After-School Snack Recipe: Acai Chia Seed Pudding Smoothie

Caiden is going to school in a couple of days. Eek. It's been a really fun Summer but I'm ready for school to start. We're almost done with our shopping and this weekend I'll be planning/prepping lunches for my picky eater...including after-school healthy snacks .

Last week I shared a Pita Pizza recipe and this week I'm excited to share a superfood smoothie recipe! Acai and Chia Seeds are two superfoods filled with health benefits to help refuel your kids after a long day of school. Acai is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals while chia seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, iron, calcium, and antioxidants as well. Put these two together (along with other ingredients from Milk and Eggs) and you've got an Acai Chia Seed Pudding Smoothie. 

Chia Seed Pudding:
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 cup coconut milk 
Sweetener to taste (I like to use honey)

In a bowl, gently stir ingredients together. Cover and leave overnight in refrigerator to set. This is my go-to ratio for chia seed pudding, fyi. Using this ratio gives it the perfect consistency. Once set, stir to remove the clumps and set aside. 

Acai Smoothie:
1 frozen Acai puree packet
1 frozen banana 
1 cup coconut milk 

Blend until smooth. 

Pour a little smoothie into a glass, then alternate with chia seed pudding in the middle, and finish it with more smoothie. Don't forget to top it with fresh fruits and/or granola. For this recipe I used a toasted coconut granola! Enjoy!
