Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seed pudding is one of the easiest make-ahead breakfasts you can prep. 

Blend everything in a blender, divide it into jars, and place it in the fridge. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

Great for grab-and-go.

Chia seed pudding is cooling and creamy– just what you crave on a warm morning. Store each serving in jars or small containers and it’s super convenient to grab and go– on your way to a morning workout, when you’re running late to work or as a healthy snack giving you more energy for the afternoon. 

Chia Seeds are nutrient rich. 

A main benefit of eating chia seeds is that they’re loaded with omega 3s. They also have a fair amount of calcium, iron, and magnesium. They’re great for your skin, as they’re high in antioxidants. (think, less wrinkles– antioxidants help slow the aging process) Plus, chias are great for your digestion– they  have about 10 grams of fiber per ounce (25-35 grams is the daily recommendation). 

This Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding is sweet and delicious. It’s loaded with antioxidants and healthy fats to keep you satiated. The recipe calls for blueberries, but raspberries or a berry blend work, too.

 A note about chia seed pudding: chia seed pudding has an interesting texture. If you make these and don’t love the texture (I’m positive you’ll love the taste!), just eat it layered with something crunchy, like nuts. You could also alternate layers of plain yogurt and chia pudding. I find using full fat coconut milk helps thicken the pudding and I like the texture much better. 

Make eating healthy a little easier. 

Take 5 minutes this weekend and prep some chia seed pudding for the week ahead. Eating healthy is easy when you’re prepared. And, prepping ahead is easier when the recipe is simple and doesn’t take much time.
