Thursday has arrived! That means it’s almost FRIDAY!!! The short weeks always seem to be the longest. Long weekend withdrawal.
Yesterday was a particularly random/funny “Top Searches” day for Sprint 2 the Table; therefore, I’m calling today…
Top Search Thursday!
- Mexican baby shower games (Mexican-themed food. Universal games.)
- Chocolate pudding with beans and avocado (Beans?! Ok, ok… I’d probably try it. These bean brownies are my fav.)
- How to make me mmm mmm mmm (Uhhhh… should I be concerned?)
- Why does my smoothy separate? (Smoothie. Try adding a sprinkle of guar gum.)
- Wines of Lebanon (Thank you, F+W Festival!)
- Remove bitter taste from tempeh (Boil it!)
- Apple pie oatmeal creation (That was pretty tasty.)
- Chipotle state location georgia (That is more Stacy‘s area of expertise.)
- Sweet on you dark chocolate sea salt cookies (If someone made me these cookies, I’d certainly be sweet on them!)
- Good morning peaches (Good Morning! Thanks for the lead-in to today’s post!)
Funny searches, good lead-ins for a dessert-like breakfast… it’s a good day!
Since peaches are the theme lately, I decided to try out a Peach Chia Pudding. I don’t even have the words to describe to you how delicious it was. Tip: martini glasses amplify deliciousness.
First I tried it cold. It was quite tasty. Then I remembered Leanne’s suggestion to heat the banana version. 25 microwave seconds later I thought I was eating peach cobbler.
Chia seeds form a gel-like substance when soaked in liquid (hence the pudding), which is why this is such a great overnight breakfast. In addition to making a fantastic pudding, they are a super food.
A few reasons Chi-chi-chi–chias rock:
- Highest natural source Omega-3 available
- Tons of fiber (7g per 2T)
- Loaded with antooxidents, vitamins, and minerals
- Provide lasting fullness/energy thanks to being slow-digesting
- Hydrating – they can absorb 12x their weight in water!
- May aid in muscle/tissue recovery
This pudding held me over until lunch (not an easy feat). I may eat this every day during peach season.
Peach Cobbler Chia Pudding
- 1 medium peach, sliced
- 1 T chia seeds
- 1 T cashew butter
- 1/4 C unsweetened vanilla coconut milk (I used So Delicious)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
In a small bowl, mash up peach slices until they are a chunky puree. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate over night (or at least 2-3 hours).
In the morning, uncover and stir. Optional: microwave ~25 secs (I strongly recommend trying it hot!).
Note: If you aren’t using a vanilla-flavored milk, you may want to add vanilla extract.
I wonder if people think search terms I use are funny?
What are some of the funniest terms you’ve used/seen?
Do you like chia seeds? How do you eat yours?
