How Exciting!

Today, I’d like to introduce to you, a friend of mine, Amanda Whitworth of The Savoury Soul. Amanda is our very first guest on alisonsmith.com, and I’m so ecstatic to share her recipe for Sugar-Free Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding! Amanda recently completed my Sweet Liberation Program: a 1:1 coaching program that teaches women how to quit sugar in 30-days. You can read about Amanda’s sugar-free experience that resulted in clear, acne-free skin, and a leaner body, here.

Amanda’s recipe for Sugar-Free Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding is absolutely gorgeous. And, it’s a great example of how you can still indulge in sweet desserts without eating sugar. So, let’s get to it. Take it away, Amanda!

This recipe is perfect for any Level 1-3 sugar-free lifestyle (Psst…did you know that there are 4-Levels to living sugar-free?)

Sugar-Free Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds have become quite the buzzword within the last few years. I remember a time when the only chia product I ever heard of was the infamous infomercial on TV for Chia Pets. You know the jingle, “Cha Cha Cha Chia!”

Although I never experienced owning a Chia Pet, I certainly have added Chia into my daily life.

Chia seeds are a Superfood that come with a long list of health benefits but I hold them in high regard because of their fiber and omega-3 fatty acid benefits. I personally hold these tiny seeds responsible for the rapid rate at which my hair and nails grow. (The validity behind this is still to be determined but I like to give credit where I think credit is due.)

You can add Chia Seeds to just about anything; but, my favorite way to eat them is in pudding, and I’m slowly experimenting with all of the different pudding flavors accessible to this one little guiltless pleasure.

Today I’m sharing one of my standard go-to’s: vanilla chia seed pudding. Some say vanilla is boring; I say if it isn’t broke, why fix it? You certainly can’t go wrong with vanilla, and you can doctor-it-up with some berries, nuts and seeds. Then, just like that, you have yourself a delicious, nutritionally dense parfait.

I eat this sugar-free, gluten-free, and plant-based pudding for breakfast or as a treat when I’m craving something sweet but want to avoid any added sugar.

Enjoy!

    Looks delicious!
    I’ve been seeing a lot on the benefits of certain healthy fats recently for energy, cognitive function and even weight-loss (eg. bulletproof coffee). Does full-fat coconut milk fall into some or all of these benefit categories? (or more? 🙂

    Thanks for another great and quick recipe

      Yes, there’s so much buzz about high-fat or ketogenic diets. It’s true, fat doesn’t make you fat. Funny that you mention Bulletproof Coffee; so many people are just loving that product. Since healthy, plant-based fats are so important for brain health and energy, I do recommend sticking with the full-fat coconut milk. And…it tastes delicious! I like the organic Thai Kitchen coconut milk the most.
