This is one of my new favorites! It’s like oatmeal but without the oats, the seeds soak up the milk so it does get thicker. This is a nutritious protein filled breakfast. 1 ounce of Chia Seeds has almost 5 grams of protein. I like a lot in mine so I usually use 2-3 ounces. This literally tastes like pudding. I use the Lakanto brand maple syrup because it is sugar free without the chemicals and toxins that are usually in sugar free foods. From what I researched this brand is also vegan, gluten free, gmo free, and has a low glycemic index. I don’t make money by promoting Lakanto’s name either, it is a brand that I researched and actually like the taste so I would rather have anyone to choose a good brand of Monk Fruit than regular sugar. This actually tastes like regular maple syrup, maybe a tad bit sweeter. If you know of any of brands please share!
Ingredients: (Preferably Organic)
- 1 Mason Jar, or bowl with lid, or you can use just a cup/bowl and put a small plate over it.
- Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk
- Lakanto Maple syrup or Lakanto Sugar or even Stevia would work
This is how I do it:
I take a bowl and put in about 2-3 ounces of chia seeds (the more the merrier), then I take the unsweetened vanilla milk and pour it over the seeds(I pour until a half inch over the seeds), I put like a tablespoon of syrup over the milk and seeds and mix with spoon, then I add a handful or more of blueberries over all of that, put a lid over it and let it sit over night and its ready to eat in the morning.
Note: When using the syrup, be careful so you don’t make it too sweet, you can always add more in the morning. If you like the sugar then you can sprinkle a couple teaspoons over the milk and seeds. And when using the stevia I am not sure how much because I don’t like the taste so I don’t use it often but I know it’s strong.
