Discover the wonderful chia seeds with these 10 game-changing chia pudding recipes that are perfect for breakfast or a healthy, sweet treat!
Chia puddings are super popular on Pinterest, Instagram and among food bloggers and foodies – and for a good reason! Chia seeds are superfoods and they’re extremely healthy. They can bring many benefits to our body and this is why so many people choose to consume them for breakfast or in-between meals, instead of a sugar-packed and unhealthy dessert.
Chia seeds are rich in fibers, proteins, antioxidants and even calcium and Omega-3 fatty acids, which we all know are essential to our well-being. Plus, they’re low in calories, which makes them the perfect ingredient!
Vegan chia puddings are super easy to make. All you need to do is soak the seeds overnight in your choice of milk and when you wake up, you’ll have a nutritious breakfast ready to be enriched with your favorite flavors, ingredients or fruits. What makes chia seeds so great for pudding is the fact that they have little to no flavor, which means they’ll absorb all the taste of the other ingredients you use.

You will find a recipe for every taste here, regardless if you love chocolate, peanut butter, matcha, mango or any other fruits or flavors you can think of.
