It's March 23rd and guess what day it is? National Chia Seed day! My sister and I enjoy adding chia seeds to our meals any day of the week, but today, we celebrated National Chia Seed day by making a bowl of decadent chocolate chia seed pudding for breakfast. We created this delicious recipe by using our favorite chia seeds by Mamma Chia, which are organic, Non-GMO certified, and of highest quality, resulting in a delicious, nutrient dense recipe that is packed with flavor and super-foods, making the ideal grab-n-go breakfast or snack.
So what's so great about chia seeds? Chia seeds became all the rage several years back because of their incredible nutritional value, and they continue to hold that status--rightly so. Chia seeds are known for their healing abilities and energizing powers, and they're versatile to use in recipes, making them a wonderful addition to smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt, granola, salads, and even homemade snacks. Here are some of the reasons we love chia seeds:
Total time: 24 hours Serves: 1-2
1. Whisk together the cashew milk, maple syrup, maca powder, cinnamon, vanilla, and sea salt. Next, gradually whisk in the cacao powder.
2. Gradually add the chia seeds to the milk, stirring slowly to avoid clumping. Mix thoroughly.
3. Cover and place mixture in the fridge overnight, or at least 6 hours before serving (the chia pudding consistency should be thick). Top with fresh fruit, nuts, and seeds, or your favorite toppings and enjoy.
