Lunch on Friday was a typical end of the week meal comprised of slightly random odds and ends (a clean out the fridge scenario). I had made some teriyaki chicken and veggies for dinner, with coconut rice and black beans; this got packed as is into the lunch box, because I was too lazy to make something new. Earlier that morning, I had the wherewithal to mix up a small batch of blueberry chia pudding. Isn’t that pudding a great purple color?

Blueberry Chia Pudding
  • 1 cup milk of your choice
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 3–4 dates
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons chia seeds

Combine all ingredients except chia seeds in a blender until smooth. Stir in the chia seeds and let the mixture sit in the fridge for several hours, preferably overnight. This pudding was a big hit with the kiddos.
