I made you some pudding. Not real pudding though. I mean, sort of real pudding. But not.
You know what I mean.
So, I don’t like chia pudding. You know, the regular kind of chia pudding where you let the chia seeds sit in the milk and form a gel, and then you eat it just like that. No thank you. I can’t handle the slimy, seedy texture. It kind of freaks me out. But I have been determined to figure out a way to eat this stuff because I know how amazing chia seeds are for our health (high protein, antioxidants, omega-3s, etc.). So, after some perusing through Pinterest (aka, my happy place), I saw that people have started to put their slimy chia pudding into the blender. GENIUS! How did I not think of this!? These super clever people have officially made my day.
I was sitting here trying to figure out what flavor I wanted to make my pudding, and of course, the chocolate/PB combo came to mind, my favorite combo in the world. I mean, I don’t think I can be any more predictable. But I’m okay with that. Everyone loves chocolate and peanut butter, right? I though so.
Let’s eat our peanut butter cups from a cup. Or a jar, or a bowl. Whatever floats your boat.
I’ve been putting chia seeds in things like smoothies, granola and muffins for a while now, and now I’m jumping on the chia pudding bandwagon. It’s fine, I like bandwagons that are tasty.
You can eat this protein packed pudding (say that 5 times fast) for breakfast, dessert, or a nice little afternoon snack. It hits the spot, and keeps you full and satisfied. You can get creative and throw whatever toppings you’d like on top. I like to slice up a banana to go along with mine, but chocolate chips, extra peanut butter, or even coconut would be good.
Get crazy with the toppings and treat yo self.
