QUICK AND EASY CHIA PUDDING

I love having chia pudding for breakfast. It’s super easy to make and it’s loaded with protein, fiber, and healthy fats.

This is a quick and easy recipe that will take you less than 10 minutes to make (if you don’t count soaking the seeds).

I added a small amount of blue spirulina powder to give it a gorgeous blue hue. If you prefer pink vibes, add pink pitaya powder instead. And for purple vibes, mix together blue spirulina and pink pitaya powder.

CHIA SEEDS – THE NEW SUPERFOOD

Chia seeds are often referred to as a superfood.  And for a good reason:

  • These tiny seeds are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for our health – they help to keep the cholesterol lipid levels within a healthy range.
  • Furthermore, chia seeds are relatively high in protein – 28-gram, or 1-ounce, serving of chia seeds contains 5.6 grams of protein.
  • They are rich in fiber – a 25g portion of chia seeds contains approximately 9g of fiber. Fiber is super important for a healthy digestive system.
  • They are a significant source of calcium – a 25g portion of chia contains 157mg.
  • The combination of fat, protein, and fiber supports a healthy heart and stable blood-sugar levels.

BLUE SPIRULINA POWDER

This beautiful blue color comes from blue spirulina powder. Blue spirulina is a blue pigment derived from blue-green algae. It’s very rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, and antioxidants.

This powder is very mild in flavor, almost flavorless. It’s perfect for coloring raw cakes, smoothies, lattes, noodles, rice, and more.

HOW TO MAKE EASY CHIA PUDDING

You can find a complete list of ingredients with exact amounts and instructions in the recipe card below.
STEP 1

Whisk together 200 ml almond milk, chia seeds, and sweetener (if using) in a bowl. Let it sit for 5 minutes and then whisk again to prevent it from clumping. Leave it at room temperature for 45 minutes.

STEP 2

Add 150 g coconut yogurt, 50 ml almond milk, and 1 teaspoon blue spirulina powder to the chia mixture and stir well until combined.

Note: If the pudding looks a bit thick, you can add an extra few tablespoons of almond milk and stir again.

SERVING SUGGESTION

Serve in jars, top with coconut yogurt and fresh or frozen berries. Enjoy!

Note: The pudding is ready to eat right away.

Hi, Caroline! I’m not sure what you mean!? What kind of extraneous information? You can’t email only the recipe card, you can just email yourself the link to a blog post. That’s just how things work at the moment. If you want just the recipe card, you can print it. Anyway, thank you for stopping by.
