Besides for the many health benefits of chia seeds, they also help you feel full as the seeds expand. Try this basic recipe and mix it up to create a variety of flavors. As a great ‘make ahead’, it’s perfect for this time of year when we’re looking for a quick breakfast, snack, or a Shabbos treat.
CHIA PUDDING Basic Recipe:
1 cup unsweetened plant milk of choice
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
Optional: sweetener of choice (date paste, maple syrup)
Here are some yummy add ins:
bananas, walnuts, apples, cinnamon, fresh or frozen fruit: strawberries, blueberries, cherries, cocoa/cacao powder, nut butter or PB2, few mini high cacao choc chips.
Think apple pie, banana walnut, pb and jelly, choc pb, carrot cake. Possibilities are endless and online recipes abound.
Whisk all ingredients in a small container or blend for smoother consistency. I love to use little glass mason jars. Cover and refrigerate overnight. They keep for 4-5 days in the fridge. Enjoy L’chvod Shabbos!
