With school back in session and the holiday season right around the corner, fall is a busy time of year!
Here at For Wellness, our goal is to make your healthy routine as simple as possible. That’s why we love to share recipes you can make in advance and grab from your fridge in the morning.
Plus, the more you make these chia pots, the faster you'll get at throwing everything in a jar and chucking it in the fridge.
Chia Seeds Sound Weird, Do I Really Have to Eat Them?
We won't force you, but we have good reason for suggesting you at least give these guys a try.
You see, much like The Good Stuff™, chia seeds are full of things that support your body.
In particular, they're a great source of fiber, which helps with cholesterol management, as well as heart and digestive health.
Chia seeds are also high in omega-3 fatty acids, which help keep your cells healthy - especially those in your brain!
Inspired by the recipe from Minimalist Baker, we've supercharged this chia seed pudding with the addition of The Good Stuff™ Focus for extra energy, better focus, and a delicious mocha flavor!
Let's get stuck in.
What you'll need:
- 2 scoops of The Good Stuff™ Focus (or The Good Stuff™ if that's what you have)
- 1-2 tbsp of organic maple syrup
- ½ tsp of ground cinnamon
- 1 pinch of sea salt
- ½ tsp of vanilla extract
- 1 ½ cups milk or milk alternative
- ½ cup of chia seeds
- Fresh fruit to top (optional)
- Yogurt (optional)
- Add The Good Stuff™ Focus, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla into a medium sized jar and mix to combine.
- Slowly start to add the milk into the bowl, mixing regularly, until a paste begins to form.
- Add in the rest of the milk and mix until mixture is smooth. It may seem like there's a lot of liquid in there but trust us - the chia seeds will soak it up overnight!
- Add chia seeds and mix.
- Cover and refrigerate the mixture overnight (or at least 5 hours). Optional: Mix briefly once the mixture has been in the refrigerator for 45 minutes to help with consistency
- Remove from the refrigerator in the morning, top with yogurt and fresh fruit, and enjoy!
The Good Stuff™ Focus chia seed pudding will last 4-5 days in the refrigerator
