Ahh the chia seed. I have been using these little babies for the last 3 years now and they are delish! You can add them to smoothies, salads, yogurt etc.

My favorite way to eat them is in this chia seed pudding. It is also perfect for those people who are starting New Years resolutions that involve eating better.

Make it today – this recipes makes 6 servings.

2/3 cup chia seeds
1 1/2 cups of unsweetened almond milk or rice milk (I prefer almond myself)
1 100 ml container of greek yogurt vanilla flavored 0 or 2% milk fat
1/4 teaspoon pure almond extract (or vanilla)
1/2 tsp of pumpkin spice seasoning
Pinch of salt
Optional – 1 tbs of maple syrup if you need it sweeter
Optional – cacao nibs
Assorted fresh fruit (you can cheat a little and buy already prepped fresh fruit salad at your local grocery store and just cut is up into smaller pieces)

How to make it
Put chia seeds, almond milk, yogurt, almond extract, pumpkin pie spice and a pinch of salt in a 6 cup Tupperware container with a lid. Take a whisk and mix everything together. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. When ready to serve, spoon into bowls and top with fruit and or cacao nibs.

It is the perfect breakfast, lunch and snack. Make it today! www.Monicaskitchen.com
