Will Run For Flax Chia Vanilla Pudding

a great excuse to eat maple syrup

Summer vacation is O-V-E-R!  That means no more lemon poppyseed pancakes, waffles, or delicious baked goods for breakfast.  Who has time for that when they're scrambling to lesson plan ( I would never do this.  No.  Not me), walk the dogs, pack a lunch and eat breakfast?  It does mean breakfasts that can be prepared while multi-tasking, travel well and can be eaten well after they have been prepared.

Flax Chia Vanilla Pudding
(serves 2)


1 C soy milk (or milk of your choice)
2 Tbsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp ground flax
1 Tbsp vanilla paste
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups mixed fruit (e.g. strawberries, bananas, mango, pineapple)
1 tsp maple syrup 

Warm milk over medium heat milk until hot and steamy. 
 Add chia seeds, ground flax, vanilla, and cinnamon.  Allow to simmer for approximately one minute. 

  Poor into a wide shallow bowl.  Allow to cool (at this point I usually put the whole bowl in the freezer because I'm impatient). 

 Once mixture is cool whisk until desired volume is reached.

Top with mixed fruit and maple syrup.

breakfast in no time

If all of the above seems like a little much and you remember to plan ahead simply place all of the ingredients in a bowl (with the exception of the fruit and maple syrup) and allow to soak overnight.  Whisk (or not if you don't mind a gelatinous chunk).  Top with fruit and maple syrup.
