Breakfast, Recipe

Hey everyone! I’m obsessed with chia pudding – it’s been my go-to breakfast for years (you can even see my chia pudding journey on [YouTube]!). It’s not just delicious and creamy, but it’s also incredibly easy to make and endlessly customizable. Plus, it keeps me feeling satisfied all morning.

The best part? You only need two main ingredients to whip up a batch of chia pudding! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Chia seeds: Black or white, both work and have similar benefits.
  • Milk: Go wild! Dairy or dairy-free, whatever you prefer. I love using homemade cashew milk, almond milk, or oat milk.
  • Sweetener (optional): A touch of maple syrup or honey and some vanilla extract add a hint of sweetness to the base.

Now, onto the fun part – making it!

  1. Stir it up: In a bowl or individual jars, whisk together chia seeds, milk, maple syrup (if using), and vanilla extract. Let it sit for 10 minutes, then give it another stir to break up any clumps.
  2. Chill and thicken: Cover the bowl or jars and refrigerate for at least a few hours, or ideally overnight.
  3. Top it off! When you’re ready to dig in, unleash your creativity! Pile on your favorite fruits, nuts, or even layer a fruit puree on the bottom for a burst of flavor.

Here are some extra tips to keep in mind:

  • Portion control is key. It’s easy to get carried away and make a giant chia pudding masterpiece, but remember, bigger isn’t always better. Aim for a 1/2 cup milk to 2 tablespoons chia seed ratio.
  • Customize it to your taste! Like it thicker? Add less milk. Prefer it a little looser? Add a splash more.
  • Get creative with toppings! Spices like cinnamon or cardamom, a sprinkle of cocoa powder for chocolate chia pudding, fresh or frozen fruit, nut butters – the possibilities are endless!

Chia pudding is also perfect for meal prepping. I love making a big batch on Sundays in individual jars, topping them with frozen berries, and then freezing them for the week. They’ll last for ages, and you’ll always have a healthy breakfast ready to go in the fridge overnight.

And the best part? Chia pudding is a blank canvas for flavor exploration. It all started with the basic recipe, but trust me, this isn’t your average breakfast. It’s a chance to get creative and whip up something delicious and healthy that fuels your day. Stay tuned for some fun chia pudding variations coming your way!
