Creamy Chia Pudding

Lately I have been craving chia pudding for breakfast, which is nice because it is a lot healthier than the other things I have been craving! It is worth all the morning sickness though to have baby #3 on the way!!! I have been waiting for awhile for this sweet baby to come, and I couldn’t be more excited!

I came across this recipe from one of my sweet friends in a neighborhood cooking club. I have tried many different versions of chia pudding, this one is really creamy and tastes amazing.

I love chia pudding because it is so filling. It also is nice for those mornings you don’t have time. You can make it in mason jars at night, and then top it with fruit in the morning and take it on the go with you.

If you have kids with texture issues, I would blend it. You could even add cocoa powder and a little more sweetener, and blend it to make chocolate pudding. Here is a chocolate chia pudding I want to try next.

A note on chia, it is loaded with fiber. But make sure you drink water with it or it can have the opposite effect of cleaning you out! Chia seeds are loaded with iron, protein and omega 3s. How is that for a superfood breakfast on the go? If your whole family likes chia pudding you might want to double the recipe so you have leftovers for other mornings.

    Congratulations on your pregnancy! How wonderful.

    I’m really excited to try this. Just need to pick up a few ingredients first. And thanks for the heads up on different ways to make it more kid-friendly.

    How many servings does this make. Looks like maybe two, but not sure.

      Hi Sandy! It doesn’t make a ton. It fed my family for one morning. I would definitely double it if your family is going to enjoy it with you. It is about two adult servings.

    How many servings does this recipe make? What is the serving size?

    • admin says:

      Hi Sara! I am not sure exact serving size. It fed my whole family for one morning, but we eat a lot. I would definitely double it next time. If it is for one person I imagine it would last a few mornings.

    Can I use reagular milk? I don’t see why not since it has dairy yogurt in it, but figured I would ask.

      Hi Banana! Thanks! You were…I can’t wait. Although I must admit it does scare me to be out numbered! Oh I hope you love it.

    This sounds interesting…where can I find Chia seeds? I’ve never heard of them. Thank you!

  7. Debbie says:

    Congratulations Desi. Love the recipe. Will try it with Siggi’s coconut yogurt.

    I haven’t made these in awhile but love them. The yummy Life is where I first heard about using Chia seeds. Her recipe adds oatmeal. Great for summer.

    I made this last night with almond milk– did exactly what you said and brought it to work in a mason jar for breakfast! It is so delicious- I love the tangy and sweet together (I added just strawberries, no extra sweetener). And it is made from ingredients I almost always have on hand.

    My only suggestion– if you bring it to work, also bring some floss. I got a chia seed stuck in my teeth and it took me some time to get it out!

    Congrats on the baby! 3 is the new 2 πŸ˜‰

    I picked up the ingredients I was missing this evening (maple syrup and Greek yogurt). I have the mixture setting up right now, but I did already try a taste as it is…. YUM!!! Can’t wait to add some fruit to this in the morning and enjoy!

    For anyone who hasn’t tried chia seeds, I definitely recommend them. I eat them in salads usually, but this recipe would be a good one for chia newbies πŸ™‚

  11. Sarah says:

    I made this last night, and we all loved it this morning! My boys are pretty picky, and wary of all things new and different, so I was surprised they finished it.

    I used regular plain yogurt (not Greek), with no milk at all, since I figured the consistency would be the same as thick Greek yogurt + milk. It was perfect! The honey & vanilla were wonderful. Thanks for the new quick & easy breakfast!

  12. Andrea says:

    Sorry if this is a silly question, but when you say to “blend” it- when exactly during the process should I blend it? Just the seeds, after adding in ingredients, after setting, in the morning, before serving??? We’ve tried a chia pudding a couple years back and my family didn’t really dig the texture, so I’d love to give it another go with this tip and recipe!!

    Thanks for sharing! And congrats on number 3- our third turned a year old recently and it has been such an incredible year, we have loved having 3.

      Hi Andrea!

      Yes if the texture bothers you, I would blend it in the blender. That way it will be smooth. I would blend it after it has set up the next morning. Good luck with it!

      Yeah for three! I always feel a sense of relief when my kids turn 1.

    Do you have a print option? I don’t see one. Also, have you considered adding a zip list “save” option? I love your recipes! Thanks!

  14. Beka says:

    Hi Desi,
    I just want to say thank you! I love new recipes that are EASY and that I already have the ingredients! It’s not such an endeavor to try it out. Once my batch is set in the morning I am going to try blending and adding some cocoa. I love my chocolate πŸ˜€ thanks again~

    Hi there! I pinned this back when you first posted and just now tried it. Oh. Em. Gee. I have found a new favorite. Seriously, I was pleasantly surprised this morning by how good it tasted. I made mine with coconut milk and honey and added blueberries and walnuts to it. Yummm!!! Thanks again for sharing the recipe!
