Chia Seed Pudding

As much as I love my morning gut-healing green smoothie, I find that sometimes I get hungry in the late morning, right after Jack wakes up from his first nap around 11am. So, lately I’ve been having this little snack, which could easily be a full breakfast too!

It’s super easy to make and doesn’t have a ton of ingredients. It’s also packed with omega-3s, in fact, they actually contain more omega-3s than salmon. They’re also high in fiber which is amazing for gut health!

I know some people have a funny thing about the texture of chia, but it doesn’t bother me at all. If you don’t have an issue with it, I highly recommend you try it out. It’s delicious, filling and easy to make! You can also make it the night before for a super quick breakfast.

And, if you don’t love the texture, sprinkle some chia seeds in your smoothie. You’ll get the health benefits and when it’s mixed in a smoothie you don’t notice the texture.

Here’s my easy recipe! What I love about this is that you can tailor it to whatever fruit is in season and fresh. Enjoy!

Pudding

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or other dairy free milk)
