Oh chia pudding, oh how we love you, or at least how we think we should. Chia pudding is a fantastic, easy, wonderfully nourishing 10-minute breakfast for mornings when you don’t have time to cook. It’s wonderfully creamy when made right and comes loaded with fiber, omega-3s, protein, and iron to keep you going strong throughout the day.
What kept me from falling in love with chia pudding for quite some time was the perception I had that it was boring. Not true! This amazing plant-based and gluten-free food is the easiest thing in the world to customize and I’m going to show you exactly how.
This is the recipe for the perfect light vanilla chia pudding. It’s made with almond milk instead of coconut yogurt or coconut oil and is flavored with only honey, vanilla extract, and cinnamon – that’s it! Make this no-fuss breakfast the night before or the morning of, then take it with you out the door.
Top with endless combinations of frozen or fresh berries, granolas, and nut butters for a breakfast that’s always easy but never boring.
