Vanilla Chai Chia Seed Pudding
























It tastes just like a creamy chai tea. This is an incredibly easy recipe and convenient to take with you on the go. I like to make mine in a mason jar and screw on the lid so I can toss it in my purse when the morning gets busy. 

Healthy benefits of chia seeds …"they add fiber to your diet and are loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids which are great for your brain, heart and skin. Chia seeds have a high source of Calcium, Manganese and Phosphorus all of which support healthy bones and teeth. They are chock-full of protein and can fight belly fat" according to The Huffington Post. Sign me up!

Ingedients
1/3 cup chia seeds
1 cup cold milk (or almond milk is you prefer non-dairy)
2 tbsp. condensed milk (or 1 tsp stevia for a healthier option)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. cardamom
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of allspice
pinch of glove

Directions
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl or large cup. Let sit for 15 minutes to activate the natural gel that surrounds the seeds. Simple as that.

*I like to eat mine cold so I suggest placing it the the refrigerator until you want to eat it. You can also heat it up if you prefer it hot.
