Chia seeds are a nutritional powerhouse, full of fiber, iron, niacin, magnesium, and other crucial vitamins and minerals. And, they're super easy to incorporate into your diet with our classic chia seed pudding. Read on for this easy recipe, sure to become a new breakfast staple.
In bowl, combine milk, chia seeds, maple syrup (optional) and vanilla extract. Mix and place in fridge to soak overnight.
The next morning, rinse the fresh fruit in fruit and veggie wash (we recommend Rebel Green Fruit & Veggie Clean, available at Target, Walmart, and local health food stores). Then, if you chose strawberries, hull them (remove green top), and quarter. Blueberries and raspberries require no further prep.
Gently pat fruit dry with paper towel. In mason jar, alternate layering chia pudding and fruit until jar is 3/4 full.
The final addition to this delectable pudding is to garnish with granola or dried coconut flakes for a textural element. Serve immediately!
Consider adding more granola and layering with that as well, or alternate using mango purée rather than berries for a tropical twist. You can even skip the vanilla extract and simply use vanilla-flavored milk instead. There are a never-ending array of cool combinations to choose from for all your future chia pudding needs!
