Breakfast can be tricky for me. I LOVE smoothies but don't always feel like taking the blender out. I get tired of eggs + try to avoid muffins, yogurt & processed cereals/granola so I have been searching for a really good healthy breakfast alternative + I have found it! I am so happy to share it with you, because it is so yummy + so simple! The addition of Green Dream adds extra protein + greens while the chia seeds are full of good omega fats!
Chia seeds are an excellent source of protein, full of antioxidants, omega 3's, calcium + fiber.
In this recipe I soak them overnight in my homemade nut milk + add fresh fruit (berries are the best) in the morning for a yummy + nourishing breakfast.
I have tried many variations + found the best ratio, so the pudding has the perfect consistency:
- 1 C of Almond Milk (or any tasty liquid you like, hemp milk, coconut milk etc.)
- 3 T organic chia seeds
- 1 t organic vanilla extract
- optional sweetener (coconut palm sugar, honey, etc)
- 1 T Green Dream
- 1 T Berry Bliss
- fresh fruit for topping
in a bowl combine 1 C of liquid with 3 T of chia seeds + whisk for about 2 minutes, then let sit for 4 minutes, when the seeds start to soak in the water + get a bit clumpy, whisk up again, wait a minute + then one more time stir it up, so you have already a nice liquid pudding. Fill into a bowl or mason jar + place into the fridge overnight. In the morning add your favorite fruit, Berry Bliss + Green Dream and optional sweetener!

ONE LAST THING: You can prepare already a few mason jars with chia pudding and leave them in the fridge, they can be easily taken to work for a healthy snack and are perfect after a yoga practice. The chia pudding keeps well for about 3-4 days in the fridge.
