Chia Seed Pudding

Chia has gained recent popularity for good reason; these little seeds are nutrient powerhouses — high in protein, fiber and anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Including chia seeds in your diet can deliver a healthy breakfast or afternoon energy boost because chia is associated with vitality and satiety due to the balance in fat, fiber and protein they contain. Chia absorbs water and expands, so if you enjoy the consistency of tapioca or rice pudding, this is a great snack for you.

2 Tbs. chia seeds
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 Tbs. sliced or slivered almonds
1 Tbs. dried, unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup unsweetened dried cranberries or raisins or blueberries
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon or cardamom
1/2 tsp agave, honey or maple syrup (or to taste)

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl or jar with a small whisk.  Let sit refridgerated or at room temperature for 20-30 minutes, until desired texture is achieved and mixture has thickened. If chia pudding is too thick, add more almond milk one teaspoon at a time.
