Easy Chia Seed Pudding

How to make chia seed pudding Did you know that I'm a big-time pudding lover? You might not guess it because you don't see too many pudding recipes on the blog (except this rice pudding, which I still love). I've had many pudding disasters. I don't know what it is, but puddings and custards are difficult for me. I'm still learning. :) And that's one reason I was interested in trying out chia seed pudding ever since I saw it in on Danielle's blog. You just stir the seeds in and wait?! Does that really work?Super easy pudding recipeI was also worried that this might taste too healthy, if you know what I mean. I like that it's super healthy for you, don't get me wrong. But to me pudding is a dessert, so it's gotta satisfy my sweet tooth. I check around for other chia seed recipes and really liked this one and also this one. And I figured if you can make a chocolate version, or if kids are loving this, then it must be pretty good. So, I gave it a try. Here's how I made my versions.Chia seed pudding recipeVanilla vegan pudding!Vanilla Chia Pudding, makes one serving.

2 tablespoons chia seeds
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
a pinch of salt
1 tablespoon honey

In a small bowl or jar combine the first four ingredients. Give it a good stir and refrigerate for at least one hour. After the first thirty minutes give the mixture a stir, so it doesn't clump together. Once you're ready to eat, stir in the honey (add more if you don't think it's sweet enough) and top with your favorite fruit or chopped nuts.Chocolate vegan pudding!Pom wonderfulChocolate Chia Pudding, makes one serving.

I thought the chocolate pudding needed a bit more sweetener than the vanilla. Top with your favorite fruit or chopped nuts. I highly recommend pomegranate seeds and roasted almonds, but you do what you will.How to make chia seed puddingI had anticipated liking the chocolate version best. I'm a chocolate lover. But I actually preferred the vanilla. Despite its alien appearance. :) If you've never tried chia pudding before, or if you'd like to find a slightly more healthy dessert option (even for you chocolate lovers out there), give this a try. It might surprise you. Enjoy! xo. Emma
