Raw Chia Seed Pudding/Smoothie

BREAKFAST

Hi Loves!

Today on the blog I am sharing one of my favorite recipes to make when I need an energy boost or when I’m craving something sweet and satisfying. This Raw Chia Seed Pudding/Smoothie is perfect for people who are looking to add a little extra substance to smoothies.

How gorgeous is it?? Now the one necessity for making this smoothie is that you must be okay with the texture of tapioca pudding. I know some people can’t handle the texture, so I’m warning you now. For the rest of us, the pudding at the bottom of the smoothie is to die for. I absolutely love the coconut milk / chia combination because it becomes so sweet and flavorful and tastes like childhood again (who else ate those pudding snacks as a kid??). chiasmoothie2

This is also an extremely versatile snack. Either make the pudding the night before in a mason jar and add the smoothie on top before you run out the door, or sit down to a pudding / smoothie bowl and mix the two together. This is also a beautiful snack to make for family and friends if you have a nice, stemless glass like the one in the pictures. If you aren’t normally a smoothie drinker, this recipe will definitely change your perspective. Not only will the fruit energize you and fill you with anti-oxidizing vitamins and minerals, but the chia seeds will improve your skin and cellular function. It’s a win-win!
