YieldServes 2, or 1 as a very filling meal
4 tablespoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon mixed cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, etc.
1 Medjool date
1 tablespoon chopped nuts
1. Blend banana, spices (improvise with these spices as they are all to taste), and vanilla with enough water to make a thin smoothie.
2. Pour mixture over chia seeds and leave to soak for about 12 minutes in the fridge, or on the counter. Keep in mind I estimated the amount of chia seeds. Generally the rule is three times as much fluid as chia.
3. After 12 minutes, the mix has formed an almost solid chia gel, and the chia seeds will have soaked up all the delicious flavor!
4. Top with chopped strawberries, dates, nuts, etc. Enjoy!
Elizabethh's ThoughtsBy elizabethh
This pudding is my favorite way to eat the super nutritious chia seed, which is a complete protein, and an excellent source of calcium.
The Aztec messengers, running from place to place constantly, could subsist on just a handful a day!
For variation, vary the spices: use vanilla bean, bananas on top, etc. This is just a basic chia pudding!
