Hello from the other side! 😉 (I am singing here, people.. 😀 )
Today I have something very easy for you! A healthy chia seed pudding that you can make beforehand and serve it for breakfast(or as a snack!) throughout the week. I got some inspiration from a book that I bought recently – it is called “Nauja draugystė su maistu” (“New relationship with food”) by a nutrition adviser and blogger Solamita from Healthy Happened. I noticed this girl and her blog some years ago and I was interested immediately – recipes, photography and presentation really appealed to me. And when I saw that she is releasing her own book I knew that I have to have it. 😉 If you are into healthy eating or you want to incorporate more plant based foods into your diet I suggest you to check her website (or buy the book!). 😉
OK… back to business. As I said already, the recipe is really simple – all you have to do is make the base for this pudding (I took the recipe from the Healthy Happened book) and you are good to go. For that you’ll need:
Chia seed pudding (base):
- 3 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 cup (250ml) plant-based milk
Put chia seeds in a jar and cover them with milk. Stir well. Wait for about 5 minutes and stir again so the seeds would even out (if you don’t do that they will turn out as one big lump). I stirred them up another time, just to be sure. Close the jar and put it in the fridge for at least an hour or two. For the best results – overnight.
When the pudding is ready it is your time to shine. You can add fresh fruits, berries, shredded coconut, nuts, granola – the options are endless! There are some of the recipes I want to try from the book (chia pudding with mango and avocado cream, yum), so I will definitely do it later. This time I had a banana, some shredded coconut and some cinnamon.
I put some cinnamon on the top of the pudding, then mashed a banana and added it, too. I also had some slices of banana to top it of to make it nicer (of course). I sprinkled some shredded coconut and there you are. Easy, healthy, and so good. Enjoy!
