Apple Pie Chia Pudding

Chia pudding is one of my favorite breakfasts and can be a healthy dessert. I often make a batch of vanilla chia pudding and change it up during the week with different toppings…this has become of one of my favorites and I find myself sharing it a lot, so here it is.

Here are some other ideas for topping your chia puddings

Apple Pie Chia Pudding

Ingredients:

Simple Vanilla Chia:

  • 2 cups milk sub of choice or vanilla protein shake
  • 7 tbsp chia seeds
  • sweetener of choice (to taste)
  • Vanilla and/or sugar free vanilla syrup
  • 3/4 cup cottage cheese (this is optional, it’s my preference)

Fried “Apples” (Zucchini):

  •  1 medium zucchini – peeled, quartered, then sliced about 1/4″ thick.
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1.5 tbsp sweetener
  • 1/2 tsp apple pie spice
  • 3-4 drops of vanilla or apple extract (optional)

Steps:

Simple Vanilla Chia:

  1. Stir or shake well, chill and shake or stir every 20 minutes for the fist hour as it sets.
  2. This is easier than trying to mix it with the seeds clumped in the bottom.

Fried “Apples” (Zucchini):

  1. Melt butter in pan. Add diced zucchini.
  2. Add in sweetener, cinnamon and lemon juice saute for 3-5 minutes, or until it reaches your desired tenderness.
  3. Once the zucchini is tender to your liking, add in the apple pie spice and vanilla, stir well. This will thicken up the liquid quite a bit.
  4. Serve warm over the chia pudding or store for later by cooling and storing in an airtight container in the fridge.
  5. Reheat with a little extra butter for extra sauce.

Notes:

  • Top with granola for a little extra yum!
