Blueberry Kefir Chia Pudding

May 6, 2014

This Blueberry Kefir Chia Pudding combines two heart-healthy ingredients, kefir and chia seeds to make a delicious and flavorful dessert or snack recipe! 

I like to think that I know a lot about health foods and trends. I can tell you about the difference between chia, hemp and flax seeds, inform you on lemon water, and tell you how to pronounce quinoa. BUT that doesn’t mean that I am always learning! I was recently chatting with my friend Lee and she casually brought up kefir. I had no idea what it was but in classic Davida fashion, set out to learn everything there was to know about this new-to-me food.

What is kefir?

Kefir is basically a drinkable yogurt. It is a fermented drink, traditionally made using cow’s or goat’s milk. It contains a wide range of probiotic strains that are beneficial for gut health.

You can actually make kefir at home but I have yet to tackle that project. Find it at your local health foods store in the refrigerator section.

You can drink kefir on it’s own, swap out your liquid in smoothies for kefir and/or use kefir as the liquid in chia pudding. I’m excited to keep experimenting with this ingredient!

How to Make Kefir Chia Pudding

Start by blending the blueberries and kefir in a blender until well combined. Mix the blueberry/kefir mix with the almond milk and chia seeds in an airtight container. I love using major jars! Refrigerate for at least 6 hours (or overnight), add your toppings and enjoy!

    I bought milk kefir for my dog! She has a couple of serious health problems and needs NSAIDS for life- not great, but hoping it will protect her tummy.It smelt terrible but she loved it.
    Then realised I could make it !
    Bought ‘grains’ on Amazon and organic whole milk.
    The result was awesome – really impressed myself !
    SO easy and cheap plus doesn’t smell bad.
    I will now start making chia and organic blueberry pudding with it because your’s looks amazing.
    Next step is to experiment with plant milks as I am vegan and would love to try it too.
    So thank you very much Davida-get cracking with making the kefir ! It is honestly simplicity itself. There are great you tube videos too.
