Chai Chia Pudding for Breakfast

This is our new go to breakfast. Everyone agrees it’s a fav!

We all agree that it tastes great, but I also love how healthy and filling it is. I also like the fact that I can make it the night before and just blend it in the morning for a fast, raw, organic, high fiber, high protein breakfast.

I’ve tried a lot of chia pudding recipes throughout the last few years, and I had yet to like any of them. Mainly because the consistency always bothered me. Soaked chia seeds are a little too slimy for my taste. Once I figured out that I could throw the concoction in the blender after the seeds soaked, everything changed. Putting the pudding (so to speak) in the blender totally changes the consistency and now I love it.

This breakfast is really hard to beat nutritionally speaking, and trust me, it’s delicious!

If you don’t eat honey, just replace it with whatever sweetener you like.

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup Walnuts

1/2 Cup Almonds

2 Cups Water

1/3 Cup Raw Honey

1 Tbls Cinnamon

1/4 tsp Nutmeg

1/4 tsp Ginger

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 tsp Vanilla Bean Powder (worth buying – I use it all the time, and it lasts forever)

1/4 tsp Salt

3/4 Cup Chia Seeds

Directions:

Blend all the ingredients (minus the Chia Seeds) in a high speed blender.

Pour mixture over Chia Seeds. Let set for 2 hours, or overnight.

Pour mixture back in blender and blend until it develops a pudding-like consistency.

Top with whatever topping you choose (fruit, nuts, non-dairy whipped cream).

Enjoy!
