Easy 3-Ingredient Chia Pudding
Let’s talk chia pudding! If you haven’t tried this healthy nuts breakfast recipe before, now is the time!
The perfect chia pudding consistency is 3-4 Tablespoons of chia seeds to 1 cup of liquid.
The type of liquid is up to you and will vary based on preference and dietary restrictions. I love using plant-based milk like almond milk, cashew milk, and coconut milk. They give the chia pudding a creamy consistency that’s really nice. Full-fat canned coconut milk is great if you’re looking to increase the thickness and make a really filling breakfast, snack, or dessert out of the chia pudding.
The chia seeds start to absorb the liquid pretty quickly, but you do need to give the pudding a bit of time to build the gel-like consistency. I recommend 1 -2 hours or overnight.
- 2 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1/2 cup coconut milk or milk of choice
- nut & fruit mix (I used a perfect balanced mix from Healthy Mix No2)
Pour ingredients into a jar and mix well. Let settle for 2-3 minutes then mix again very well until you see no clumping.
Cover the jar and store in the fridge overnight or for at least 2 hours.
When you’re ready to eat it, top it with your favorite fruit and enjoy the cold!
No rules for this meal, you can add anything you love – dried goji, raspberry, and melon (on the photo below). Without sugar. Buuuut put a little bit less honey 😸
