Chia Pudding 4 Ways

breakfast Feb 09, 2018
You all know by know chia pudding is one of my go to breakfasts and/or snacks. Why? It takes no time to put it together, it's hella good for you and you can mix it up so that you even if you make a big batch you don't have to eat the same ALL week long.
 
I'm all about keeping things fresh and exciting - nothing boring over here. And that's what I believe is the reason we can fall off the eating well wagon....boredom! Who am I kidding it's the reason we can fall out of any habit. You gotta keep it fun!
 
So with that in mind I wanted to show you how I mix up my chia pudding with some simple ingredients I'll typically have on hand in my fridge. And feel free to get creative with yours. You know what you like, so don't be scared to try out something new!
 
Basic Chia Pudding:
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds

  • 1 cup almond milk (or any non-dairy milk of your choice)

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)

Mix all ingredients and refrigerate for a couple hours, preferably overnight. You can double this recipe and it should do you for a few breakfasts for the week.

 

Let's Get Tropical

  • 1 cubed apple or 1 sliced pear (or both)

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

  • pinch nutmeg

  • 1/2 cup pecans

Mix the oats with the chia seeds the night before. You may need to add a touch more milk depending on how thick you like it. Mix apple and/or pear with cinnamon and nutmeg. Layer fruit with chia pudding and top with pecans.
