Chia seed pudding bowl
It's no secret that I have a thing for chia bowls.
Chia bowls are easy to make, the main thing to remember is to overnight the chia seeds.
The first step in any bowl is to overnight the seeds. Do this by covering 3 tablespoons of organic seeds with 1 cup of almond, hemp or oat milk and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. That way, the seeds become thick and a perfect consistency for your bowls.
When soaked overnight, chia seeds expand into a gelatinous texture which work well as a base to mix in fruit and nuts to create a delicious meal or snack.
A great pudding substitute is this delicious and truly indulgent recipe.
Use a cup of frozen chopped mango and blend with the overnighted chia seeds, one teaspoon of cold milled flaxseed and one teaspoon of dessicated coconut.
Blend until smooth, then add one tablespoon of raw cacao powder. Then blend until creamy and serve with a sprinkle of almonds.
Once you have a smooth bowl, all that's left is presentation!
I love using a cracked coconut for that extra... pizzaz!
