Maple Cinnamon Chia Pudding Recipe
This maple cinnamon chia pudding recipe is sweet and delicious with hardly any guilt at all!
I know it’s a little cliché that everyone starts eating healthy foods again as soon as January rolls around. And yes, absolutely, we should be eating like that year-round. But I for one am happy to have a little motivation and reminder to get my butt back on track…and hopefully that same butt that is getting back on track will also firm up and decrease in size as a bonus.
And yes, you’ll be seeing more healthy recipes than cookies here – at least this month. But truthfully, that’s pretty indicative of both this site as well as the way we eat. Because, after all, we do eat the food I make. And the sweets usually get sent off to work with Ben so that I don’t eat all of them.
Enter chia pudding. Weird stuff, I know. Honestly, I almost didn’t blog this. But then my family members tried it and they actually really loved it. All three of them. Which pretty much never happens.
I love the flavors of this chia pudding recipe – sweetened with maple and flavored with warm spicy cinnamon, this is the perfect little treat for the time of winter that just drags on and on and on.
I made this with skim milk, but you could definitely do this with other types of milk – whole milk would make for a slightly more decadent treat.
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 1 and 1/2 cups skim milk
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
- Let sit for 10 minutes, stir again. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight before serving with additional cinnamon sprinkled on top if desired.
