Blueberry Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding
By Christina Pasternak Serves 1
Chia seeds are great for hydrating our bodies, which is crucial for a healthy immune system. They are the richest plant source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which help the body emulsify and absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and E. Blueberries and chia seeds are loaded with antioxidants, which are crucial for fighting free radicals and preventing aging and disease. Chia seeds also contain the immune-boosting minerals iron and zinc.

- ¼ cup chia seeds
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- ½ cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 to 2 tablespoons raw honey (or 3-5 drops of liquid stevia, to taste)
- ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
You may also need:
In a high-speed blender, mix the almond milk, blueberries, cinnamon, raw honey (or stevia), and vanilla on high until smooth.
Pour the blueberry mixture over the chia seeds, stir thoroughly, let stand 15 minutes, stir again, then refrigerate until it resembles the texture of pudding (about 30 minutes).
Give it one last stir, then enjoy!

If you do swap stevia for honey, be sure to cut the amount. I would start with a mere tsp of stevia as it is vastly sweeter than the sweet honeybee nectar.
Christina Pasternak says:
I completely agree Jessica! 2 tablespoons of stevia would be WAY too much and would likely ruin the dessert! The ingredients should say 1-2 tablespoons of honey, or stevia to taste. If using liquid stevia, a few drops should do. Good eye, thank you!
