Vanilla Chia Pudding
Pudding with tons of healthy nutrients? It does not get better than that! This creamy vanilla pudding reminds me of the after school snack I had many moons ago; except this is a much healthier version with no processed sugar or dairy.
Made with organic almond milk, chia seeds, pure vanilla extract and a dash of stevia, Vanilla Chia Pudding will satiate your cravings and give you a boost of energy (instead of the inevitable sugar crash that commercial processed puddings bring on).
Using fresh ingredients not only makes a difference in the nutrient content and in the taste, it also raises the energetic frequency of the food itself. Did you know that canned, boxed, or processed food is often more calorically dense, yet is virtually devoid of nutrients? The more nutrient dense foods we eat, the less we experience those bothersome cravings that often drive us to make poor food choices.
This pudding is full of chia seeds, a concentrated superfood which contains healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, and calcium. It’s hard to imagine a little seed packing such a nutritious punch. Chia seeds also contain essential fatty acids alpha-linolenic and linoleic acid; mucin; strontium’ vitamins A, B, E and D; and minerals, including sulphur, iron, iodine, magnesium, manganese, niacin and thiamine; and they’re a rich source of antioxidants. Now, that is one nutrient dense little seed!
Eating foods with as many nutrients as possible ensures that your body gets what it needs daily; bettering your mood, boosting your mind, and overall enhancing your life. It is always a good idea to eat an array of foods to get the full spectrum of nutrients needed, since our body requires different vitamins for different purposes.
Healthy Vanilla Pudding Recipe
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (use your favorite)
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Stevia to taste
- Place ingredients in container or bowl and mix well.
- Place covered in the refrigerator and mix every 1-2 hours until set. Mixing is important since the seeds will fall to the bottom of the container, if not shaken or stirred every now and then; and it won’t set properly.
- Keep refrigerated.
You can add in some blueberries to kick up the nutrient value and maximize your intake of antioxidants, which protect your body from free radicals.
A breakfast of vanilla pudding made with chia seeds is a great way to start the day off right. It also makes for a perfect frequency-raising, flavor-rich snack that’ll will wake up your taste buds and have them doing the happy dance!
