GLO Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Updated: Mar 26, 2020

Chia Seeds: Nature’s little powerhouse, are an amazing super-food providing calcium, alkalizing, easily absorbed protein, and anti-aging antioxidants. If you are wondering, yes, this is where the famous Chia pet came from! Chia seeds are also high in omega-3 fatty acids which are much needed for optimal energy levels, heart health, brain health, and burning fat. Their high fibre content helps to stabilize blood sugar and suppress hunger. Ch-ch-ch-chia!


Mmmmmm…a healthy, nutrient dense breakfast, snack, or dessert that will provide you with sustainable energy.  An excellent source of protein and essential fatty acids. ingredients:

2 tbsp chia seeds

1 cup unsweetened almond, or cashew milk

1-2 Tbsp maple syrup

1⁄2 tsp real vanilla extract

1⁄4 ground cinnamon

1/4 ground nutmeg

1/4 ground ginger

Toppings:  fresh fruit, and/or fresh coconut, and/or fresh mint.

Variation: Instead of adding cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, add 1 tsp of raw, organic cocoa powder or carob powder for a chocolate chia pudding.

Preparation: Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and set aside for 15 minutes so the chia seeds can do their chia magic. Abra-ca-dabra…..they will soak up the moisture and turn into a pudding consistency. Chill (if you can wait!) then serve.

Top with fresh berries of choice , and/or fresh mint leaves, and/or sprinkle fresh grated coconut on top. I like to serve it in a martini glass!
