Cinnamon-Spiced Chia Pudding (PRINT RECIPE)
(Makes 4 servings)
2 cups unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk
5-10 drops liquid stevia
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
6 tablespoons chia seeds
¼ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
¼ cup raw walnuts, chopped
This keeps well in the fridge for about 3-5 days. I like to make a batch at the beginning of the week and scoop out a snack when I’m craving something sweet!
**Adding berries will add more sugar to this meal and can increase your cravings for more sugar later in the day, so if you choose to add these, keep it to a small amount. Example: 2 strawberries, sliced or 6 blueberries.
Enjoy & let me know what you think,
