Happy Monday!! I think I’m jumping onto the chia seed pudding really late guys. Buttttt, I don’t want you to be so far behind like me because it’s far too awesome to not know about! HA. If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you’ve noticed for the past few weeks, I’ve been eating a lot of chia seed pudding for breakfast! Well, a ton of you reached out to me asking me about chia seeds, and how to go about making this pudding!
It’s ridiculously easy and fast to make, because I put it together at night in under 2 minutes, and have this awesome breakfast in the morning. Least amount of effort, with maximum benefits. I am here for that friends. Raise your hand if you know exactly what I’m talking about!!
No idea what chia seeds are? Or do you automatically sing that “ch-ch-ch-chia!” song from like the 90s. If you have no idea what jingle I’m talking about, don’t tell me cuz I will feel so. damn. old. #humorme
4 Reasons why you should be consuming chia seeds:
- Rich in fiber, omega 3 fats, proteins, vitamins, and minerals
- Packs a punch of energy boosting power
- Promotes healthy skin, and has anti-aging properties
- Builds stronger bones and muscles
Now that I’ve hopefully convinced you that you need to consume this awesome thing that is the chia seed, let’s get started on making one of the easiest breakfasts or snacks you’ll ever eat! Best part? You only need 4 ingredients.
- 1/3 cup Chia Seeds
- 2 tbsp Maple Syrup (make sure it’s completely pure maple syrup)
- 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1 1/2 cups Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (Or whatever milk you prefer to use! But this is what we always use!)
Combine all the ingredients in a mason jar, or a container that has a lid. Close it up and give it a pretty vigorous shake to make sure it’s all mixed together. I sometimes even have to give it a good stir with a spoon if it isn’t mixing well.
You can let it chill for an hour, but I suggest at least 4 hours if you want it the same day. But, in my opinion, the best is overnight! Make it right before you go to bed, and wake up and grab your breakfast straight out of the fridge to eat!
I like to add some toppings sometimes as well for the kids! Some variations include, fruit (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, orange segments, banana), nuts, coconut flakes, etc!
Pin it for future reference!! I come back to the recipe all the time so I can remember the measurements!
