Yeah, it’s exactly what it sounds like: A Chia Pudding that tastes like Apple Pie. But for breakfast. Aaand healthy. Wait, what?! I know, I know. It’s kinda awesome. So, let’s cut to the chase and talk a bit about this Apple Pie Chia Pudding. Are you excited?? Cause I am !
But let’s discuss apple pie for a sec. Grandmas all over the world love making apple pies and that’s a fact, am I right? Cause that’s who introduced me to them. For some weird reason, I used to say no to apple pies as a kid in favor of all things chocolate. Totally understandable. But now it’s the opposite. I’m not a huge fan of chocolate(now, that’s weird), but would rather have any dessert with fruits in it. Hence, I love apple pies and I’m not ashamed to say it!
Tips and tricks for this Apple Pie Chia Pudding:
-I like to make my chia pudding the night before, because it allows it to get the right consistency. Just put the milk and chia seeds in a mason jar, give it a shake and place it in the fridge for 10 mins. Take it out, shake it really well again and leave it in the fridge until the next morning.
-I used coconut milk for my pudding, but it works really well with any type of milk, be it plant based or regular milk.
-If you don’t have maple syrup for caramelizing apples, white or brown sugar do the trick as well.
Apple Pie Chia Pudding
- 5 tbsp Chia Seeds
- 1 cup Coconut milk or other of your choice
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 apples cut into cubes
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- In a mason jar, place the milk, chia seeds, vanilla extract, maple syrup and cinnamon for the chia pudding. Shake it really well and place in the fridge for 10 minutes. Shake it again and leave in the fridge overnight or for at least 4-5 hrs.
- In a pan over medium heat, place the apples, cinnamon and maple syrup and caramelize them for about 7-8 minutes, until they turn golden brown and absorb some of the syrup and spice.
- Take the chia pudding out of the fridge, divide it in two glasses and place some of the apples on top.
