I finally bought some chia seeds while in Florida, and, since they leave a dent in the wallet, I wanted to make use of them.
Chia seeds are the epitome of versatile (awesome Pinterest board!). You’ll spend hours searching the infinite recipes online. I found one that I thought was great, so I want to share it with you.
Let me introduce you to what’s bound to be your new go-to breakfast item: chia pudding.
It’s simple. It’s painless. It’s delicious. What’s better than that for breakfast?
The recipe, which I found on the lovely Domesticate Me, calls for ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen right now:
I followed the directions for the most part. I used greek yogurt (Fage) and honey instead of maple syrup.
Here’s how it turned out…
This was before it was refrigerated over night.
This was before I smashed it!
I ran out of time (and embarrassingly ingredients) to really go all out on toppings. It definitely could have used a crunch, but other than that it was extremely good. I’ll be making this again. And again. And again.
It’s the fiber that creates the gel consistency when combined with liquid! This fiber also makes you feel full, which could help in weight loss. Scientific tests have not shown results in weight loss, however.
