Vitaminis Chia Pudding

Vitaminis Chia Pudding

Ch-ch-ch-chia!  Yep, those little seeds that used to grow hair on all sorts of terracotta characters are now a SUPERFOOD alongside flax, sesame, and hemp - all awesome sources of fiber and protein that are super easy to incorporate into littles snacks and meals.  So tiny that they easily blend or mix in often without much notice, we like to rotate all of these options through our kids smoothies, granola and baked goods as well as sprinkle on top of pasta, oatmeal and toast. 

But to truly embrace the texture of today’s star seed, we turn to chia pudding, a science experiment equally delicious as it is educational! Involving kids in all steps of the process can be a great learning opportunity - as they see the texture of the seeds change from their raw state to the gelatinous consistency of the final pudding, they’ll see that when approached in new ways, nutrition isn’t just neat, it’s yummy too!

Vitaminis Chia Pudding

Makes 1 Serving (easy to double in separate mason jars)

  • 1/4 cup Milk of choice (dairy or non)
  • 1 Vitaminis
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • Optional toppings: fresh Mango, coconut, drizzle of honey, nuts of choice

Combine milk and Vitaminis in a small mason jar, then stir in chia seeds and put lid on.  Refrigerate for 20 minutes, remove lid and stir again, cap and return to fridge for at least 3 hours, ideally overnight (can sit in fridge for up to 1 week after).  Top as desired and serve!

Note: Prefer another flavor profile for your chia pudding (we love chocolate!) - experiment with your favorite combinations, replacing the Vitaminis with another ¼ cup of milk - simply serve the Vitaminis on the side to still deliver ample nutrition.
