Why are chia seeds healthy?
Chia seeds are a powerhouse ingredient. Just 2 tablespoons of chia seeds has 11 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein and 9 grams of fat (5 of those are omega-3 fatty acids). They are packed with antioxidants and may help with chronic inflammation as well as bone health. Chia seeds definitely live up to their “superfood” name! (Source)
Ingredients in Berry Chia Pudding
- Non-dairy milk – I like using almond milk or coconut milk but any dairy-free milk will work.
- Chia seeds – any chia seeds should work! If you find that your chia seeds are absorbing as much liquid as you’d like, it might be time to buy new chia seeds!
- Berries – I used a mixture of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Either fresh or frozen works for this recipe! You could also sub in different berries like blackberries or mulberries.
- Maple syrup – just a hint of this natural sweetener to balance the berries. Honey or agave works too.
- Vanilla extract – a flavor enhancer to round out the recipe!
Fresh or Frozen Berries?
For this berry chia pudding recipe, either works! I personally like the consistency of fresh berries but frozen berries work just as well. I do find that if I use fresh blueberries, I get more flavor if I mash them up a bit before adding to the mixture.
How to Make Berry Chia Pudding
STEP 1: Stir together all ingredients in a large bowl or mason jar. If you mix in a large bowl, transfer the mixture to a storage container with an airtight lid.
STEP 2: Store in the refrigerator overnight or for at least 8 hours to let the chia seeds absorb the liquid and flavor.
STEP 3: Enjoy cold!
You can keep your chia pudding in your airtight container or mason jar in the fridge for up to 5 days. Over time it will get thicker so you can thin it out with non-dairy milk if desired.
