I really have trouble getting these chia puddings to turn out right. Too thin, too thick, not enough flavor, etc. This time I messed up because I didn’t have plain yogurt. I did have some organic vanilla greek yogurt. This yogurt is sweetened, so I thought I could skip the added sweetener. Wrong! It was so sour without added sweetener. I’m not very good at remembering to taste as I make and adjust. Gordon Ramsey would send me home right away! I will try this again and make sure it is sweet enough to enjoy. Otherwise the flavors were good, although it turned out pretty thick.
Tropical Chia Breakfast
1/4 c skim yogurt (greek is best)
2 Tbsp coconut milk
1 small banana
1 round of pineapple
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 tsp vanilla
8 drops of liquid stevia (or other sweetener of choice)
Prepare the night before to give the seeds time to swell and become pudding-like. In a blender or magic/nutri bullet, combine all of the ingredients except the chia seeds. Blend until incorporated. Stir in the chia seeds. Pour into a bowl or jar, cover and let sit in the fridge overnight.
