Fruit-Topped Chia Pudding

Chia seeds are packed with protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium. Adding liquid gives the seeds a consistency similar to tapioca. Almond extract and fruit lend this meal a dessert-like flavor, without any added sugar.

 

 

 

Ingredients:

 

  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • ¾ teaspoon almond extract
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 5 pitted dates, finely chopped
  • 1 cup sliced, fresh pineapple (or other fruit)
  • ¼ cup toasted and chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup toasted coconut flakes

 

 

Directions:

 

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk chia seeds with almond milk, extract, cinnamon and dates until incorporated. Cover, and refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours. Stir well.
  2. Spoon into bowls, and top with fruit, nuts, and coconut. Chia pudding is best fresh but can be refrigerated for up to 3–4 days.
