Grape Chia Seed Pudding

Do you find that when you indulge in a scrumptious treat it just sets you up for the kill and you end up eating far more of it than you should? Kiss those binges goodbye and say hello to this Grape Chia Pudding! One of the reasons that we love chia seeds (and other foods with soluble fiber, like veggies!) is that when these foods are soaked in liquid, they absorb the liquid they are in and act like a sponge—and they fill you up!

A fantastic thing about this scrumptious Grape Chia Seed Pudding is that chia seeds expand so much that while soaking (step 5 in the recipe below), the chia seeds form a gel-like texture. This delightful pudding-like texture takes longer to digest, fills you up, and helps to keep blood sugar stable, all which reduce cravings and binge eating. Have this sweet afternoon snack to give you long-lasting energy and keep you fuller, longer!

 

Ingredients (Serves 2):

1-cup whole seedless red grapes

1 tsp. honey

2 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk

2tbsp raw chia seeds

 

Directions:

  • Add grapes to food processor, (skin intact) blend until juice like consistency.
  • Add grape juice to small-medium sized bowl.
  • Add almond milk and honey and stir until evenly mixed.
  • Add chia seeds and stir.
  • Cover bowl and refrigerate for 5 hours (The longer you soak them, the more pudding-like, thicker consistency you’ll get—you can soak them for just 30 minutes if you’re in a crunch for time, or let them soak overnight, or all day!)
  • After optimal time for soaking, take the bowl out of the fridge, grab a spoon, and enjoy! (If you’re craving a crunch, try adding some oats or granola to make a chia pudding parfait!)
