Chia seeds are known for their high level of omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidant properties, but how do those hard little granular chia seeds produce a pudding so creamy, rich, and well, pudding-like? When mixed with liquid chia seeds expand and take on a different texture, like gelatin.
Adding just three other simple ingredients to them results in this healthy dessert which is full of vanilla and honey in every bite. I use full fat cow's milk for this recipe, but it works well with rice, almond, and most other kinds of milk.
|Almond milk/Rice milk||2 Cup (32 tbs) (or soy/cow milk)|
|Honey/Agave||1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (or maple syrup)|
|Vanilla extract||2 Teaspoon|
|Chia seeds||1/2 Cup (8 tbs)|
1. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, honey and vanilla. Add the chia seeds and stir to combine.
2. Refrigerate 4 hours, stirring once halfway through.
3. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
