I can't believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve! (Here in Sweden we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve instead of Christmas day). I'm so so happy that I'm going to spend the entire Christmas weekend with my boyfriend and then we both have next week off from work. Woho!
Ok, so this chia pudding is the perfect breakfast or snack around Christmas as it's filled with Christmassy spices like cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and cloves. Chia seeds are also chock full of healthy fibres which will give your stomach a nice break from all the sugary Christmas treats.
Chia seeds have this amazing ability to absorb large amounts of liquid. So if you put chia seeds in some milk they will absorb all the liquid and you get a sort of healthy pudding. They are very bland in taste though, so make sure to add some flavours from spices, fruits, berries, cacao etc.
A Merry Merry Christmas to you all!
Christmas Chia Pudding
3 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup (2 dl) plant milk (I used oat)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
Pinch of vanilla powder
1 tsp date syrup, maple syrup or coconut sugar (or sweetener of choice)
Put all the ingredients in a glass jar. Put on the lid and shake thoroughly. Wait for a few minutes and shake again. Put the jar in the fridge for at least 1 hour or overnight (until all the milk is absorbed). Pour into a bowl and top with sliced fruit and/or berries. Enjoy!
... And listen to this!
