This is my go-to in the mornings, especially after I started Whole30. (I decided not to eat eggs during the 30 days to see how they were effecting me and now I can stop eating it!)
Full of Omega 3s, fiber and protein, it fills me up, tastes delicious, and makes me feel like I did something really good for myself!
2 cups water
3 tbsp hemp seeds
1 medjool date (take the pit out!)
6 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch sea salt (Don't skip this! It enhances the flavors!)
fresh fruit (banana, plums, blueberry, etc.) optional
nuts (walnuts, almonds, pecans, etc.) optional
nut butter (sunflower, almond, cashew, etc.) optional
coconut butter optional
unsweetened coconut optional
so many possibilities

Add 1 cup of water, hemp seeds, cashews and dates to a blender. Blend on high speed for 2-3 minutes, until a smooth milk is made. Add 1 more cup of water, chia seeds, cinnamon and sea salt, and pulse until combined, leaving chia seeds whole. Refrigerate overnight. Keeps well in fridge for 3-4 days. Top with your favorites!
TIP: Some people like their pudding a little thinner. In this case add 2 cups of water with chia seeds rather than 1 cup. Also, I love cinnamon, but you might want to start with 1/2 teaspoon.
My personal favorite combination is a banana, 1/4 cup frozen blueberries for texture, toasted pecans and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
