Easy 5 Ingredient Chia Pudding

Chia pudding is an ideal breakfast or light dessert. The cool, creamy pudding serves as a delicious base for topping with your favorite nuts and fruits!   

It can be vegan and naturally gluten-free. If you've never tried chia pudding, I'd compare it to the chewy texture of tapioca pudding.  

Chia seeds are lauded for their numerous nutritional benefits, as well as their ability to help with weight loss by making you feel full.  

Chia seeds provide antioxidants, minerals, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids. According to healthline.com, these nutrients help maintain a variety of bodily functions and systems. Surprisingly, they are nearly flavorless and instead absorb the flavor of the drink.  

Sweetener: Use the sweetener of your choosing. Options include true maple syrup, honey, agave, monk fruit, normal sugar, maple sugar, and coconut sugar. I like honey or real maple syrup.  

Vanilla: Use your preferred vanilla extract, paste, or scrape vanilla beans off whole pods if you have any on hand. Flavorings/Mix-ins: Vary the flavor of your pudding by incorporating different foods and/or spices.   

Fresh fruit, pureed fruit or mashed banana, protein powder, cinnamon, cardamom, chocolate, nuts or nut butter: almond, peanut, cashew, macadamia, walnut, pistachio, chocolate hazelnut spread (nutella), sunflower butter.  

Milk: Choose according to your nutritional needs and preferences. Options include dairy milk, coconut milk, almond milk, oat milk, macadamia nut creamer, cashew milk, soy milk, half and half, and heavy cream.
