Three different ways to make super simple and nutritious Chia puddings! A nutrient dense, make ahead breakfast that is kid friendly.
Begin by stirring together chia seeds and unsweetened milk, and choose the flavor you want following one of the steps below.
For the nutty mocha, stir in almond butter, cacao powder, instant coffee, and maple syrup. Let sit for at least one hour in the fridge. When firm, serve with chopped nuts.
For the raspberry lemon, in a medium saucepan, cook raspberries, honey, lemon juice, and lemon zest over medium heat. Cook for 7-10 minutes, or until mixture is bubbly and well incorporated. Stir into the chia seed mixture. Let sit in the fridge for at least an hour or overnight. When firm, garnish with fresh raspberries (optional).
For the apple cinnamon raisin, stir in vanilla extract, apples, raisins, syrup, and cinnamon. Stir in the chia seed mixture. Let sit for at least one hour in the fridge. Once firm, serve and garnish with additional cinnamon.
*Use any dairy-free milk: coconut, almond, cashew, flax, etc. My preference is my homemade cashew milk: soak 1 cup raw cashews in hot water for at least 15 minutes. Drain the water, add the cashews to the blender along with 4 cups filtered water. Add 1/4 tsp sea salt, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Blend for a few minutes until smooth!
