Lemon Chia Seed Pudding that’s both refreshing and nutritious.

Ingredients:

For the Lemon Chia Seed Pudding:

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)

For the Lemon Yogurt Topping:

  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (full-fat or low-fat)
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

For Garnish:

  • Sliced strawberries or blueberries
  • Fresh mint leaves (optional)

Instructions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the chia seeds, almond milk, lemon zest, fresh lemon juice, and honey or maple syrup. Stir well to combine. Make sure there are no clumps of chia seeds.
  2. Let the mixture sit for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. This allows the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and thicken the pudding. If you prefer a thicker pudding, you can refrigerate it for a few hours or overnight.
  3. In a separate bowl, prepare the Lemon Yogurt Topping by mixing Greek yogurt, honey or maple syrup, lemon zest, and fresh lemon juice. Taste and adjust the sweetness as desired.
  4. Once the chia seed pudding has thickened to your liking, assemble the dessert. Start by spooning a portion of the Lemon Chia Seed Pudding into a serving glass or bowl.
  5. Add a dollop of the Lemon Yogurt Topping on top of the chia seed pudding.
  6. Garnish your healthy lemon dessert with sliced strawberries, blueberries, or your favorite fresh berries. You can also add a sprig of fresh mint for extra color and flavor if you like.
  7. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to enjoy.

This Lemon Chia Seed Pudding is not only healthy but also a delightful and tangy dessert option. It’s rich in fiber, omega-3 fatty acids from the chia seeds, and provides a burst of lemony freshness. Plus, the Greek yogurt topping adds a creamy texture and extra protein to keep you feeling satisfied.
