Zero Cholesterol Recipe of Vanilla Chia Pudding
CHIA means STRENGTH!
“Chia” = Strength (as defined in the Mayan language)
Chia seeds create very cute pets, but they also are a nutritious edible seed from a desert plant called Salvia Hispanica. Omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants are only a few of the nutrients in chia seeds that will help boost the quality of your diet and prevent chronic disease.
Below are a few ways you can add chia seeds to your diet.
- Sprinkle on your yogurt/oatmeal/cereal/salads
- Mix into a homemade dressing
- Blend into smoothies
- Add to baked goods and granola/nut/fruit bars
- Stir with a liquid (water, almond milk, soy milk) to create a pudding/gel like consistency, as featured in this week’s recipe, Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding.
Zero cholesterol recipe of Vanilla Chia Pudding:
Mix up your morning yogurt with a satisfying lactose-free option.
Yield: 2 Serving (1/2 cup per serving)

- 1 Tablespoon of 100% pure maple syrup (or honey)
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 3 Tablespoons of chia seeds

In a small bowl or tupperware container, mix all the ingredients together. Cover the chia seed mixture with saran warp or a tupperware lid. Let the chia seed mixture sit overnight.
