Raw Chia Seed Pudding

Image

Found this recipe on Pinterest and it’s from a cute mom blog called Raising Hardy Boys  Keeping them Fit and Fed. It’s super simple and pretty tasty.

Here is what you’ll need:

6T chia seeds

6Tsweetener of choice ( I used a coconut sugar/stevia mix)

1.5 c liquid of choice (I used 1 cup fresh coconut water from a young coconut and half a cup of unsweetened almond milk)

3T cocoa powder

1.5t vanilla

Image

All you have to do is whisk it all together and let it sit. I popped mine in the fridge and came back to it later but you really just need to wait about 15 minutes for the chia seeds to get all crazy thick.

I meant to top it with some berries but forgot and ate all the berries for breakfast so I used so of my leftover buckwheat groats and holy cow! It was great!ImageImage

Banana Oatmeal and Watermelon Smoothie

I am a fan of oatmeal and like to make big pots and portion it into jars to eat throughout the week, but as of late I find that I have been making too much and not finishing it. I found this single serving of baked oatmeal on angie and james do stuff  who adapted the recipe from chocolate-covered katie. It was sooo good and I can eat all day everyday but this filled me up really fast (with the smoothie too).

So here is my go at the oatmeal along with a refreshing watermelon smoothie (and I HATE watermelon but this was delicious!)

ImageHere is what ya need:

Preheat oven to 220°

1 small banana, mashed
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1/8 t ground nutmeg
1/8 t of salt
1/4 t vanilla
Just under a Tablespon on vegan sugar 1 t chia seeds 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats 1/4 cup milk of choice. I use vanilla almond milk

Mash your banana until it’s not lumpy

add all ingredients except oats and milk.

mix together with a fork

add oats and milk and mix again

pour into ramekin (I’ve been looking to use that thing!)

bake for 20 minutes and CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP

Now you have some time to clean up and when you have a few minutes of bake time remaining you can make your smoothie!

ImageWhat ya need:

No measuring here, dudes, smoothies don’t play by the rules.
Raspberries
Strawberries
Watermelon (more of this than the berries)
Banana
Almond Milk (or whatever you prefer)
OJ
Vanilla,
Chia Seeds
Ice

Directions: BLEND! I like to blend everything then add the crushed ice and give it another quick blend so the ice doesn’t get too small and melt.
