Healthy Chia & Oat Pudding

I will start saying this again: if you don’t fancy complicated recipes, but you do like to eat healthy, than this post is definitely for you. Here is today’s deal: the other day I came across a “chia pudding” and I got marvelled with the fact that you can do a pudding with healthy ingredients and with zero preparation struggle.

I found this to be very exciting, because I come from a family to whom pudding is more or less like the king of desserts. However, recipes always include eggs and complicated tricks in the kitchen. Once I tried to do something we call “pudim flan” with caramel to a boyfriend of mine and the result was that I completely screw up the pan to a point that we could no longer use it. Can you imagine such thing?

So, going to what really matters here: I made a slight twist to the recipe I found and came up with a chia and oat pudding. Here are the ingredients that you will need:

  • chia seeds
  • oats
  • milk (I used almond milk; the original recipe used coconut milk)
  • honey (the original recipe used brown sugar)
  • cinnamon

Now you might be marvelled as I got when I tell you the steps. Here they are:

  1. in a bowl, put two thirds of a cup of milk and add a tea spoon of honey
  2. add some chia seeds and oats (half a cup with both, maybe… you know I’m the worse with dosing)
  3. mix everything altogether and make sure the honey, the seeds and oats are blending
  4. add cinnamon to your mixture, mix it up once again and…
  5. put the bowl in the fridge for two hours

The seeds and oats will absorb the milk. The honey and cinnamon will give a nice flavour to your pudding. Once your pudding became consistent, you can top it up with some fruits. This time I chose black-forest fruits, but I imagine that some peach would work really well too.
