RECIPE: cinnamon chia pudding

I've always loved chia seeds and I love adding them to puddings and shakes to bulk them up. This morning I put together very few ingredients to create such a basic, delicious, and all-day-stick-to-your-ribs kind of breakfast.

I'm not exaggerating when I say I wasn't hungry until the afternoon ...

Cinnamon Chia Pudding
1/4 cup dry chia seeds
1/2 cup (or more) coconut water (or nut mylk)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup (depending on your taste; non raw)
1 tablespoon raw almond butter

Place the chia seeds in a bowl and cover with liquid. Allow the chia seeds to soak up the liquid, stirring every few minutes to incorporate everything. Once the liquid is soaked, add the remaining ingredients and stir. I threw mine in a blender and added just a touch more coconut water and blended until smooth. Throw in some blueberries, granola, and maybe another shake of cinnamon and EN JOY !!

This works wonderfully in the morning and takes minimal effort. You can let the seeds soak while you get your fabulous self ready.

Chia seeds are an amazing superfood with incredible protein and omega benefits. The long lasting satiety of the seeds is also one of the best attributes of these tiny guys.
