Simple Chia Pudding (3 Ways)

This simple, two ingredient chia pudding recipe can be made into a healthy, delicious breakfast. It is vegan, dairy free and gluten free. Chia pudding can be made in just a few minutes, prepped the night before, and grabbed from your fridge in a hurry. It is also a great way to add some protein, fiber, and flavor to help you kick start your morning. I’ve chosen 3 of my favorite flavors, pumpkin pie, banana crunch, and kiwi mandarin. 

-Makes 1 serving-

Simple Chia Pudding Recipe:

1 – 1 1/2 cups of almond milk

1/4 cup of chia seeds

Mix these 2 ingredients together. If you want, mix your choice of fruit or flavoring with it. Let chill for at least an hour. It should be a thick pudding texture and the seeds shouldn’t be as crunchy. If desired you can prep it the day before.

Pumpkin Pie:

7 oz 100% pumpkin puree

Cinnamon to taste

Brown sugar or maple syrup (as desired)

I wanted to try a new flavor, one that matched well with the Fall season. After looking online a little I decided on this one, and I’m pleased I did. It is a new favorite with my boyfriend, and he has encouraged I make it again.

Banana Crunch:

1 banana (mashed)

Granola to taste

A typical breakfast for me is usually a bowl of oats with chia seeds and banana mixed in. I knew this combination would be amazing, and it was!

Kiwi Mandarin:

2 kiwis

1/2 – 1 can mandarin oranges, 100% juice included (as desired)

I love tropical fruit, especially kiwi. I knew that I wanted to make a light, fruity flavor but I didn’t want to use berries. This is my favorite combination. It is a delicious, and different flavor to have for breakfast.

Some other ideas could be to add in yogurt, honey, chocolate, and berries to your simple chia pudding recipe. Whether you make this recipe for breakfast or for a quick, healthy snack it is hard to be disappointed.
