The Best Chia Pudding
Only 4 ingredients, this Chia Pudding is a healthy breakfast or snack loaded with fiber, omega-3s and antioxidants. It takes 5 minutes to make and is perfect for meal prepping!
When I was first introduced to chia pudding, I was hooked. Every now and then I forget about how good it is and then I’m reminded of it and I become hooked again. If you haven’t tried chia pudding, now is the time! It’s creamy, indulgent, and a wonderful choice for a healthy breakfast or snack. It’s also incredibly easy to make, containing just a few simple ingredients.
Chia seeds are low in calories, high in fiber, protein, and loaded with antioxidants. Chia seeds expand when they reach your stomach, which means they keep you full for long. Low in calories and filling makes chia pudding the ideal breakfast or snack.
I like to prep my chia pudding at the beginning of the week in glass jars. These are the jars I use – they’re great quality and the perfect size to keep you satisfied but not full! It’s a great option for grab & go breakfast or a filling snack. The perks of making chia pudding in advance is that you’ll always have a nutritious option ready to enjoy on the go!
Chia Pudding Ingredients
