Basic Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seed pudding is super simple to make; there’s no cooking required.

Mix one part chia seeds with two parts liquid (almond milk is probably the easiest choice), stir, and wait. Over the course of 15 to 30 minutes, the chia seeds will gelatinize and the pudding will thicken up nicely. You can use your favorite plant or nut based milk, just make sure it’s organic and unsweetened. And, you can add whatever fruit and nut combination you like to this pudding. It’s rather bland, so I like to jazz it up with raspberries, nuts, cacao nibs, goji berries, raisins, pomegranate seeds, cinnamon, a few tablespoons of hempseeds, and anything else I can think of for extra flavor.

Chia seeds are high in omega-3s, and they are an excellent source of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, and copper. They have a high protein composition (19-23%) too, making them a kind of perfect food.
