This week I made a delicious and super easy Chia Seed Pudding recipe
It came up to me as I was searching for a light breakfast which I can make ahead for at least a few days.
In summer time I really can’t eat carbs and protein-packed breakfasts.
My tummy just won’t have them.
And I also don’t have the time to make breakfast every morning, that’s why I thought this chia seed pudding recipe fits just perfect.
It’s light, easy to make and you can store it for 3 days in the fridge.
Yup, you can actually make 3 days worth of breakfast in literally no time.
Sounds too good to be true?
Well, we’ll see about that in a bit.
First of all, you probably want to know a few things about Chia Seeds. So I thought the infographic below might be helpful. But if you want to know more about it just check out this recipe where I went in-depth about Chia Seeds and their benefits.
Now that you know why you should eat more Chia, you might ask yourself how hard is it to make Chia Seed Pudding?
Oh well, the prepping takes about 5 minutes and then you need to leave it in the fridge for a minimum of two hours. And … that’s about it.
You can make breakfast for three days by cooking just 5 minutes.
How great is that?
But apart from being so easy to make and so healthy, there one more treat to this Chia Seed Pudding recipe.
Do you know what that is?
Simplez…. It sooo yummmmy!!
And it’s packed with so many refreshing fruits that make it the best Chia Seed Pudding recipe for this summer. I mean, just take a look at the ingredients: papaya, strawberries, passion fruit… This is a delicious fruity madness.
But you know me, how I always experiment in the kitchen. So I thought what would make this chia seed pudding recipe even better?
What would make this chia pudding more filling and even healthier?
And the first thing that came to my mind was my favorite mango smoothie.
Do they blend well?
But as I said in the beginning, whenever you’re experimenting with new recipes expect to make mistakes. This time I was lucky because everything fitted perfectly with the Chia Seed pudding. But there are times when recipes require a few trials (and failures) before coming to perfection.
And that’s why I said you’re lucky to have me. I am perfecting the recipes so you don’t have to burn the kitchen by experimenting. Leave that to me :))
The recipe for the smoothie is way too simple to go much into detail. You have the ingredients and instructions for it below, with the Chia Seed Pudding recipe, and you can make it in just 5 minutes.
You can also make this smoothie separately and have it whenever you want, not just with the Chia seed pudding.
