Chia Seed Pudding - It's What's For Breakfast!

Chia Seeds are a super healthy seed high in Omega-3 fatty acids and protein. If your wondering, chia seeds are actually higher in Omega-3's than salmon... I won't bore you with all the facts about these magical seeds, just do a google search for them or check out some info here.

Just like the Chia Pet from the 80's, these seeds also expand when soaked in liquid. It may look like creepy/slimy/scary stuff, but it tastes really good! If you've never had chia seed pudding before, it does take some getting used to. The best way I can describe it is like a crunchy/seedy tapioca pudding. The flavor will end up tasting like whatever you put inside of it. It is really easy to make either the night before you eat it, or right before you leave for work. What I did today was made my chia seed pudding in a to-go tupperware... and by the time I arrived to work, the seeds magically turned into my breakfast pudding!



Chia Seed Pudding with Fresh Berries
by Sarah Farsh June 5th, 2012
  • 1/2 cup dried chia seeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened soy milk, or non dairy milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp pure honey or maple syrup
  • 1 large handful fresh blueberries
  • 1 large handful fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
In a bowl or tupperwear, stir all ingredients together. Cover bowl or tupperwear, and refrigerator for 15min. After 15min, stir chia seed mixture well. Refrigerator again overnight, or an additional 15-20min. You'll know when your pudding is ready once chia seeds take on their gel like form.
