Chia seeds are known to be among the most nutritious foods on the planet. Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, protein and fiber, to name just a few. Chia seeds are also naturally gluten-free. In this scrumptious lemon cream chia pudding, I have added avocado and fresh lemon juice giving it a creamier texture and a bit of zest. The only question is, would you eat it for breakfast, snack or dessert? For breakfast, I would add fresh fruit, for a snack some seeds and nuts and dessert some tasty coconut cream. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups unsweetened coconut milk or milk of your choice
  • 1 medium size ripe avocado
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup or liquid honey
  • 1 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. Fine sea salt
  • ½ cup GF white chia seeds
  • Topping choices; Lemon zest, berries, banana, seeds and nuts, coconut whipped cream
  • Instructions

  • Add milk, peeled and pitted avocado, lemon juice, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and salt to a high-speed blender, and blend until smooth
  • Pour mixture into a medium-size bowl and whisk in chia seeds. Cover and chill for one hour
  • After an hour stir the pudding, to redistribute the chia seeds evenly. Cover and refrigerate overnight
  • Serve with desired toppings
  • NOTE: if the pudding seems too thick add more milk one tablespoon at a time until desired texture is reached
