Lavender Chia Pudding Recipe

Nothing excites me more than waking up before dawn, practicing some yoga or going for a run then grabbing my chia seeds pudding that already awaits me.  This is one of the healthiest and most nourishing breakfast you can get!  Chia seeds are amongst the few trendy "superfoods" that are actuallly worthy of that term. They contain healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium. Check out the 10 health benefits of consuming these seeds at the end of the blog.

Materials used

Measuring Cups/Teaspoon/Tablespoon/Saucepan/Wire-mesh strainer/Bowl

Sealed Glass Jars (bought our cute color-coded jars from Walmart for less than $3 each).

Ingredients [for 2 servings]

We bought everything from Trader Joe’s

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbs dried culinary-grade lavender buds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3 dates
  • 1 tbs agave sweetener (optional; in lieu of dates)
  • 1 cup of blueberries
  • Toppings: coconut flakes/chips, sliced almonds, berries

Prep Time [10 mins]

1. Add the coconut milk to a saucepan and add the lavender buds once simmered. Cover the saucepan and let the lavender sit in the liquid for about 10 mins. Pour the milk into a bowl using the strainer to separate the liquid from the buds. Let the bowl cool for about 15-20 mins in the fridge.

2. Add the liquid, the dates, blueberries, and the vanilla extract to your blender. Blend until you reach a creamy texture.  Now add in the chia seeds and blend for a few seconds more. Pour mix into your jar(s) and refrigerate overnight for best results or wait at least 1 hr (for the seeds to thicken).

3. Add your chosen toppings and enjoy!
