Time: 10 minutes, + overnight soaking
1 cup chia seeds
5 cups almond milk
2 tsp. maple syrup
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup frozen banana
1 cup frozen peaches
Add the chia seeds, almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla to a jar or bowl and mix well. Let settle for 3-5 minutes, then stir again, breaking up any chunks. Cover the mixture and let sit in the fridge overnight, or at least 4 hours.
The next morning, stir the chia mixture before using. Use 1/3 of the chia mixture to blend with 1 cup of banana. Layer in the bottom of the desired serving glasses.
Spoon about 1/3 cup of the original chia mixture onto the banana layer.
Blend the remaining chia mixture with the peaches. Add this to the top of the chia pudding.
Top with shredded unsweetened coconut flakes, fruit, berries, or crushed nuts.
Serve immediately or store in the fridge 2-3 days.
Health tip: Chia seeds contain fiber, protein, fat, omega-3s, calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus along with other vitamins and minerals. They are loaded with antioxidants which help reduce the risk of disease. They also help you feel full for longer and reduce blood sugar levels.
Tip: Add more liquid to the blender, or more ice, to adjust consistency to your liking!
