There is so much to love about a Chia Seed Pudding. It’s an incredibly nutritious and easy recipe that simply proves healthy isn’t boring. Or bland. And to make a Classic Chia Pudding, you only need 3 ingredients.
Because Chia Seeds are virtually tasteless, it makes the recipe very versatile. Although predominately a sweet recipe, there’s no reason why you couldn’t make it savoury if you desired.
Chia seeds are super absorbent and do all the hard work with this recipe too. They’re small but nutritionally mighty, containing high amounts of protein, omega 3s and gut – loving fibre per serve. To gain the most out from their nutritional benefits, it’s best to soak or ground them, as this Pudding recipe requires. Enjoy anytime of day and have fun prepping this easy, tasty treat!
Classic Chia Seed Pudding
- 3 Tbs Chia Seeds
- 1 Cup of liquid *
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 Tbs Protein Powder (optional)
- 1 Tbs Honey or Maple Syrup (optional)
- 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
* Liquid options are endless and include Milks/Mylks, Water, Yoghurts and Kefirs, Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Juices.
In a tall glass, jar or Keep Cup, add chia seeds and liquid and stir until combined. Add Vanilla and options thereafter.
Cover your glass, jar or Cup and refrigerate for 15 – 20 minutes to allow chia seeds to soak and form the pudding. Enjoy it as soon as it has set or leave refrigerated for up to 3 days.
I love preparing puddings in a Keep Cup so I can transport it anywhere, anytime!
