Why we love Chia Seeds!

Chia seeds have a lot going for them: protein, fiber, omega 3’s, antioxidants, and essential minerals.  They are very neutral in taste and take on flavor readily.

When soaked in liquid, chia seeds set into a “pudding”.  The consistency is similar to tapioca.  Maybe not for everyone?  That’s ok.

How to make chia pudding

Choose your container.  I like using a quart ball jar, a bowl with a lid works too.

Step one:

Add hot boiled water and stir in chia.  This starts hydrating the chia into plump and silky morsels.  Let sit 5 minutes (just about the time it takes to add ingredients in Step two!).

Chia pudding is usually refrigerated overnight to plump up fully.  The hot water speeds up the process allowing you to enjoy the pudding within an hour!

Step two:

Add honey or maple syrup, vanilla and salt.

Step three:

Mix in yogurt and nut milk. Feel free to use vegan yogurt.

Refrigerate, covered, for at least one hour before serving. You can also store in 8 oz containers for 4 portioned servings.

  1. These look amazing! Could you use coconut cream with the nut milk or is there another non-dairy substitute for the Yogurt?

    1. Yes, Kelly, coconut cream would work too! It’s a lot more calorie-dense, but, yes it tasty. Have you ever tried vegan yogurt? Like coconut or cashew yogurt? Perhaps a little lighter, with probiotics. 🙂
