The perfect delicious and nutritious overnight breakfast for those on the go in the morning, or a great pre or post training or afternoon snack. I’ve shared my berry version of this pudding, but you can include any toppings of your choice – other great options include banana (if you want/need some extra carbs) passionfruit or kiwi fruit when in season, and i’e even created a chocolate version of this with cacao for those who love chocolate like me! 😉
So as you meal prep for your next week, I encourage you to make a batch of Chia Pudding and you’ll have a nutritious breaky or snacks in the fridge for when you have ‘no’ time during the week. 🙂
Easy Berry Chia Pudding
The overnight pudding
- 2 tbsp White Chia Seeds you can use mixed or black, but white 'look' nicer 😉
- 1 cup milk of choice I use oat, coconut or almond milk
- 1 sprinkle cinnamon or as much/little as you like
- 1 dash vanilla bean extract or more, or less, or none… (you get the idea)
- mixed berries of choice fresh or frozen
- mixed nuts/seeds of choice
- yoghurt of choice
- honey / rice malt syrup / maple syrup optional
- The key with a good chia pudding is the seed to liquidratio. I've found 1 tbsp chia seeds to 1/4 cup liquid works best after trialand error. So you can scale the amount you want to make. This recipe makes 2servings.
- Simply add chia seeds with your milk of choice in a jar and stir well until combined. Then add the cinnamon and vanilla and mix again. Then wait a few more minutes for the chia to settle and mix again. This ensures it doesn't separate in the fridge. You can do this a couple of ties if you like, or give the jar a little shake a few times. You just don't want clumps.
- Pop on the lid to the jar and pop in the fridge. Ready to eat in 2hrs, but can be kept in the fridge up to ~5days.
- When ready to eat grab a bowl or another jar and add a layer of berries, a layer of chia and a layer of nuts/seeds and yoghurt. Drizzlewith honey/rice malt syrup or maple syrup (optional) Perfect as breaky or snack on the go!
