Fruit-Topped Chia

Lori Eanes | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 4 people

Chia seeds are packed with protein, fiber, antioxidants and calcium. Adding liquid gives the seeds a consistency similar to tapioca. Almond extract and fruit lend this meal a dessert-like flavor, without any added sugar.

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk chia seeds with almond milk, extract, cinnamon and dates until incorporated. Cover, and refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours. Stir well.
  2. Spoon into bowls, and top with fruit, nuts and coconut. Chia pudding is best fresh but can be refrigerated for up to 3–4 days.
