When I was working my 9-6 corporate job, the last thing I wanted to think about is finding the time to make breakfast in the morning.

My mornings usually looked like this – After snoozing a few times, I dragged my body out of bed, threw on some clothes and hit the gym (because I knew I wouldn’t have the energy to do it after work). After showering, I whipped up a quick breakfast and often ate while I put make-up on or blew dry my hair.

Maybe your mornings don’t look as hectic as mine. But either way, this super easy overnight creamy chia pudding will save you a lot of hassle and you get to enjoy a healthy and filling breakfast that will energize your whole day.

Easy, Healthy and Versatile Chia Pudding Reipe

 

Chia seeds are little tiny powerhouses, packed with nutrients, healthy fats, omega-3 fatty-acids, fiber, and protein. Read more about Chia Seeds’ health benefits here.

One of my favorite parts about chia seeds the texture. They gel up when mixing with liquid. I love adding it to my oatmeal or make berry chia jam because of the creamy and jelly-like texture they provide.

You can enjoy this healthy and creamy Chia Pudding as breakfast, snack or dessert. If you know me, the line between breakfast and dessert is pretty blurry.

A few Simple Steps to this Chia Pudding Recipe

When I say this chia pudding recipe will take you under 15 sec to make, I wasn’t joking.

Here is how you do it:

1. Mix chia seeds and milk together (approx. 5 sec)

Firstly, in a mason jar, mix ¼ cup chia seeds with 1 cup coconut milk (see other dairy free alternative options below).

2. Shake it up (approx.. 5 sec)

Second, put cap on the mason jar. Shake it well or give it a good whisk using a fork if you are preparing this chia pudding in a bowl

3. Refrigerate overnight (approx. zero effort)

4. Add Toppings (approx.. 5 sec)

In the morning, simply take the chia pudding jar out of the fridge and add toppings of your choice.

Tip:

To prevent chia seeds from clumping up, you can either give an extra shake or stir after about 15 minutes of soaking, or you can shake it up really well in the morning before serving.

Sometimes I use a little traveling frother to break up the clumps. This will ensure your chia pudding come out smooth and creamy.

Ratio for the Most Creamy Chia Pudding

 

¼ cup chia seeds + ¼ cup liquid of Choice

This ratio is made in order for the chia seeds to soak up all the liquid completely.

You can adjust the texture to your preference accordingly. So if you add more liquid, it will be more watery. Vice versa, if you add less liquid, some of the chia seeds may not get the chance to swell up. The chia pudding will come out more a little chewy and even crunchy.

Tips:

If you accidentally add too much liquid (oops):

In order to save this delicious breakfast, you can microwave the chia pudding for a minute or two. The heat will increase the chia seeds’ ability to soak up a bit more liquid.

Liquid (Dairy Free Alternative) for Chia Pudding

 

In this recipe, I used canned coconut milk to make this chia pudding. But if you are like my husband (not a coconut fan), I’ve got you covered with a few other alternative options below.

1. Coconut Milk

I love using full fat coconut milk for this recipe. It is thick, coconut-y and sweet. It makes the chia pudding extra creamy.

2. Cashew milk or other dairy free milk

I also love using my homemade cashew milk to mix this chia pudding with. You can find the easy 2-ingredient recipe HERE.

3. Other dairy-free Milk:

Oat, hemp, or flax milk.

4. Full Fat Milk (Dairy)

If you don’t have any intolerance or dairy restriction, 1 cup of organic full fat milk will do the justice for this sweet and creamy chia pudding as well.

Spice up the Chia Pudding Breakfast Recipe

You can spice up this simple chia pudding recipe chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, berry, golden milk.. The sky is unlimited when it comes to mix-ins and toppings.
