Wicked simple recipe for Chia Pudding. 100% Plant-Based. 100% Delicious.
If you’ve been in search of the simplest breakfast of all time—a breakfast that is both healthy and delicious—look no further than my wicked simple chia pudding recipe!
All summer long, chia pudding has been my go-to recipe for breakfast for a handful of reasons.
First and foremost, it’s the simplest way to ensure I’ll have a healthy and nutritious breakfast that I enjoy each morning. You can make your chia pudding ahead of time (4 hours or more prior to when you want to eat it), and it lasts throughout the week. The texture might thicken each day, but I find that making a batch Sunday evening can last me through Friday morning.
Chia seeds boast super high fiber content and omega-3 fatty acids. They’re high in calcium, as well, and in antioxidants. Similar to flax seeds, chia’s health benefits increase when they’re ground up, so there’s a blended variation of the recipe below.
Chia pudding is nutritious and delicious! I make my chia pudding vanilla-heavy. It’s almost like dessert, to me. So I can’t help but feel happy as I chow down. Starting my days with chia pudding sets an energetic and positive tone for the rest of my day!
Lastly, chia pudding is super versatile! I’ll make a single batch Sunday evening, and I might still have a different breakfast each day. One morning I might mix in frozen berries and coconut chips; the next might include granola and cacao—each day can provide a new blast of flavor depending on what you want to mix in. I’ve included a list of ideas at the end of the recipe.
