Looking for a quick and easy breakfast, or snack that you can prepare in advance? And is a great source of protein, omega 3s, vitamins and minerals? The chia pudding is a mighty little meal that provides all of these. The fantastic thing about these little ‘puddings’ is that you can play around with flavours – vanilla, strawberries, banana, even chocolate (using raw cacao powder), coconut, mango, blueberry – the options are endless.

As a base recipe, you can use the following:

  • 1/3 cup chia seeds.
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice).
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or vanilla bean.
  • Honey (or sweetener of your choice).

In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and stir well Stir at 5 minute intervals for 20 minutes – then add toppings of your choice and enjoy OR Refrigerate overnight if desired Stir it in the morning and add toppings of your choice.

Topping suggestions: Goji berries, cacao nibs, banana, strawberries, coconut flakes, chopped dates, cinnamon, passionfruit pulp, raspberries, blueberries. I like to prepare mine in a jar with a lid. I leave enough room to add some berries or coconut on top, and then I can take it with me on the road and eat is straight from the jar. Delicious and convenient!
