I have made chia pudding a few times. Depending on the recipe I used, depends on the chia to liquid ratio. Usually, I enjoy the chia pudding but find the consistency to be too thin for my liking. Lately, I have been into thick foods like super thick smoothies that they can be eaten with a spoon, super thick oats that there’s more yogurt in it than oats or very little almond milk, and now this super thick chia pudding. I like the thick consistency because it feels like I’m eating more, more volume.
Of all the chia puddings I have tried, this one has been my absolute favorite! The consistency was perfect! I think the coconut flour definitely helped.
This recipe was adapted from here:
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 mashed banana (save other 1/2 for topping)
- liquid vanilla stevia, to taste
- 1 tbsp coconut flour
- Combine chia seeds almond milk, 1/2 mashed banana, and stevia in a bowl.
- Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- In the morning, stir in coconut flour and other toppings.
For my toppings, I added the other 1/2 of the banana slices, strawberries, and shredded coconut. You can also add things like other fruits, nuts, seeds, nut butter, coconut oil/butter, etc.
I love that you can make the basic thick chia pudding, then create different flavors with the toppings so your not eating the same thing every time 🙂
