Yummy and Nutritious Chia Pudding
I have finally perfected my Chia Seed Pudding - at least to my taste anyway. The texture takes some getting used to, but I like that it is relatively low calorie and high in protein. I have 3 versions I rotate between.
Basic Vanilla Chia Pudding
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/3 cup chia seeds
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp sugar free vanilla Torani syrup
Mix ingredients together, whisking well to incorporate.
Stir well before serving.
Serve with the fruit of your choice. I like strawberries and blueberries.
If the pudding is not quite sweet enough for you, add some drops of liquid stevia or a pack of your favorite sweetener.
To make Chocolate Chia Pudding use sugar free chocolate Torani syrup and stir in 2 TBSP unsweetened cocoa.
For a peanut butter version, use the basic or chocolate recipe and stir in 1 TBSP of powdered peanut butter.
The basic version of the pudding makes 2 servings and has about 100 calories per serving and 6 grams of protein.
