Luscious Vanilla Chia Pudding with Berry Compote

There's so many recipes out there for Chia Pudding, but I think mine is the best.  Why? Because it's easy, rich and creamy, and tastes like you're eating dessert.  The chia seed is nutrient-dense, so it's a perfect breakfast food.  Gluten-free, dairy-free, chock-full of vitamins, minerals, fiber, omega-3s, protein, calcium and iron....you know you're starting your day off right!

Course Breakfast
Servings 2

Ingredients

  • 2 C nut milk I use 1 can organic coconut milk and the rest is almond milk
  • 2 T pure maple syrup
  • 2 T vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 C chia seeds
  • 2 C organic frozen blueberries
  • 1 C fresh strawberries

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, mix up first four ingredients very well.  Add in chia seeds and whisk well.  Cover and refrigerate.  Should be set in a few hours, or better yet, overnight.

    For fruit compote:  Simmer frozen blueberries on stove until bubbly.  You can add a bit of maple syrup if you like but the chia pudding is so rich and sweet enough, you really don't need to.

    Layer chia pudding with blueberry compote and fresh strawberries, alternating until you fill the cup.
