Chia pudding makes for a great breakfast because it is tasty and satisfying. I love incorporating chia seeds into my yogurts and smoothies. This recipe literally takes 2 minutes to make and you can bring this with you to work, school, the gym- anywhere!
This is the perfect recipe to make the night before and enjoy for breakfast. I love eating something healthy like this for breakfast because it sets the pace for the rest of the day. I’m most likely going to continue to eat a healthy, well-balanced meal for lunch and dinner if I start the day with something nutritious. Moreover, this recipe makes for the perfect mid-day snack or late night dessert.
You may be wondering how exactly is this so healthy? Well, for starters, kefir is like a drinkable yogurt and it is super good for you. It is a cultured milk made with bacteria and yeast which tastes a bit sour and tangy. It is loaded with calcium, B Vitamins, and phosphorous while also helping to aid with digestion. Also, the ground cinnamon in this recipe is a major health booster because it is known for regulating blood sugar, igniting brain function, and protecting against diabetes. Just a small amount of cinnamon a day can make a huge difference. I would recommend using cinnamon wherever you can- sprinkle in your coffee, smoothies, yogurts, or even soups and stews.
For this recipe you will need:
4 Tbsp chia seeds
3 Tbsp plain Kefir
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
Regular almond milk, as needed
Simply combine the chia seeds, kefir, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon into a mason jar or container that seals tightly. Pour the almond milk into the jar until it is full. Give it a stir and seal. Store in the refrigerator overnight or at least a few hours so the liquid can be absorbed and form a gel-like consistency. Hope you love this quick, delicious recipe as much as I do!
