Ingredients

For the chia pudding

  • 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

For the acai smoothie

  • 1 unsweetened frozen acai packet (I buy the Sambazon brand from Whole Foods)
  • 1 banana, previously sliced and frozen
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

For the toppings

  • blueberries
  • sliced banana
  • pepitas
  • black sesame seeds
  • honey

Instructions

  1. To make the chia pudding, combine almond milk, chia seeds, honey, and vanilla in a bowl and whisk to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours but preferably overnight. I usually stir mine once or twice to break up any chunks before I go to bed.

  2. Once chia pudding is ready, make the acai smoothie. In a high powdered blender, combine the acai packet, frozen banana, strawberries, raspberries, and almond milk. Blend until completely smooth. It will be thick, so you might have to stir things around in your blender a couple times to get things going. The goal is to not add a lot of almond milk so it's super thick like ice cream!

  3. Pour chia pudding into half of a bowl, and the acai purée to the other half. Garnish with toppings and a drizzle of honey!

Recipe Notes

*Allow at least 4 hours or overnight for chia pudding to set up!
