Mixed Berry Chia Pudding

A fast and easy, healthy and delicious start to your day. Chia seeds, frozen fruit and nuts make this pudding high protein and a real energy boost.

Chia seeds are a super popular super food. They are very nutritious with a high levels of protein, calcium, fibre and many other essential nutrients that vegans and non vegans need. My favorite way of eating them is in a chia breakfast pudding. Mixed with plant based milk, frozen or fresh fruit and a little stevia leaf powder, they are a healthy and delicious way to start your day.

So easy to make

Chia pudding is very easy to make. You just blend the milk with fruit until smooth. Stir in whole chia seeds and let it set in the fridge. Setting takes at least one hour but you can also make it the night before.

I like to make breakfasts bowls with chia pudding. For this recipe I usually do make the pudding the night before. In the morning I add a few energy balls, some trail mix and fruit and that’s it. So easy to make and to enjoy!

The fall is a busy time for most people and starting your day with a good breakfast is important. For those who are rushed in the morning or want a satisfying but lighter breakfast, chia and fruit puddings are perfect. We also need to eat more fruit in the fall, so these are a great way to get a serving. Enjoy!
