Chia pudding is a type of pudding made with chia seeds and milk. Chia seeds are a type of seed that comes from the Salvia hispanica plant, which is native to Mexico and Central America. Chia seeds are rich in nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and fiber.
The history of chia pudding recipes is unknown. However, chia seeds have been used in Mexican and Central American cuisine for centuries. Chia seeds were a staple food of the Aztec and Mayan cultures. In the Aztec language, chia means “strength.”
Chia pudding recipes likely originated in Mexico or Central America. However, the pudding has become popular in recent years due to its health benefits. Chia pudding is a healthy alternative to other pudding recipes that use ingredients like sugar, eggs, and flour.
Chia pudding is a delicious and nutritious snack or breakfast option. To make the perfect chia pudding, start by adding two tablespoons of chia seeds to one cup of your favorite milk or non-dairy milk. Let the mixture sit for at least an hour or overnight in the refrigerator to give the chia seeds time to absorb the liquid and swell. Then add desired mix-ins such as fresh fruit, nut butter, cocoa powder, or spices to give it an extra boost of flavor. Top it off with granola or coconut flakes for a crunchy texture. Enjoy!
