Chia seed pudding

16 Apr

I finally went and bought me the ingredient which i have been hearing ALOT about – chia seeds! The magical ingredient, absorbs the water around it creating a jelly like texture.

Just like tofu, chia seeds are tasteless and therefore get the taste of anything you add with them – you can definitely say chia seeds are a superfood with the countless benefits and nutrients they fill your body with.

This was my first ever try at a chia seed pudding and although i thought it was going to be a disaster till i get a concrete idea of the different ratios and amounts, it was a great success for my first ever chia seed pudding.

And i can guarantee that many more will come!

1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1/4 cup almonds milk blended with (hazlenuts, cinnamon, coconut and half a banana)
1 tablespoon oats
1 tablespoon wheatbran

Keep refrigerated overnight and enjoy this jelly like pudding for breakfast or as a snack. It really does magically transform overnight πŸ™‚

(I hadn’t blended my nuts and banana with the almond milk so they were crunchy and separate, but i think blending it would create a smoother texture and more even taste – )
