Pudding for Breakfast

You're on your way to something delicious and nutritious with these seeds.

I'm always looking for easy grab-and-go breakfasts that are packed full of nutrients. Chia seed pudding checks all the boxes. Chia seeds are rich in vitamins and minerals, plus brain powering omega-3s. When combined with calcium rich milk, the seeds expand and form a gelatinous substance similar to pudding. Yum! I like to mix the ingredients together in a mason jar at night and then toss it in my work bag on the way out the door in the morning. Another great thing about chia seed pudding? The chia seeds themselves are bland like oatmeal, so the pudding can be easily customized with whatever add-ins you like. 

Basic Chia Seed Pudding

3 Tbsp Chia Seeds
2/3 cup Milk (I used coconut milk)
1 tsp Agave Nectar
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract

Place all ingredients in a sealable container, such as a mason jar. Shake well to combine the ingredients. Refrigerate for at least two hours prior to eating. Top with your favorite fruit or granola. Here I pair it with kiwi and blueberries.

Add your ingredients and SHAKE.
After a little refrigerator magic...
Add toppings galore!

My Favorite Variations

Earl Grey Pudding
Heat the milk as you would for tea. Steep one earl grey tea bag in the milk for about  an hour, until it has a strong tea flavor. Then continue with the basic recipe.

Raspberry Rose Pudding
Using the basic recipe, replace the agave nectar with rose syrup. Once the pudding has set in the fridge, top with raspberries and slivered almonds.
