Chia Pudding and Chia Jam ~ Gluten Free ~ Dairy Free ~ Sugar Free ~ Low Carb
Here is my recipe for the Chia Pudding and Jam:
Vanilla Chia Breakfast Pudding ~ Dairy Free ~ Gluten Free ~ Sugar Free
In a medium bowl whisk together:
2/3 Cups Chia Seeds (I used Bobs red Mill)
2 Cups Unsweetened Almond Milk (Or any Milk of your choice)
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Whisk for 2-3 Minutes
Let sit for 10 Minutes
Whisk for about 20 more seconds
Cover the Bowl and place in the Refrigerator
Keep refrigerated for at least 4 hours or overnight, the Chia Seeds will absorb the liquid.
I do not add any sweetener to the Pudding. The fruits that I add have enough sweetness for my taste.
If your want it sweeter add some honey when your whisking it together.
In the morning spoon a serving into a bowl
You can serve it cold or warmed up. I prefer it warm.
Top with anything of your choice
I top mine with a variety of Fresh, Frozen or Dried fruits or my homemade jam, Nuts and Seed Mix and sometimes Cacao Nibs and or Cinnamon.
I buy my Nuts and Seeds at Trader Joes. I find there prices are the best.
In a small bowl I mix together
All unsalted and roasted:
and any nuts of your choice that have been chopped up
Sprinkle on desired amount of Nut mixture and Fruit or Jam.
This makes 4-5 servings
Recipe for Chia Jam ~ Cranberry Blueberry Jam:
I add desired amount of the fruit to a sauce pan and cook over medium high heat which releases the juices and pops the Berries. If they are sticking to the
pan add a little bit of water. Using a spoon to mix.
Cook until desired consistency. Sprinkle on Cinnamon to taste, if you want it sweet add about 2 TBL Raw Honey then added 2 TBL Chia Seeds to thicken it.
Pour into a bowl or Mason Jar and refrigerate. This can be made with any frozen berries or Peaches.
