Let’s talk chia pudding! If you haven’t tried chia pudding before, now is the time. It’s the perfect healthy breakfast or snack to meal prep and it’s super easy to make!
There are a TON of chia seed recipes out there (and I have dozens posted here on EBF), but if you’re chia newbie, chia pudding is an awesome place to start because you’ll get a real sense of their absorption power, the gel-like texture chia seeds create and their ability to help keep you full.
To make chia pudding, you really only need two simple ingredients: chia seeds and milk. I like using non-dairy options like almond milk, oat milk or coconut milk, but any type of milk will work. Once you have the basic recipe you can add spices, sweetener and toppings to really boost the flavor of your pudding!
Why is Chia Pudding Healthy?
Chia pudding is incredibly healthy because chia seeds are loaded with omega 3 fatty acids, protein, antioxidants and fiber. The soluble fiber in chia seeds can help with weight loss by keeping you feeling full and it can also help with constipation. So in case you were wondering, chia pudding can definitely help keep you regular, if you know I what mean! Learn more about the health benefits of chia seeds here.
