Chia Seed Pudding

At this point in time, there is little left to say about the state of the weather and how little time it allows us to get about our business. The days and cold and short and there’s no way around it. As I pick up my freshly made jar of chia pudding, I am reminded that there are little ways of helping us get through it, nevertheless. There’s a bit of beauty in everything! Packed with antioxidants and high-quality protein, chia seeds are the gluten-free superfood that will keep your guts oh so happy. Make weekly and pop out anytime you feel like it.

  • What type of coconut milk do you use? The organic beverage in a container? Or the full fat kind from a can? Thank you!

  • Wow. Simple recipe. I am surely going to try the same. Can I replace maple syrup with Honey or regular sugar?

    • Of course! I’ve never tried honey but that sounds amazing! I simply use brown sugar because it’s healthier, and you might need to add less honey since it’s so sweet, but a bit of trial and error doesn’t hurt 😉

  • I love chia pudding! It’s so simple and versatile. I like to process fresh or frozen fruits to use as part of my soaking liquid, and I make several jars at a time. I also like mine really chia-y and use about 1/4 cup of seeds per cup of liquid. Maple syrup and vanilla sounds like a great combo!
