Are you looking for an easy, nutrient-packed recipe to keep on hand? This chia seed pudding can quickly be served for breakfast, snack, or even dessert. Better yet, there are so many different ways that you can top-it, that you can put a unique spin on each serving. We love to top our chia seed pudding with granola, fresh fruit, fresh compote, microgreens (major nutrient boost), bee pollen, goji berries, and even thicker smoothies to make a parfait.
1 can Clean Coconut Milk
1/3 c. White Chia Seeds
1 tsp. Clean Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
2 tbsp. Fresh Orange Juice
1 tbsp. Pure Maple Syrup
In a medium-size bowl, combine all ingredients and whisk until well incorporated. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes and whisk again to remove any clumps. Cover and place in the refrigerator and allow it to cool at least one hour before consuming it.
While this chia seed pudding is delicious, it is a lot of chia seeds to consume, and we prefer not to go overboard with it at any single serving. Chia seeds are high in protein, antioxidants, and fiber, but too much of this fiber can upset one’s stomach. You may want to be a little cautious, especially if you have someone with a sensitive stomach. Coconut and chia seeds are often considered higher in phenol/salicylate.
