Breakfast Chia Pudding

Updated: 3 days ago

My breakfast chia pudding is our all-time favorite way to start our day!

So many of you have asked me for my chia pudding recipe, and so, today I’m happily sharing it with everyone. Knowing the numerous health benefits of this recipe and that you will be feeding it to your families makes me happier than you can imagine!

In my best cheerleading chant...I was never a cheerleader, but you can use your imagination!


Elise's Cheerleading Routine - (Sleepy individual waking up to this...)


“It's a brand-new day! Dig into that chia pudding!

Feed your garden! And by garden, I mean your microbiome!

Let's get pooping!

Eat those phytonutrients!

Let those chia seeds do their thing!

Increase those antioxidants!

Reduce hunger!

Increase the antioxidant effects by combining yogurt and chia seeds, increase satiety (that’s fullness) and short effects of the chia seed by combining it with yogurt!"

Okay, so maybe I need to work on the last part a bit!


HEALTH BENEFITS:


- Just one ounce of chia seeds packs a whopping 10 grams of fiber.

- Chia seeds contain more protein than most plant foods.

- Chia seeds are an excellent source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids which help to support your gut health.

- They contain more calcium than milk.

- Its insoluble fiber acts as a prebiotic that is what feeds the friendly bacteria that call your gut home.

- Yogurt soothes the stomach and is a great source of protein.

- The probiotics in yogurt also help to improve your gut health.

- Your immune system lies within your gut, so the foods you eat matter!

Let’s get to the recipe!


A pretty tall glass is layered with purple chia pudding, homemade granola, and fresh berries. Elise's table is decorated with chargers and her favorite William Morris placemats and blue cloth napkins.
Chia Pudding

Chia Pudding


2 cups organic plain Greek yogurt (should not contain sugar or fat)

2 cups unsweetened coconut milk

1 tbsp. pure vanilla extract

2 tbsp. organic honey

1/2 cup chia seeds

Optional: 1 to 2 tsp freeze-dried organic blueberry powder (We like Numami Organic Wild Blueberry Powder)


Top with fresh berries, homemade granola, ground flaxseeds, hemp hearts, and ground cinnamon. Whisk yogurt, coconut milk, vanilla, honey, chia seeds and blueberry powder in a large bowl. Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight. Enjoy!


Will last up to five days.

The best way to serve this chia pudding is with a good granola. My homemade granola is filled with nuts, seeds, coconut, and olive oil which are the types of fantastic fats that your body needs for the day!

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get started!
