Blueberry Chia Pudding

Jul 28, 2016 | Recipes | 0 comments

Blueberry chia pudding is lightly sweet and full of healthy fats and vegetarian protein. Use your favorite fruit to make it your own!

I have to admit to jumping on the chia pudding bandwagon a little late. But I am so glad that I did, and now I am obsessed. And those tiny chia seeds pack quite a nutrient punch. A 2T serving provides:

  • Fiber: 11 grams.
  • Protein: 4 grams.
  • Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are Omega-3s).
  • Calcium: 18% of the RDA.
  • Manganese: 30% of the RDA.
  • Magnesium: 30% of the RDA.
  • Phosphorus: 27% of the RDA.
  • They also contain a decent amount of Zinc, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Potassium, Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) and Vitamin B2.**

Chia puddings are perfect for breakfast, dessert (make a parfait like in the picture above) or a quick snack. Quick tip: I make mine with no added sweetener, but use honey as needed to taste. Also, feel free to sub your favorite fruit into the recipe, like cherries or mango.

Blueberry Chia Pudding

Ingredients

  • 11 oz lite coconut milk*
  • 2 Tbsp honey (optional)
  • 3/4 cups chia seeds
  • 2 cups blueberries (frozen or fresh)

Instructions

  • Whisk together the following: 11 oz lite coconut milk, 2 cups water, 2 Tbsp honey, if using.
  • Stir in 3/4 cups chia seeds and 2 cups blueberries.
  • This will be ready in 2-4 hours, but it is best to let it soak overnight. Recommend stirring 1-2 times before eating to distribute chia seeds & to soak up any excess liquid.
