I love chia pudding as an easy make-ahead breakfast or school-friendly snack.
Two tablespoons of chia seeds contains 3.5 grams of protein, 7 grams of fiber, and 6 grams of fat. They also contain calcium (15% of the RDA), iron (10% of RDA), magnesium, zinc, and other nutrients.
1.5 cups of milk/mylk (I love coconut milk if making a creamy/thick/filling pudding)
½ cup chia seeds
1 TBSP maple syrup (can do more if looking for a sweeter snack)
Can mix in 1-2 TBSP peanut butter, chocolate chips, 2 TBSP cocoa powder or fruit puree if desired.
Whisk all of the ingredients together (or blend if looking for a smoother consistency), cover, shake, and refrigerate overnight.
Serve with fresh fruit or your favourite topping!
