Chia Seed Pudding

GF, V

At work we have a chia pet, which is something of a mascot for our office, and it started balding a couple of weeks ago.  To remedy the situation a coworker bought a giant bag of chia seeds, but then we started to wonder what else we could do with the seeds. That’s when I said they’re a healthy food full of omega-3 fats and fiber.  So I took it upon myself to create a delicious recipe to show them what I meant.

Chia Seed Pudding
1 c greek yogurt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 c almond milk
2 tbs maple syrup
1/4 c chia seeds
1 pint blueberries
1/2 tbs sugar
1/4 c slivered almonds, toasted

In a medium bowl whisk the almond milk, yogurt, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir in the chia seeds. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

The next day, in a medium bowl, toss the berries with sugar. Mix in the almonds.

Spoon the pudding into 4 bowls or glasses; mound the berry mixture on top and serve.
