I've been experimenting with different types of chia puddings for a bit and this was too delicious not to share. Another plus is that just about everyone I know could it eat! It's vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, chocolate-free, has no refined sugars, and is nutrient dense to boot! Perhaps I'll try a grapefruit flavor next and see how it does.
Lemon Drop Chia Pudding
- 1 can of coconut milk (I used full fat)
- Juice and zest of 1 organic lemon (if you're using the peel it's best to get organic)
- 1/3c chia seeds
- Sweeten to taste (I used about 1/4 cup of maple syrup)
- 1t Vanilla extract.
It'll take about an hour to fully soak up the liquid and won't solidify until it's been chilled for a bit longer. It's delicious for days - although I can't honestly attest to longer than a couple as it's never lasted longer in our house.
