Chia Pudding Healthy Snack
Chia pudding is one of my go-to snacks because it’s healthy, delicious and easy. There are a lot of ways to make chia pudding but today I want to share a few of my favorite combinations and how you can get super creative with your own pudding creations. My kids never seem to like the same things so luckily it’s easy to mix up two different flavors. Or I just make a plain vanilla one and they add their own toppings.
Basic Chia Pudding
Once you’ve got the basics of making chia pudding down you’ll be able to create any combination of flavors your family loves.
6 Tablespoons of chia seeds to 2 Cups of liquid
From there the options are endless! Just make sure to mix each combination up thoroughly so the chia seeds are evenly distributed and any powders dissolve completely. Try these and feel free to experiment with your own favorite flavor combos.
Here are some of my favorite combos
- Pina Colada – 6 Tablespoons chia seeds + ½ Cup pineapple juice + 1 ½ Cups coconut milk
- Razzies and Cream – 6 Tablespoons chia seeds + ½ Cup pureed raspberries + 1½ Cups almond or coconut milk
- Orange Creamsicle – 6 Tablespoons chia seeds + ½ Cup orange juice + 1 ½ Cups coconut cream
- Chocolate Dream – 6 Tablespoons chia seeds + 2 Cups almond or coconut milk + 1 Tablespoon cacao powder + 3-5 drops stevia
Often to make things easy I just make a batch of the plain vanilla one below and then we add our own toppings. Here are some topping suggestions:
- Coconut flakes
- Cacao nibs
Healthy, yummy snack.
- 2 cups coconut, almond or hemp milk
- 6 tbsp chia seeds
- 5 drops stevia or 1 Tbsp honey
- 3 tsp pure vanilla extract
Add all ingredients to a jar or container with tight lid.
Shake to mix ingredients.
Refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight.
Add additional toppings when serving if desired.
I have made this both with whole chia seeds and with blending it in the blender. We prefer the whole chia seeds but you can try it both ways and see which your family prefers.
