I have been trying to eat better, and in turn give my family more tasty healthy foods to eat. The main problem is that I enjoy simple plan foods, and the majority of the household prefers salt/fried/processed. Slowly I'm turning them around, but it hasn't been easy.
My first experiment with Chia seeds was this no cook pudding. I first read about this idea on the One Hungry Mama website .
I tweaked it a bit. Instead of the honey I used 5 drops of vanilla stevia.
Instead of the cup of coconut milk, I used half a cup of lite coconut milk and half a cup of water.
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk and 4 tablespoons of organic chia seeds. After overnight it hadn't set up enough, so I added 2 more tablespoons and waited another 12 hours before tasting.
Mixed together it looked like this
Overnight in the fridge it looked like this
I enjoyed the texture and the taste. It had just a hint of vanilla and sweetness. Does have the consistency of tapioca with a bit of a crunch. I probably would put a few more drops of stevia into it. My food nutrition breakdown for half a cup is 118 calories, 9 g of carbs, 7 g of fat, 5 g protein, 7 g of fiber and 46 g sodium.
A winner in my book!
