Basic Chia Seed Pudding

This is how I start out every chia seed pudding. Time is of the essence. Preferably the chia seeds should soak overnight.

  • 2 dl of any nut milk, oat milk or rice milk
  • 3-4 tbsp chia seeds
3 tbsp chia seeds.
About 2 dl milk added.
Stirred together, and then let sit for an hour.
Mixed some more.
A bit more milk added to allow all chia seeds to soak and get jelly like.
All chia seeds have soaked. If you want your chia seed pudding to be thicker you don’t need to add as much milk as I do the second time.
Then it can be topped with any sweetener you like, fruits and berries. 🙂

House Renovation #2

In April we discovered we had mold in the house all across the ceiling facing north. From our previous learnings of the first floor we had to redo the outer walls because they did not have the proper insulation. Moreover, the ventilation system was wrongly installed. This meant we would need to peel off pretty much the entire inside of the top floor and redo major parts of the rest of the house. We decided together with our architect to install new and bigger windows and doors all around the house. At this point we also redid the electricity, installed spot lights in the kitchen and hallway ceilings, took down the previous fireplace and finally got the steal beam for the kitchen ceiling delivered.

Bottom right window is the kitchen, top right window is future bedroom, top left window is future en-suit bathroom.

Chia Seed Smoothie

Ingredients

  • 2 dl oat milk
  • 2 frozen bananas, in pieces
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds, soaked overnight
  • 2 tsp agave
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • a dash of ground turmeric

Soak the chia seeds overnight in the milk you are going to use. Then, the following day, blend all ingredients together in to a wonderful smoothie. 🙂

Topped with maple syrup. 🙂

Some days I like to make my smoothies thicker and sweeter than I normally would. Certain days demand an ice cream like smoothie, maybe also topped with homemade crunchy granola (upcoming recipe), on the sofa watching Bored to Death for the fourth time. 😉 I promise, it is that good.
