On a recent trip, I popped into a restaurant and purchased some chia pudding so that I could have something healthy eat while I was “on the go”. Of course, the mark up for healthy “convenience” food is crazy, so that inspired me to make my recipe for my own vanilla chia seed pudding when I got back home.

Chia seeds are an important health food that has been used foe centuries by the Aztecs and Mayan populations. Chia seeds are a great source of protein. Just one ounce contains 5.6 grams of it. They are also a great source of fiber, calcium, manganese and more. For a small seed, they certainly pack the nutritional punch!

Although chia seeds don’t have to be cooked prior to cooking, they do have to be soaked. Once liquid is added to chia seeds, it forms a sort of gel. That’s why chia pudding makes so much sense.

People ask me for quick and healthy breakfast recipes all the time. Some of my go-to healthy breakfast ideas are egg frittata, or ham and egg breakfast cups and homemade grain-free cereal .

But when it comes to grab and go healthy breakfasts, this vanilla chia pudding is up there. You simple mix it together and put it into mason jars the night before and then add the toppings in the morning. Depending on what your toppings are, you could potentially add some the night before as well.

But when it comes to certain fresh fruits like strawberries and bananas, I don’t like them to set too much. After that, it’s just grab and go in the morning. Besides being an overnight recipe, one of my favorite parts of this vegan chia recipe is that you can tweak or customize it any way you want once you get the basic recipe down.

I recently stocked up on mason jars for some of our crazy homeschool and travel mornings.

Tip: Start with chilled coconut cream for a thicker and creamier chia pudding.

Having this breakfast already prepared ahead of time will makes things so simple. You can use any dairy-free milk alternative that you want but, I like the creaminess of coconut milk. Use this chia seed pudding recipe as a healthy breakfast, satisfying dessert or simple snack.
