3/4 cup Chia seeds
2 1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cup almond milk
2/3 teaspoon salt
optional toppings: bananas, mangos, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, mulberries, Goji berries, raisins, chopped apricots… the list is endless, just anything that you and your family like.
Put the Chia seeds and water in a bowl and stir regularly. When the Chia seeds have absorbed most of the water, add the milk and the salt in and continue stirring regularly and it will be ready in few minuets.
You can also add seasoning such as cinnamon or vanilla. This recipe is a great base which you can play with to find out what you and your family like best.
Personally, I prefer to make a big recipe that lasts for 3-4 days. I put a perfect serving size for one person in glass jars and keep them ready in the fridge.
Then the only thing I need to do in the mornings, is to chop down some fruits, add some berries on top and pour the milk in and I have healthy breakfast ready for the whole family in only a couple of minuets.
If you still have cravings for sugary snacks in the afternoon, after this breakfast, I suggest that you get some good quality, raw vegan protein powder and add it to your chia pudding; like hemp, pea or sprouted rice protein. One tablespoon per person should be enough. That way you have added even more high quality protein to your breakfast and it will keep you fuller for longer.
This will help keep you away from any cravings for sweets you might get in the afternoon! You might want to add a little bit more milk to the pudding if you choose to put the protein powder in there as well.
