Overnight Chia Pudding

Overnight Chia Pudding

Chia seeds are one of those Super Food everyone is talking about nowadays. They are good for you on so many different levels: lose weight (as they help you feel full), balance blood sugar, reduce cholesterol (as they provide Omega 3), keep you young (as they are anti-oxidants), and many more.

I regularly incorporate them into my salads, cookies, yogurts to add extra creaminess and crunchiness (as well). The other day I decided to try make with them a super easy overnight pudding. All you need is full fat soy milk and, of course a good handful of chia seeds!

Here is the recipes my lovely foodies 🙂

Ingredients (serves 3):

  • 1/5 cup unsweetened soy milk
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • Fresh fruit (berries, peaches, raspberries, …)
  • Sliced almonds or crashed walnuts

Grab some unsweetened, full fat soy milk
