Triple Almond Chia Pudding

TOTAL SHARES 273

So, you guys know how I have a toddler right? Well, toddlers are a little bit insane eaters.

One day, he loves broccoli, the next day he can’t even hear the word. One day, it’s peanuts and raisins for a snack, the next day it is insulting to offer such a disgusting combination.

There are only a couple things that consistently pass the toddler test around here: anything with coconut milk, curry, cumin, pretty much any kind of fruit, a particular vegetarian bowl from Chipotle, every variety of nuts, smoothies (for the most part), toasted seaweed and crackers ?!?

The more occasionally than not would are: carrots, dates, tomatoes, hummus, pretzels, green beans, anything Indian flavors, quinoa, rice and beans (that isn’t from Chipotle) and this Chia Seed Pudding.

Everything else is a crap shoot and pretty much like playing the lottery. You just never know when you are going to win.

Well, this pudding is a winner right now so I am running with it. Any minute and it will be the most offensive thing I could ever offer my son and he will say something like, “No pudding. No more. NO! Don’t like that anymore!”  Between you and me, I’m sort of looking forward to that day because  then it will for just for Mommy and I may just spike it with almond liquor.

NOTES:

  • If you like Tapioca, you will LOVE this. If you have issues with textures and avoid Tapioca or Bubble Tea for that reason, then this may not be for you.

    Yum! So many of my friends at school eat this for breakfast — it’s delicious if you soak the chia seeds overnight (in almond milk, hazelnut milk, coconut milk, hemp milk, or whatever you prefer) and then in the morning you can add berries or other fruit. It is delicious! It it is a great source of protein and omega-3s. Also, instead of vanilla extract, I love boiling vanilla beans, adding maple syrup, and then mixing it into the pudding. It’s delish!

      Yes, sometimes I do a combo of Chia and Oats and have it for breakfast (soaked in almond milk). The boiled vanilla beans and maple syrup sounds amazing. It was so nice to meet you this weekend Rosia :)

      I know – I saw that when you posted your version a few weeks ago. Not surprised that we do it the same! 😉
