Until recently, I had never tried chia pudding, but I had heard about it for quite some time. However, one day my mother ordered chia pudding for breakfast. The taste was just magnificent.  I crave them every morning. It’s just that First Watch is almost an hour away. So, I did some research about chia pudding and its variations. I also tried some but couldn’t really find something that provides the similar taste.

One day, a friend of mine told me the recipe which was somehow unique. Basically the granola part! I tried it and holy Jesus that was amazing. So, I’m today sharing the First Watch Chia Pudding Recipe, the authentic one with you guys! 

First Watch Chia Seed Pudding Recipe Ingredients and Instructions:

Our local shops have all the ingredients we need to make this recipe. Additionally, it provides enough calories to serve as a rich breakfast. Here are some quick notes about the ingredients.

Black Chia Seeds: Fiber, omega-3s, lots of protein, essential minerals, and antioxidants are all in chia seeds that is our main ingredient for this recipe.

Vanilla Extract: A vanilla extract is made by soaking vanilla beans in ethyl alcohol and water. However,for our chia pudding this is a vital ingredient. If you don’t have it, you can use maple syrup, honey or vanilla powder instead.

Coconut Milk: Coconut milk is a very tasty drink itself. With milk and unsweetened coconut you can make them at home easily. 

Agave Nectar: Agave nectar is basically a syrup that comes from the fluid in blue agave plants. 

How to Make Chia Bowl with Granola: 

Well, I had to research a lot for this recipe but you guys are very lucky. First Watch has now a beautiful cookbook with the AM Superfoods Bowl recipe in it. They sell the cookbook. However, to make it all you need to do is whisk the ingredients except chia seeds. Then add it and keep in the refrigerator for 2 hours. 

Also homemade granola takes this coconut milk chia pudding to a different level. Granola isn’t difficult to make at all! In a few days, you will have a batch of fresh granola to munch on.
