Chia Seed Pudding Cups are super easy to make and a tasty and healthy paleo snack! You mix chia seeds into a cup of coconut milk, add some flavor and toppings, refrigerate for a few hours and voila! 🙂 No baking, no cooking, no fuss!
Ingredients (1 serving)
1 cup coconut milk
1 Tbsp chia seeds
Flavor/topping of choice (pick one or make up your own combo!) 🙂
1/2 tsp almond essence + chopped almonds
1/4 tsp ground cardamom or cardamom seeds (open the pod)
1/2 tsp vanilla essence + fresh berries (I used red currants)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon + cinnamon sticks
Mix the coconut milk, chia seeds and flavor well
Pour into serving cup
Cover and refrigerate for a few hours or up to a couple of days
This is a basic and yummy chocolate chia pudding! I eat it for breakfast, or as a power snack. What’s the big deal about chia? Is it just a fad? Well, 2013 definitely seemed to be “year of the chia” but it’s stuck around. Chia seeds are supposed to be rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and packed with vitamins and minerals. They can be eaten raw or soaked (they absorb ~12 times weight in liquid when soaked) and are an easy add to smoothies, energy bars, yogurt, and more.
