Eating a healthy breakfast is often challenging, especially during busy mornings. So, I prefer make-ahead breakfasts that I can prepare the night before.
This chia breakfast pudding requires only five minutes of prep time, is naturally grain-free, and can be easily customized to include your toppings of choice. The best part is that these highly nutritional chia seeds include both protein and fiber, which will leave you feeling satisfied until lunch time.
For this breakfast pudding recipe, I have included my favorite nut and fruit combination; however, the possibilities are endless when it comes to chia pudding. Feel free to make it your own by incorporating different types of nuts, nut butters, fruit (I love adding pomegranate arils as a garnish), and even additional seeds such as flax or hemp for an extra nutritional boost.
Chia Breakfast Pudding
This recipe requires only five minutes of prep time, is naturally grain-free, and can be easily customized to include your favorite toppings.
- 3 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp non-dairy milk such as almond or coconut milk
- 1/2 banana sliced
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 2 Tbsp walnut pieces
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Mix the chia seeds and non-dairy milk in a small container or bowl, and set it in the fridge for several hours or overnight.
After the mixture has soaked, remove it from the fridge. The soaked chia should have a gelatinous texture.
Layer the chia pudding into a glass or bowl with the nuts, bananas, and blueberries.
Sprinkle with ground cinnamon and serve.
