Chia is an ancient seed packed with nutrients, including omega-3s, fiber, and protein. Plus, it has the unique ability to create a gel consistency, thus simply stirring it into vanilla-flavored soymilk, with a drizzle of maple syrup for a bit of a sweet touch, can create the most delicious, nutrition pudding! Top it with fresh berries for a dessert that’s healthy enough to enjoy for breakfast.

Yields 6 servings
- 3 cups vanilla-flavored soymilk
- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- ½ cup chia seeds
- ¼ teaspoon cardamom
- 3 cups fresh assorted berries, including sliced strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries
- Place soymilk in a medium glass bowl. Thoroughly mix in maple syrup, chia seeds and cardamom with a whisk.
- Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours, removing from refrigerator and vigorously stirring pudding with a whisk a few times during this period. The chia gels will swell and make a thick mixture; stirring occasionally will help make a smooth consistency and avoid settling of the seeds.
- To serve, divide pudding into 6 glass serving dishes (small mason jars or jelly jars are ideal), and top each with ½ cup berries.
