So.. I just got hip to chia seed pudding. I’ve heard about it, but never enough to really give it much thought.
Recently, my friend in LA was telling me she makes it in the morning and it keeps her satiated until the afternoon. I decided to try it.
After trying it and liking it, I started thinking how easy it is to make as a go to snack while you’re traveling/staying in hotels. You just pick up coconut milk, chia seeds and maple syrup. Every airbnb and hotel has cups/glasses and a fridge. If you’re always hungry like me, it’s nice to have a little option like that.
I made the pudding a few times I was in Miami for the Miami Open.
I put 3/4c – 1c coconut milk, 2-3 tblsp chia seeds, some cinnamon and I add maple syrup until it’s just sweet enough for me.
Online, it says let it sit 3+ hours but I find it tastes much better when left over night, so I just make sure to prep 2 at a time and keep the cycle going.
While the pudding doesn’t keep me full too too long, it’s delcious and full of fiber, omegas, fat and protein.
People like to add raw cacao podwer, oats, berries, different kinds of milk, you should add whatever you want!!
