Breakfast Love: Chia and Oat Pudding

Standard

The whole family is crushing on chia pudding at the moment.  It is delish!

I am loving that I have found this for my little boys.  When it comes to breakfast they seem like empty vessels.  It is not unusual for them both to devour a large bowl of cereal and a huge green smoothie or  toast and still be asking, “When is Morning Tea?” This seems to fill them up and keep them satisfied for longer, not to mention, it is a whole heap better for them than store-bought cereal.

There are heaps of amazing recipes and variations of chia pudding on the net.  I plan on making my way through a fair few of them, but for the moment we have these two lovelies in the fridge…..

Chia and Oat Pudding

Vanilla and Chocolate Chia and Oat Puddings.

These were a bit of an experiment. I didn’t follow a recipe. This is how I made them……

Placed into a jar:

1/2 cup chia seeds

3/4 cup of oats

2 1/2 cups milk

2 tsp vanilla

1 tbs Natvia

1 tbs raw cacao (added for chocolate puddings)

Shake thoroughly and allow to sit in the fridge for 30 minutes before shaking thoroughly again.  Leave to refrigerate overnight.

We have been serving these with fresh blueberries and occasionally a sprinkle of sunflower seeds if we feel we need the ‘crunch factor.’

Yummo!
