Chia pudding is my easy breakfast option on busy mornings. You will love this chia pudding made with slim milk and raw honey. Top with your favourite seasonal fruits and nuts and enjoy it.
For busy mornings, you can make the pudding overnight and keep in the fridge. It is that easy.
Being a superfood, chia seeds are super healthy and have a lot of health benefits. These tiny seeds are loaded with many nutrients and are an excellent source of fiber, calcium, omega 3 fatty acids and protein. So chia pudding is good for you.
Chia Pudding Ingredients
Milk: Skimmed milk/Almond Milk /Cashew Milk/ Soya Milk
Sweeteners : jaggery (Indian unrefined sugar)/maple syrup/raw honey/coconut sugar
Fruits: You can add fruits like apple, bananas, mango (when in season), strawberries, blueberries, cherries, sapota.
How to make Chia Pudding
Add 2 tablespoons chia seeds in a glass or jar. If you want you can rinse the seeds with water in a superfine strainer
Add 2 cups of milk of your choice
Mix everything till the sweetener is dissolved. Break lumps if any with a spoon. Cover and place the glasses in the refrigerator for 2 hours or for some more time or overnight
Later, remove the glasses from the fridge. You will see that the pudding has nicely thickened.
Stir again and break lumps if any. The pudding will be thick
Top chia pudding with chopped fruits, nuts and serve. Most of the time I add bananas (as they are a staple in my home), strawberries (when in season) and blueberries
During the mango season, I love to have mangoes in the chia seed pudding. For the nuts, I add whatever I have in the kitchen – almonds, raisins, cashews, pistachios, pine nuts, walnuts, etc. Serve straight away.
