This Loaded Kiwi Chia Pudding is dairy & gluten-free! It’s made with oat milk, is naturally sweetened with honey, and is my go-to recipe for a healthy breakfast or light dessert option.
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 this Loaded Kiwi 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. FYI: This Clear Glass Bowl with Lid Set of 12 from Crate & Barrel is what I use to store my chia puddings in.
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 who can’t have dairy. I use the unsweetened one because it is very clean and contains just 1 gram of sugar.
- 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!
