Vanilla Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding

I understand “Chia Seed Pudding” doesn’t sound like the most intriguing dessert. But before you click “next” hear me out for a second :)

We’ve talked about the health benefits of chia seeds a few times on our blog. Chia seeds are high in fiber (5 grams per tablespoon) and rich in Omega-3s, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. They are also claimed to help you feel full faster and stay full longer. This is because when chia seeds get wet they form a “gel,” which takes your body a long time to fully digest. We like to throw them in our smoothies or use them as an egg replacement.

So here is a way to eat a wholeeee lotta chia seeds in one sitting… and actually enjoy it ;)

    Hi.. I tried to make the blueberry chia seed pudding and found it to be very liquidy rather then pudding like. I followed the recipe exact. Any tips for thicker consistency ? Thanks!

      Hi Amanda! Best is to leave it over night in your refrigerator. The longer it sits, the thicker it will be. Just keep it mind it won’t get as thick as chocolate pudding. It’s kind of a slippery pudding if that makes any sense!

    I was really dubious about chia pudding. I relunctedly made this pudding and boy am I glad I did! This recipe if AWESOME.It is absolutely delicious. I bought a chia pod at the store and this recipe is so much better!

    We made the vanilla chia seed pudding tonight with homemade almond milk, and it was amazing! It only took a little over an hour to set.
