Breakfast is my FAVorite meal of the day --- I always make sure it's extra dense in nutrients and superfoods so that it kickstarts my day in the right direction! I am a huge egg & bacon fan along with breakfast smoothies, but on occasion, I like to spice things up a bit. I love anything from banana pancakes, collagen waffles, yogurt bowls, or even this recipe: breakfast pudding! It can be made so many different ways, so it's always a great option for guests so that you can accommodate everyone's different preferences. This recipe is inspired by one of my favorite nutritionists, Kelly Leveque, and her #Fabfour principles! I added a few more of my personal favorites to it too. I love this recipe because it's not only gluten-free, but also dairy-free and grain-free! So delicious!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Serving Size: 1 pudding bowl (or two small servings)
2 cups coconut or almond milk
3 tablespoons chia seeds
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
3 tablespoons hemp hearts
Sweetener option #1: 1 serving of vanilla collagen (my preference!)
Sweetener option #2: 2-3 stevia drops
Topping Options (depending on your personal preference of taste!):
unsweetened coconut flakes
frozen or fresh berries (blueberries, raspberries, cherries, etc)
chopped raw nuts (almonds, walnuts, cashews, etc)
peanut, cashew or almond butter
the options are endless!
In a medium pan (or small pot), on a medium heat, add the ghee (or coconut oil), coconut milk, chia seed and flax.
You're waiting for it to thicken -- so simply take a spatula and stir around until it is thick, like a pudding texture (takes a few minutes).
Mix in the sweetener of choice and continue to stir.
Pour into a bowl and add your desired toppings!
**Best if enjoyed warm**
