OMG I’m on a chia-seed pudding bender & I can’t stop. Thank goodness it’s super good for you or I’d be in trouble.

I think I’ve had it EVERY DAY this week so far. For breakfast. For lunch. For dessert.

Yah, I know. I’m obsessed.

Here’s the deal: it’s easy, it’s filling, it’s delicious, and just so happens to be one of the healthiest foods ever.

Chia seed pudding recipe

SOME BAD-ASS BENEFITS:

+ Chia seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, minerals & protein.

+ Chia seeds contain 11 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein per ounce (ahem ladies: this is the remedy if you’re ever having trouble in the bathroom lol)

+ Helps to maintain stable blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol, and healthy weight.

+ Helps curb your appetite. These tiny little super seeds absorbs up to 10x their weight in water & turns into a soft gel-like pudding. So it makes you fuller, longer… and I neeeeed that. #AlwaysHungry

+ It’s refreshing and gets rid of any sugary, candy, ice cream craving. <— It really does. Oddly satisfying.

So. If you’re looking for directions, it’s easy (prep time 1 min)

Here’s what you’ll need (serving size 3):

1.5 cups Coconut Milk or Almond Milk (I like to mix a bit of both)

1 tbs Vanilla Extract

1/3 cup Chia Seeds

Here’s what you do:

  1. Combine your milk and vanilla extract into a jar
  2. Add chia seeds
  3. Stir. Stir like mad. A few times! This is key with chia seeds.
  4. Cover the jar and set in refrigerator for at least 4 hours (or over night).
  5. Add toppings and enjoy!

Ta-DA! That’s all folks.

For other variations:

Here, I added blueberries (which sometimes I sub for blackberries), bananas, strawberries, and granola.

Simply add it to your pudding and enjoy!

For this next variation, I made a raspberry jam: mash up some raspberries with a fork- But I’m pretty much game for anything: blueberries, blackberries, bananas, etc.

Add some greek yogurt, top it off with strawberries, granola, blueberries, and you’ve got breakfast on.the.go.

PS: I like to take this with me when I’m running super late, it’s easy & super filling!
