Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding with Berries

Berry Chia Seed Pudding
I enjoy a nice hearty breakfast but ever since we got back from our food-fueled holiday trip to Europe I’ve been eating lighter morning meals. This sweet chia seed pudding is vegan, dairy-free and the perfect healthy dish for breakfast, or even dessert! You can also easily double (or triple) the amount, make ahead of time and leave in the fridge for breakfast during the week.

Chia seeds are super healthy. I used these organic chia seeds from Nutiva. They’re packed with omega-3 fatty acids, high in fiber and has a great source of protein. Fresh fruit is best for this recipe but frozen bagged fruit works. Just make sure to thaw completely before blending. This recipe is adapted from Food Babbles.

    Love the berries idea! Another fun idea is to do chia seeds, coconut milk and a scoop of vegan chocolate protein powder. My kids think it is “dessert for breakfast”!

    This is a delicious, lite, dessert. I topped it with a spoonful of whipped cream to satisfy a craving, and it did the job. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Barb. 🙂
