Leslie turned me on to chia seed pudding a few weeks ago, and I liked it. I decided to try make it myself when coworker Connie left a bag of chia seeds on her desk to share.
Not only did I mooch the seeds off of Connie, but I also mooched the almond milk and the almonds from Leslie. The only things I had to pay $$$ for were the bananas and the greek yogurt.
Chia seeds are so bizarre to me. How can these guys plump up with liquid, yah?
I followed the recipe from here. Basically, you combine 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 cup plain 2% greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/4 cup chia seeds. You put it in the 'fridge overnight and can enjoy the pudding the next morning with some fruits.
I actually made the pudding twice. The second time I used this agave sweetener instead of the maple syrup.
My pudding came out just okay. Now that I've used up all the seeds that I mooched, I don't think I'll be making any more.
