This is my all time favorite healthy 3pm snack or I love to include it as a part of my breakfast spread. Especially great if I’m entertaining! It’s made with a mix of Coconut – Almond milk, Chia seeds & Organic honey and it’s loaded with protein, fiber and healthy fats!
When making Chia Seed Pudding, the ratio is so important for getting the best pudding like, creamy consistency! I’ve made this sooooo many times and in the end, I found that the best ratio to make it into a complete snack serving is to measure 2 tablespoons of chia seeds for every half cup of milk. And then add 1 teaspoon of honey to every tablespoon of chia seeds.
- Add everything together in a large bowl or mason jar (depending how big a batch you make) – and stir the seeds and honey into the milk really well. It helps if you use a clear bowl so you check all around for any clumps.
- You can then pour the mixture into the desired serving bowls, cover and place it in the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight!
- Top with your favorite fruit, nuts, seeds, cacao nibs for crunch or even dried fruits!
This is fabulous for breakfast or a Satisfying in-between meal cravings and will curb your appetite until your next meal.
