The Best Healthy Chia Pudding
Chia pudding is like tapioca pudding's healthy cousin. It has that delicious creamy bubbly texture yet also packs a nutritious punch. Chia seeds are super at lowering blood sugar levels and creating more insulin sensitivity. Pair this pudding with some nuts and vitamin-rich fruits and you have yourself a super breakfast, snack or dessert!
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup unsweetened greek yogurt
2 tbsp date syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of kosher salt
1/4 cup chia seeds, divided in half - into 1/8 cup and 1/8 cup
Whisk almond milk, greek yogurt, date syrup, vanilla extract, and pinch of kosher salt together gently. Whisk in 1/8 cup chia seeds and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Add in remaining 1/8 cup of chia seeds and gently whisk again until seeds are evenly distributed. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
