In need of a delicious treat that doesn’t spike your blood sugar and leave your gut a mess? Enter chia pudding. When done right, this tasty treat can really fit the bill as both delicious and nutritious. Chia seeds contain a healthy amount of fiber (11 grams in 2 tbsp!!) which can help with constipation, and high levels of anti inflammatory omega 3 fats. What’s not to like?!
1 can light coconut milk–BPA free can preferred
1/3 c chia seeds
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp honey or maple syrup; or as an alternative add a few drops of stevia to taste
Optional: add 1 tsp of cinnamon to give this seasonal flair!
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
- Refrigerate for 4 hours until pudding has set
- ENJOY! Feel free to top with extra–I love berries and toasted almonds or shown here with grain-free granola.
TIP: try this for breakfast!
