CHIA SEED PUDDING

I love this pudding for strengthening my bones to a calorie reduced option for breakfast or dessert.

1   Cup vanilla-flavored unsweetened almond milk

1    Cup plain non-fat 0% Greek Yogurt

1     Tablespoon pure maple syrup (preferably grade B)

1      Teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/4   Cup chia seeds

1/2   Teaspoon cinnamon

GARNISH WITH A SPRIG OF FRESH MINT

PREPARATION

In a medium bowl, whisk all of the above ingredients together until blended. Let stand  30 minutes, whisking every time you think about it. Pour into 6  ramekins, I actually measure 1/2 cup each. Cover each with wrap and chill.

To serve, seasonal fruit for topping (blueberries, peaches, figs and plums )  are just a few options.
Almonds or other nuts give good crunch.  Jeff likes 85 % Cacao sprinkled on top.

This is the exciting part, this yummy little dessert serves 6 people, 1/2 cup serving each.

This is why this dessert  is so healthy for you, just look at the numbers below. For someone like me with osteoporosis, this is surely SUPERFOOD.

SERVES 6 people, 1/2 cup serving each.
