I was a little late to the wagon on this one. Everyone was talking about Chia Pudding but I kept putting it off unsure if I would like it or not. This is where my kids remind me how I preach that they should always try everything once.
Yeah, well. I should have tried this a long time ago!
A while ago, we went to my sister-in-law Sarika’s place for brunch and one of the things she had made was Chia pudding with fruit and granola. It was pretty darn good! So I stopped dragging my feet and decided to make my own at home.
I played around with flavors and the best part is you can pretty much add any fruit and nut to this. Our favorite so far is the pistachio pomegranate combination. The sweet, the salty, the creamy and crunchy just have this perfect balance with each other that I cannot get enough of. It keeps the pudding light enough yet still so healthy! YUM!
Not only is it delicious, but healthy too! They are:
Rich in omega 3 fatty acids
Try it out and let me know what you think!
From my kitchen to yours, I hope you enjoy this delicious Pomegranate Pistachio Chia Pudding!
8 oz Almond Coconut Milk (or any milk of your preference)
4 Tbsp Chia Seeds
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 c pomegranate arils
2-3 Tbsp pistachios, roughly chopped
In an airtight glass jar, add the milk, chia seeds, salt, and vanilla extract. Mix really well either with a spoon or by tightening the lid and shaking the jar. The seeds do tend to clump up so make sure you mix until there is no clumping.
Store in the refrigerator overnight or at least 2 hours to let it gelatinize.
Divide the pudding between two bowls. Top with pomegranate arils and chopped pistachios. Enjoy cold!
**I prefer to keep mine refrigerated overnight but this pudding is edible after it has been in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
**You can absolutely double or triple this batch with the same results. If I'm doing a big batch, I'll store it in a larger container and take out my preferred amount each day. Chia pudding will last up to 4 days in the fridge once made.
