Cinnamon Chia Pudding

Makes 3 (200 calorie) servings

If you’re new to the benefits of chia, you’re in for a treat.  Chia seeds are a nutritional powerhouse, containing more omega 3s than salmon, more antioxidants than blueberries, plus ample calcium, fiber and protein (4 grams in just 2 tbsps).  Relatively low in calories for all of the amazing nutrients they deliver, chia seeds are an excellent addition to baked goods for the nutty flavor they impart.

But the real fun of chia seeds comes in the soaking.   Placed in liquid, they’ll absorb up to 12 times their weight and thicken to resemble a tapioca pudding texture, the mild flavor of which pairs perfectly with fruit.   This delicious Cinnamon Chia Pudding takes just a few minutes to make, then store in the fridge for a healthy snack or quick breakfast option.

Ingredients

Combine chia and all liquid in a pint sized glass jar.  Shake to combine, wait a few minutes and shake again to insure the chia seeds don’t form a clump on the bottom during the first 5 minutes of soaking.

Once they’ve begun to expand you can leave them soaking for at least 30 minutes, top with your favorite berries or diced fruit, and your Cinnamon Chia Pudding is ready to enjoy!  Store refrigerated for up to 5 days.
