BERRY CHIA PUDDING

I’ve been a little slow on the chia pudding front.  But, I have finally got the quantities perfect and made a berry chia pudding that I absolutely love!  Chia seeds are good for sooooo many reasons, but I mainly love them for their fat and fibre.  Yip, I love their fat.

Chia seeds contain Omega-3 fatty acids and dietary fibre, both of which are important for a healthy diet.  Dietary fibre (the fibre that isn’t broken down or digested by the body) is important for digestive health and may also reduce blood cholesterol.  Omega-3 fatty acids are vital for the body to function and must be provided by diet because the body can not make these naturally.  They are important for development and optimal brain functioning.  Do you feel like eating some chia seeds yet?

If you are after a super sweet pudding then this recipe might not be for you, but if you are looking for a creamy and satisfying HEALTHY breakfast/dessert/snack then HELLO!  Glad I could help you!

You might also be surprised to learn that I don’t usually eat this berry chia pudding on it’s own.  I actually use it as an additive to my morning zoats, smoothies, and to my son’s breakfast.  Although, it is totally delicious and nourishing enough to have as a pudding too!

Recipe serves four.  Once made, you can store in the fridge.  This recipe is best made and left to set in the jar/dish you intend to serve from.

Have you tried chia pudding before?  Thoughts?

  1. I have just finished a P.T. session so I could eat one of these now. It looks delicious so thank you for sharing at #WednesdaysWisdom

    1. YUM. I first used almond milk but then didn’t try it again for a while. The coconut water recipe has been my favourite so far, I think because it isn’t as rich as pure coconut milk. x

  2. YES!!! Chia Puddings are the best! I often make a big batch and it keeps me going for days. Love it!! Thanks so much for linking up with our Fabulous Foodie Fridays party. Hope you have a great weekend. xx

      1. Might be but as I found them here in sweden in the pantry of our home swap, I think it’s called the same. So I’ll try your recipe now, you don’t cook them at all? And i’m so happy that I finally found here those pretty little jar! xx

  3. […] SEVEN. Chia seeds.  Chia seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids and dietary fibre, both of which are important for a healthy diet.  Dietary fibre (the fibre that isn’t broken down or digested by the body) is important for digestive health and may also reduce blood cholesterol.  Omega-3 fatty acids are vital for the body to function and must be provided by diet because the body can not make these acids naturally (hence them being essential).  They are important for development and optimal brain functioning.  See one of my favourite berry chia pudding recipes here.
