What's for breakfast? If you're looking for something simple that doesn't require turning on the stove or oven, give this chia pudding a try. I prep this the night before so that it's ready to go for breakfast the next morning.
Chia seeds are a nutrient-dense food. They pack quite a punch without a bunch of calories. One ounce of chia seeds contains 11 grams of fiber, 4 grams of plant-based protein, plus a decent amount of healthy fat, antioxidants, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus.
8 oz. non-dairy milk (I used Malk unsweetened almond milk)
5 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp maple syrup
(optional) fruit toppings
Pour the non-dairy milk into a jar. Add the chia seeds and maple syrup, and stir vigorously to mix everything together.
Place the jar in the fridge overnight.
Optionally, you can top the pudding with fruit or any other toppings that you desire.
I like buying frozen fruit and thawing it out overnight. Then I pour it over the chia pudding the next morning. Lately, I've been loving mango and berries. I've also tried topping chia pudding with shredded coconut, nuts, and cacao nibs.
