Vanilla Chia Pudding
This pudding is a great substitute for yogurt and is packed with nutrients, filling fiber, protein and fruit to sweeten it up. Mix this up at night, place in the fridge, and enjoy in the morning! This is a great travel friendly recipe too (details on how to pack it with you below).
– 1 cup almond milk
– 1 date
– 2 Tbsp. Chia Seeds
– 1 Tbsp. Hemp seeds
– 1/4 tsp. Vanilla
– 2 tsp. flax
– Berries (fresh or frozen), banana or fruit of your preference
– Raisins or other dried fruit without preservatives or additives
– Nuts/Seeds (walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, coconut etc.)
– If this is not sweet enough for you add one pack of organic stevia
Chop date and place in bottom of bowl. Let this sit at the bottom overnight to release the sugars into the milk.
Pour almond milk over top and add chia seeds, hemp and vanilla. Stir, not disturbing dates at bottom of bowl if possible.
Place in the fridge over night or for 1 + hours. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
** You can bring this on trips with you by mixing at bag together for each day. Put 2 Tbsp. chia seeds with 1 Tbsp hemp seeds and a chopped date in a ziplock for each day you will be gone. Bring almond milk juice box containers as shown in our Magic Muesli recipe. When you get to the hotel room or before you go to bed mix the chia seed, hemp and date mixture with the almond milk and let sit overnight (preferably in a fridge if you have one). Eat as is or top with freeze dried berries &/or some nuts from your “home-made” trail mix :).
