Chia Seed Pudding is an easy and healthy breakfast or snack option! I especially love it in the warmer months since it is light. I enjoy mine topped with fresh fruit and melted peanut butter for extra protein kick – but you can customize this to your liking with whatever you have around the house!
- 1 Cup Almond Milk (can also sub for regular milk or your favorite dairy alternative)
- 3 Tbsp Chia Seeds
- 1 Tsp Vanilla
- Optional Toppings: Fruit, Shredded Coconut, Melted Peanut Butter, Cinnamon (get creative!)
- Serves: 1
- Prep Time: 5 Minutes
- Total Time: 8 Hours (to set)
Step 1: Add the milk and vanilla to a re-sealable container. Mix Together.
Step 2: Add the chia seeds in and mix well.
Step 3: Seal and placed in the fridge for at least 6-8 hours – overnight works best though to make sure all the milk has been absorbed for a thicker pudding. *the key here is trying to stir the chia seeds a few times during the first few hours while they begin to set – if not clumps can form and you will be left with hard chia seeds. I like to give mine a few shakes every 30 minutes for the first 2 hours and they tend to not clump!
Step 4: When you are ready to eat, top with your favorite fruits, peanut butter, and any other toppings you want!
