Chia Seeds! Cinnamon-Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds seem to be the new healthy fad out there now. I was at Whole Foods yesterday and I have walked by these Chia seeds for weeks and finally gave in and bought a bag of these babies! I am going to try to whip up some Chia pudding tonight before I head off to NYC. I hope its as yummy as it looks below. Do any of you have any Chia seed recipes I should try? Send them my way!

Cinnamon-Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Serves 2

1 cup non-dairy milk, any kind you like (I like plain, unsweetened almond milk)

3 tablespoons chia seeds

1-2 packets stevia (more or less to taste)*

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 small pinch sea salt

Stir together all ingredients in a small bowl; refrigerate until it reaches your desired thickness, stirring occasionally.  (I usually chill mine about 2 hours, but overnight is fine.)

*Instead of stevia, you can use any sweetener you like in this recipe, such as maple syrup, honey, etc.  Here is a guideline on how sweet 1 packet of stevia is:  the amount of stevia in 1 packet measures 1/2 teaspoon, which is about as sweet as 2 to 3 teaspoons of regular sugar.Image
