Healthy Chia Seed Pudding Recipe

With the beautiful hot summer weather upon us, I just knew I had to come up with a light, refreshing and fruity pudding recipe.  After all, everyone is gasping for something light and refreshing in this heatwave we're having in the UK!  And of course so many people are raging about the famous chia seed pudding, that I knew that I just had to share my own chia seed pudding recipe with you.


I made a batch at the weekend, so I filmed the process to give you a detailed step by step guide.  By batch, I typically mean 4 servings, but for the purposes of the video, I turned it into 3 generous servings.  This is a fabulous and versatile pudding recipe because you can top it with any kind of fruit, including mango, strawberries, raspberries etc.

Also, instead of almond milk, of course you can use hemp milk, or coconut milk etc.  Plus, you can totes turn this into a vegan recipe; you can just leave out the Greek yoghurt, remembering that the ratio you will therefore require is 3 tbsps chia seeds to 1 cup of almond milk (or whatever milk you prefer).  And you can substitute the honey for some maple syrup.

But of course, the chia seed pudding doesn't only have to be a dessert; oh no.  It tastes a little bit like a delish fruity museli, and therefore can be had at breakfast too.  This is a great time saver, because part of the recipe is to leave the chia seeds soaking overnight, so you'll always have a ready batch in the morning.  They can also be enjoyed as a sneaky snack!

Here is my recipe and step by step guide:-

Ingredients
1.5 cups of almond milk, 1.5 cups of 0% fat free Greek yoghurt, 6 tbsps of chia seeds, 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence, 2 table spoons of honey or maple syrup.
For the topping: 1 cup of chopped almonds, 1.5 cups of blueberries, 1 or 2 tablespoons of honey (or maple syrup).

This is so diverse, I've even added other spices etc before instead of vanilla essence - you could add half a teaspoon of cinnamon, ginger, cocoa powder, cardamon, wheatgrass, and you could top it with goji berries instead, amongst other fruit.

So go on, give it a try and let me know what you think. Feel free to subscribe to my youtube channel here and also please visit my Instagram page, my facebook page, my pinterest page and my twitter account.

Take care, and don't forget to put on some sun cream!

  2. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, Chia seeds offer the highest volume of Omega-3, as well as addition fiber (soluble and insoluble) along with vitamins or perhaps minerals you don’t usually get whenever you take sea food oil. Chia seeds giving you long lasting energy during the day moving in deep, restful sleep during the night time. May read this article about Chia seeds at:
