I really like this time of year. For me, savoring the last lovely moments of summer while looking forwards to the coziness of fall is one of the best parts of the year. But the one thing I don’t love is the food. Its an awkward phase- we’re moving on from hot dogs and watermelon, but aren’t quite ready for all pumpkin everything. So what’s a food-loving gal to do? Make Mint Chia Pudding, of course.
This Mint Chia Pudding is the perfect transition food. The mint flavor is fresh and summery, which reminds me of sitting on the beach eating a cone of mint chocolate chip. (Or my mint chip “ice cream”)
At the same time, its super convenient and meal prep friendly. Make a few batches at the beginning of the week, portion the chia pudding into jars in the fridge, and you’ll have grab & go snacks all taken care of!
Plus, thanks to the magical power of chia seeds, this pudding will be able to power you through anything from outdoor summer adventures to the first day of school!
If you make the recipe, be sure to share with me on Instagram! And let me know (in the comments or on IG): what are you most excited for about fall?
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- ¾ c. cashew milk
- Small handful spinach
- ¼ tsp mint extract
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- Add all ingredients to blender.
- Pulse until smooth.
- Allow to rest for at least 2 hours in fridge.
- Go crazy with toppings!!
As you can see, I went a little wild with toppings (which I totally recommend doing!) I used plain greek yogurt, chocolate peanut butter, and granola. It was delicious, and I’d love to hear your topping suggestions too.
