Maple Chia Pudding

Hello Friends! Just a quick post today… I posted this yummy chia pudding on my Instagram account and received a few requests for the recipe…so here you go!

I am a bit obsessed with chia pudding these days! I have a few different recipes on my site…but this simple version is my favorite.  

The recipe calls for just a few ingredients:  canned light coconut milk, white chia seeds, splash of pure maple syrup and vanilla extract.  I like the Trader Joe’s canned coconut milk as it is free of added gums, which are do not contain FODMAPs but can trigger symptoms in some folks.

Chia seeds are a low FODMAP fiber source yielding about 5 grams of fiber per tablespoon. They are also a source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats and magnesium. Enjoy!
