Chia Seed Fig Pudding Recipe
2 cups coconut milk or almond milk (homemade or natural)
½ cup Chia Seeds
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup (or less) maple syrup (or sub any sweetener) or stevia to taste
Optional: ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or cardamon powder
For Blended/Smooth Version: Place all ingredients in blender and blend on high for 1-2 minutes until completely smooth.
For Whole Chia Seed Version: Blend all ingredients except chia seeds in a blender until smooth (including any added flavors, fruits or chocolate). Whisk in chia seeds.
Pour mixture into a jar or glass container and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight to let gel. I prefer to make this at night to have ready for a fast breakfast the next day. It is also great to make in the morning for a delicious pre-made dessert at night.
