Why you’ll love this vegan vanilla chia seed pudding recipe:

  • There’s a reason chia seeds are considered a superfood – they’re super healthy and known for their heart healthy attributes. This recipe (four total servings) gives you roughly 20 grams of protein and 36 grams of fiber, along with a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids.
  • This is the perfect recipe to keep a versatile breakfast, snack or dessert on hand. It will stay good in the refrigerator for up to six days, when kept in an airtight container. Use it for a grab-and-go breakfast or to resist the temptation of settling for an unhealthy snack.

How to make this vanilla chia pudding perfect:

  • Serve it with your favorite fruits: This chia pudding can be topped with or served with your favorite fruits. Some of my personal favorites to pair with this recipe are oranges, kiwi, pineapple, blueberries, grapes and strawberries. But your options are virtually endless.
  • Pair it with nuts or granola: Nuts and/or granola are also a great, nutritious option to pair with this pudding. You can’t go wrong with chopped nuts or goji berry granola.
  • Mason jar it up: If you follow this blog, then you probably know I’m a big fan of mason jars – and using them for this recipe is a great idea. Not only are mason jars great for storage, they’re also great for easily combining recipes such as this one – you just give them a nice shake and you’re done.
  • Add a bit of sugar: If your taste buds are craving some sweetness, you can add sugar to this recipe. I personally don’t find this necessary, but you can use sugar to tailor the sweetness of this pudding to your personal preference.
