4-Ingredient Chia Seed Pudding
Chia pudding is an excellent omega-3 and fiber-rich breakfast option for when you're in a rush. Using kefir instead of other milk options is a great way to change things up and increase those good-for-the-gut probiotics. Have fun with the recipe and add toppings of your choice!
- 9 Tbsp chia seeds (or 1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp)
- 3 cups plain kefir
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup (adjust depending on how sweet you want it)
- Toppings optional: fresh fruit, nut butter, nuts, cacao nibs, etc.
In a large jar or bowl, mix chia seeds with ground cinnamon.
In a separate bowl or measuring cup, mix kefir with maple syrup. Pour over chia seeds and stir together well.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
Once mixture has become a pudding-like texture, remove from fridge. Give everything a good stir, then portion into jars/bowls, and add toppings as desired.
*To make a larger portion, simply increase with a 3:1 chia seed to kefir ratio
*Because the pudding will keep for about 5 days in the fridge, I like to make a large batch to portion out for the week!
*Feel free to add more maple syrup if this recipe isn't sweet enough for you
