The Benefits of Chia Seeds:
  • An excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help raise HDL levels, the “good” cholesterol.
  • High in fiber, which helps fill you up.
  • Rich in antioxidants and iron, which is great for overall health.
  • Helps with digestive health.
  • Boost energy and metabolism.
Tips on Making Chia Pudding: 
  • Generally, I make 3 to 4 puddings at a time for the week ahead. That way, I can enjoy one for breakfast, as a late afternoon snack, or as a fun after dinner dessert. So make sure to plan ahead.
  • Let it sit for 30 minutes to thicken up, stirring 2-3 more times to prevent clumping. This is a key step.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour or two before eating. However, I believe, the texture is best if it has set for 8+ hours. So making them on a Sunday evening, for the week ahead, is the perfect idea.
  • When I use yogurt, I divide one yogurt container among two chia pudding servings. Not only do I cut sugars in half, but it still allows me to get that creamy “yogurt” fix that I absolutely enjoy in my pudding.

How Long Does Chia Pudding Last:
  • If stored in an airtight container, chia pudding should last up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
Chia Pudding Toppings: 
  • Kiwi – Did you know? Kiwis have more potassium than a banana, more Vitamin C than an orange, more fiber than the leading cereal brand, and more Vitamin E and K than an avocado.
  • Yogurt – The So Delicious Dairy-Free Coconut Milk Yogurt Alternative is a great option for those that can’t have dairy.
  • Nuts – I love to add almonds! But just make sure to add some form of protein like nuts or nut butter to help balance out the natural sugars in the fruit.
  • Other fun options that I love – mixed berries, cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips, because they’re sugar free. The possibilities are endless!

  1. Naomi handed me a jar of Chia pudding. It looked intriguing, and I asked how much I was supposed to eat. Surely not the entire jar! But that’s what I did. It is soooo good, and it went down easily! What a wonderful treat!

    1. These Chia Puddings are SO good! However, the ones we ate that day were much bigger than normal, because of the pictures I needed to take. (I wanted the layers to be very thick and pronounced). 😉 But, we sure did eat every single bite!
