Creamy Chia Seed Tapioca Pudding (Gluten Free/Vegan)
When I was a kid my grandma used to make me tapioca pudding. It was one of my absolute favorite things...so creamy, sweet, light and delicious :). Actually, I wouldn't have really modified her recipe that much since tapioca itself is gluten free. Maybe I would have used almond milk instead of cows milk and honey instead of white sugar, but really, I came upon this chia recipe by accident this afternoon while I was having lunch. I always mix chia seeds with plain yogurt and after it sits in the fridge over night, the consistency is just like tapioca. But I decided to try a vegan version tonight and see how it turned out. Alternatively, just throw a spoon full of chia seeds into whatever kind of yogurt you like, leave it over night in the fridge and in the morning you have a delicious, healthy and energizing snack!
2 cups almond milk
3/4 of a cup chia seeds
2 tbsp honey (or any other sweetener of your choosing)
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients together and leave in fridge for as long as you can stand it without eating! Enjoy :)
