Fruit and Nut Chia Seed Pudding

This is, perhaps, the simplest chia seed pudding you can make. It’s a delightful dish to share with friends, if you prepare the pudding then lay out all the toppings. That way, each person can complete itin their own way. Servings: 4-6.

Pudding Ingredients

  • 3 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or to taste)

Toppings

  • fresh fruit– banana, blueberries, figs, peaches (or whatever is your favourite)
  • nuts and seeds – toasted sliced almonds, peanuts, cashews, walnuts (again, go for your favourite)
  • coconut flakes
  • cinnamon

Directions

  • 2 Easy, TastyAnd Super Nutritious Chia Seed Pudding RecipesWhisk the pudding ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • Leave for 5-10 minutes and whisk again to prevent clumping.
  • Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours (overnight is best).
  • Stir occasionally if you get the chance. It’s quite okay if you don’t.
  • Stir well before serving into individual bowls.
  • Add toppings.

If there are leftovers (there probably won’t be) you can store them up to 5 days in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.

Thickness Tip

The thickness of pudding is a personal preference. In each of these recipes you can:

  • thicken it by adding some more chia seeds and leaving it to sit for about 30 minutes
  • thin it out by adding a small amount of the main liquid

Of course, it will take some trial and error to get the consistency just right for you – but it will be delicious trial and error!

Getting all of chia seeds benefits as part of a sweet treat makes it all the more appealing. Try the two recipes here “as is” or tweaked to your taste. With chia seeds the possibilities are endless!
