciousness.
This is a recipe I’ve learned while doing the whole life challenge (like whole30 but uses a point system and incorporates exercise and overall wellness). I don’t think chia seeds are whole30 compliant but they are whole life approved and have been good to me. They are also a good source of omega 3’s. Enjoy!
