Chia Seed Pudding

30 Apr

Growing up a little kids, we had tapioca A LOT. Our mom was (and still is) a huge fan, so it was kinda a staple in our refrigerator. However, as we grew older, we did not find ourselves eating it as much as we use to.

You know how love a certain food and eat it 47151838461 times in a row and then all of a sudden you stop buying it because you’re sick of it. I think that’s what happened.

Recently, we have been eager to try chia seed pudding. It’s been everywhere on the blog world. After talking about making it for ages, last Friday we finally got the chance, and lets just say we are back on our “tapioca” kick.

Chia seed pudding is a great healthy alternative to the tapioca we loved as kids. If you were a tapioca fan, you should definitely give this a try!

Chia Seed Pudding (Serves 1)

Ingredients:
1 cup of milk of choice (preferably one packed with protein)
3 tablespoons of chia seeds
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla
1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup

Directions:
1. Combine milk, chia seeds, vanilla, and maple syrup in parfait glass and stir thoroughly.
2. Cover and place in fridge overnight
3. In the morning top with fresh fruit and nuts.

We used ultra Pacific soy milk because an 8 oz. serving has 10 grams of protein! In the morning we topped these with chopped almonds, hemp seeds, granola, banana slices, and blueberries.

Besides tapioca pudding, growing up our diet consisted of mainly cool pops, rice krispy treats, and bread with butter. So nutritious right? We’ve definitely come a long way. What was your favorite food growing up?
