My Chia Seed Pudding Love Afair

It’s no secret that I’m having a personal love affair with Matcha Powder lately, so to feed my addiction, I’ve created a super tasty and SUPER healthy treat you can enjoy as a light breakfast or filling snack!

I love making chia seed “puddings.” No, it’s not a custard-based pudding. What gives it it’s thick pudding-like texture, is the addition of chia seeds that plump up when added to liquid. The result is almost like tapioca, except the chia seeds still have the tiniest little crunch to them.

And in case you aren’t familiar with chia seeds, chia seeds are an edible seed that contains healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium. They don’t have much taste by themselves, but they absorb the flavors of whatever they’re soaked in. And yes, they are the same seeds used in Chia Pets!

One of my favorite things about chia seed pudding is it can be made ahead of time and eaten throughout the week. I like to assemble mine in pint-size mason jars, or any other small Tupperware, and keep them stocked in my fridge to eat as a light breakfast or quick healthy snack. You can even make them in the actual jar by adding in enough ingredients to make one serving, then put on your lid and shake until thoroughly mixed, then leave in your fridge overnight, or until that afternoon slump comes around and you need a quick pick me up!
