Overnight Chia Seed Pudding (Plant-Based)

Chia seeds may be having a "moment" in the health food world right now, but they've been around for centuries, playing a big role in the Mayan and Aztec diets. So what's the big deal? Well, they're chock-full of nutrients. They've got omega-3 fatty acids which help reduce inflammation and can improve cognitive performance. They contain plenty of fiber to regulate your bowel movements and help lower your cholesterol.  And they're rich in antioxidants - which are shown to improve age-related eye disease and may reduce risk of premature skin aging.

Given all the nutritional benefits of this gluten-free seed, it shouldn't be all that surprising to learn "chia" actually means "strength" in the Mayan language.  

In addition to its superfood benefits, chia seeds can be made into a delicious breakfast pudding. Chia seed pudding is perfect for those mornings when you're craving sweet over savory. And it's super simple to make:

Servings: 2-3

Ingredients

2 cups almond milk (unsweetened)
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup 

Optional:

Sliced raw almonds and choice of fruit for topping

Directions

Combine almond milk, chia seeds, vanilla, and syrup in a bowl. Mix well until combined (it'll start to thicken). Cover and store in the fridge overnight. It will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days.
