I love this pudding for strengthening my bones to a calorie reduced option for breakfast or dessert.
1 Cup vanilla-flavored unsweetened almond milk
1 Cup plain non-fat 0% Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon pure maple syrup (preferably grade B)
1 Teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 Cup chia seeds
1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
GARNISH WITH A SPRIG OF FRESH MINT
In a medium bowl, whisk all of the above ingredients together until blended. Let stand 30 minutes, whisking every time you think about it. Pour into 6 ramekins, I actually measure 1/2 cup each. Cover each with wrap and chill.
To serve, seasonal fruit for topping (blueberries, peaches, figs and plums ) are just a few options.
Almonds or other nuts give good crunch. Jeff likes 85 % Cacao sprinkled on top.
This is the exciting part, this yummy little dessert serves 6 people, 1/2 cup serving each.
This is why this dessert is so healthy for you, just look at the numbers below. For someone like me with osteoporosis, this is surely SUPERFOOD.
