Green Chia Pudding
A different way to get your greens in for breakfast. We made a green milk base by blending coconut milk with spinach and using that to make chia pudding. The spinach flavor is masked by the rich coconut milk, and the green color looks so vibrant. Prep it the night before and top with almonds, coconut, and berries for an easy breakfast.
2 dates, pitted (optional)
2 large handfuls spinach
4 cups coconut or almond milk (a combination of the two is also good)
1 cup chia seeds
1. If using dates, soften them before blending. Place them in a small bowl, cover with hot water, and let sit for a few minutes. Remove from the water and add them to a powerful blender.
2. Add the spinach and nondairy milk and blitz until the spinach is completely blended and there are no more leafy bits. In a large bowl, add the spinach mixture, the chia seeds, and a pinch of salt; mix to combine. Let set in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. Once thickened to your liking, top with blueberries, sliced almonds, and toasted coconut.
