I've been playing around with this recipe for awhile now - adding and subtracting ingredients and amounts. I think I finally figured out the perfect ratios!
Why do I love this snack? 1) It's healthy (good source of protein and Omega 3s) 2) it's sweet and 3) it's easy to make. Each serving is about 125 calories, 8g total fat, 0mg cholesterol, 94mg sodium, 9g dietary fiber, 0g sugar, 3.5g protein.
- 2/3 cup chia seeds
- 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almondmilk (or any milk substitute)
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
In a deep bowl, combine the almond milk and the vanilla extract. Add the chia seeds seeds and whisk. Cover and refrigerate until very it thickens and becomes pudding-like, about 4 hours or overnight. Stir occasionally to help break up chia clumps.
Makes 4 servings. Add on your favorite toppings. I like unsweeted coconut flakes, bananas, fresh raspberries and maybe a little maple syrup!
