Here is a great breakfast to start your day. This one will keep you full and satisfied without the drop in energy levels that you would get with a high carb/sugar breakfast. It’s full of good fats to enhance the taste and keep you full longer. Top it off with some berries for some added antioxidants and nuts for a bit of protein and you have a winner for a great start to your day. Chia is also great for cleansing out the digestive tract and acts almost like a sponge moving through your GI tract to push out toxins and waste while aiding in easy elimination.
Coconut Vanilla Chia Pudding
Prep 5 mins ? Cook 0 min ? Makes 4 servings
- 1 cup chia seeds
- 3 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk
- 1 13.5oz can of coconut milk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
- ¼ cup shredded coconut
- 2 cups of berries (your choice)
- ½ cup of nuts of your choice (walnuts, pecans, almond slivers, etc)
- Optional – ½ – 1 tbsp of sweetener of your choice (maple syrup, coconut sugar, stevia)
In a large bowl, combine the chia seeds, non-dairy milk, coconut milk, vanilla extra, and ground cinnamon. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. I prefer to portion out the servings into mason jars and then add toppings before eating the next morning.
Substitute ½ cup hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, or pumpkin seeds for the walnuts.
