Basic Chia Seed Pudding



I love making chia seed pudding as an alternative to greek yogurt or overnight oatmeal. It takes less than a minute to make

It’s super high in fiber

It’s versatile. It’s sort of like a blank canvas in that you can top it with anything or modify it with any flavors that you like.

They’re packed with omega-3 fatty acids. 2 tbsp of Chia seeds has the equivalent omega-3 fatty acid profile to 4 oz of salmon (great for people like myself who don’t like salmon)

This recipe is for a plain chia seed pudding but because no one wants to look at an ugly picture and I had a mango that was on it’s way out, I layered my plain chia seed pudding with mango puree (which is just frozen mango pureed in a vitamix!).

If you’re looking for other ideas, think about adding cocoa powder, collagen peptides, switching up the liquid and using coconut milk, regular milk or any other plant milk or just adding fresh fruit.
