Happy Mothers Day Moms! My gift to you is a delicious and healthy recipe, that can be used whenever you need a day off from cooking breakfast. This Chia Seed Pudding takes just 5 min to prep, and can be prepared the night before. The magic that turns these little seeds into a pudding delight, actually happens in the fridge, overnight, while you are (hopefully) sleeping.
Chia Seed pudding with coconut and raspberries is packed full of insanely healthy micronutrients. This whole grain superfood holds fiber, protein and omega 3s. With 5 grams of fiber per tablespoon, they are a great daily addition to any diet.
Chia Seeds may seem on the expensive side, but you’ll get your money’s worth. When soaked in a liquid, chia seeds can expand up to about 8 times their size! I used Flax Milk in this recipe to add an extra boost of protein power, but any milk should yield the same result.
Chia Seed Pudding is a great recipe for new moms, and kiddos. It’s…
- Super delicious
Our Little One liked them, but she’s pretty good with trying new things. She likes ginger, spinach, cucumber pineapple smoothies. That’s probably not normal. If your kiddos tend to be more on the particular side, try adding chia seed pudding to fruits they are familiar with, and already enjoy.
For nursing moms, these powerful little seeds can also naturally enhance milk production.
I was so excited to eat this pretty chia seed pudding, that I did no think to add pecans, until I already finished half of my cup. Which is why there are not pecans in the pictures, if you were wondering. However, if you like pecans, you will definitely want them in this Chia Seed Pudding. So make sure to throw some in!
Do you prefer a hot breakfast? Chia Seed Pudding is also an excellent accompaniment to any oatmeal bowl. (Shown below). Warm oatmeal, with chia seed pudding, strawberries, banana, almonds, and granola.
