Easy Chia Pudding

A few weeks ago Mama Chia sent me some chia seeds to try out. I have only used chia seeds a few times before so I was really excited to be able to use them again!

What Is Chia? (WebMD Source)

Chia is an edible seed that comes from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, grown in Mexico dating back to Mayan and Aztec cultures. “Chia” means strength, and folklore has it that these cultures used the tiny black and white seeds as an energy booster. That makes sense, as chia seeds are a concentrated food containing healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium.

Chia seeds are an unprocessed, whole-grain food that can be absorbed by the body as seeds (unlike flaxseeds). One ounce (about 2 tablespoons) contains 139 calories, 4 grams of protein, 9 grams fat, 12 grams carbohydrates and 11 grams of fiber, plus vitamins and minerals.

I found myself on Pinterest pinning chia seeds recipes but there was one recipe that I wanted to really try – Chia Seed Pudding!

I love overnight oats and thought the addition of chia seeds would be a morning boost!

Easy Chia Pudding

1/3 cup Mama Chia chia Seeds
1/2 cup oats
1 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon maple syrup
fresh fruit for topping

Mix all ingredients in a sealed container and place in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. Stir before you eat and add more milk, maple syrup or fruit to your liking.

I am not a huge fan of the “chia slime” so I add a little more milk before I eat!
