I hope the (long) weekend treated you well. Three day weekends are always the best .. and I love when Monday is actually a second Sunday

I also hope that you were able to put all of your tasks and to-dos on simmer to enjoy the sunny days. At our house we started summer with night walks in the lazy river .. neighborhood BBQs .. and road trips with the puppies to explore some new (to us) state parks

Of course there were also thoughts of cooking. For the past few weeks .. there's been quite a collection of Spring 2017 cookbooks that's been scattered across our coffee table. Each more inspiring than the next. Are you a cookbook collector? Have you noticed some that have come out these past few months?

They're pretty incredible

Today .. a few fun links from around the web

Everyday Chia Pudding with Roasted Berries - This simple everyday chia pudding can be dressed up with whatever you like. I love it with roasted fruit, toasted coconut, or toasted hazelnuts

If you're anything like me .. you're always on the lookout for quick and healthy breakfast ideas .. and this is such a good one.

Chia pudding with roasted fruit has been in high rotation around our house the past couple of weeks. It's summery and bright .. and if you're able to get on board with chia seeds in general .. it's a really great way to start the day.

Chia can be a funny ingredient to experiment with .. and quite honestly .. I haven't always been a fan. That said .. when I have found my groove with them .. they're great. High in fiber and omega-3 .. they're an ancient energy seed used by the Aztecs, Mayans, and Incas

I've been making a version of this bowl before morning yoga .. or as a snack on the days I'm able to make it to my Crossfit class. It really keeps me going and feeling strong

It goes something like this .. soak the chia sees in you favorite nut (or coconut) milk. Top with roasted berries and a variety of other ideas. A bit of bee pollen adds a boost and also some pretty

A few notes about the recipe

If you like a thicker bowl .. add more chia seeds .. if you like a thinner consistency go for less. Also, I used a coconut milk here .. but any favorite nut milk will do. I sweetened mine with coconut nectar (love) .. but use a bit of whatever natural sweetener you keep on hand

Turned off by the texture? Try giving your pudding a few pulses in the blender .. I bet it will really help

Enjoy!

xoxo

Author:
Serves: 4 Servings
Ingredients
  • Chia Pudding
  • ⅓ cup chia seeds
  • 1¾ cup unsweetened coconut milk (one 13.5 oz can, or nut milk of choice)
  • 3 Tbsp coconut nectar (or honey, or maple syrup for a vegan version of this recipe)
  • ¼ tsp ground cardamom
  • pinch of fine grain sea salt

  • Roasted Fruit
  • 1 cup berries (I used blueberries)
  • 2 tsp natural sugar (such as Sugar in the Raw of Turbinado)

  • Topping Ideas
  • Toasted coconut flakes, something with a bit of crunch - walnuts, sunflower seeds, granola, etc. A bit of bee pollen if you use it (and aren't allergic).
Instructions
  1. Chia Pudding
  2. In a bowl, add the chia seeds, coconut milk, sweetener, cardamom, and sea salt; mix until combined
  3. Refrigerate for at least an hour, or until the chia seeds have completely bloomed and softened. (You can also do this step the night before, but I like the flavor a bit better when the chia hasn't sat for that long)

  4. Roasted Fruit
  5. Preheat oven to 425 deg F
  6. Place the berries in a baking dish, sprinkle the natural sugar on top, and mix
  7. Roast for 14-16 minutes, staring them a few times to ensure they cook evenly
  8. They're done when the berries are releasing their juices but are still holding their shape. (Depending on the ripeness of the berries, they may take a little more or less time to reach this point, so you'll want keep an eye on them

  9. Serve
  10. Serve the pudding topped with the roasted berries, warm or chilled, along with (optional) garnishes

I love your roasted berries. That would be something new to try. I wonder if it would also work with other fruits.
