I'm always looking for different things to have for breakfast so I decided to make a Blueberry Chia Pudding. Chia Seeds are very good for you, particularly for your digestion and they are loaded with nutrients with very few calories. I used Almond Milk to keep it Lactose Free and I cooked frozen blueberries with a little Sugar to make a sauce to stir in. It was so good that I am sharing it with you! You could easily make this a dessert instead of a breakfast dish.
Blueberry Chia Pudding
1 cup Almond Milk
1/3 cup Chia Seeds
3/4 cup Blueberries
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Tablespoon Hot Water
In a mixing bowl, mix together the Almond Milk and Chia Seeds. Put aside.
Put Sugar and Hot Water in the bottom of a small pot and stir to dissolve slightly. Add the Blueberries and turn the heat to medium. Cook until some of the Blueberries start to burst and make a sauce - you can push down on some of the Blueberries with you spatula to help this process along. Cook for about 3 minutes. Add to the Chia mixture and stir in thoroughly. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes up to overnight.
Five Element Analysis
Blueberries are a Water Fruit and Chia Seeds belong to the Water Element as well. So this is a great dish to support your Kidneys. Almond Milk is a Metal Beverage with some of the Earth Element from the Almonds as well and the Sugar adds just a bit more Earth. The Fire Element is missing, which can easily be added with Coffee or Tea and the Wood Element also needs representation so I served my pudding with Chicken Breakfast Sausages to make a balanced breakfast!
