RECIPE: Simple Chia Pudding That's Simply Divine

Posted: 02/24/2013 8:56 am


Simplicity in the divine. That has been a theme in my life as of late, during this most recent period of change. I have found some great successes in all areas of my being without much complicated calculation. Life, in a word, has been kept quite "simple."

Now, simple is not the same as boring. Oh no. In this particular use of the word, simple simply means without confusion, without over-stimulation, and moving with ease.

And I think I can use the same definition to describe my next recipe. It's low maintenance, quick to assemble, and pretty hands off. Oh, and did I mention it tastes divine?

Chocolate Banana Chia Pudding
3/4 C Almond Milk
1/2 C Coconut Milk
2 1/2 T Raw Cacao
2 t Vanilla
1 t Cinnamon
4 T Chia
Liquid Stevia, coconut nectar, or maple syrup to taste
Shredded coconut
1 Banana sliced
Place all ingredients except chia, banana and shredded coconut in the blender. Blend until incorporated.
Pour mixture into a bowl and add in the chia seeds. Stir well so that all the seeds are moist and fully incorporated. Leave sit for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
