Chai Spice Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seed pudding is a magical thing. You can eat it for breakfast, as a snack, or even dessert! Chia seeds absorb liquid and develop a gel-like texture, making them great for a pudding recipe!

Chia seeds are packed with fiber, protein, and lots of vitamins and minerals, which makes this dish a great healthy alternative to those snack packs you used to bring for lunch and lick the lid of. Their fiber helps with sustained energy, and the minimal amount of sugar in this recipe means that you’ll keep going for longer – without the crash!

So let’s get down to HOW to make chia seed pudding. Guess what? It’s extremely simple. The important thing to remember is the ratio of chia seeds to liquid – 1:4. So 1 cup of liquid = 1/4 cup of chia seeds. We’re halving these amounts for this recipe because 1 cup is more pudding than I need!

All you need to do is mix your chia seeds with your liquid (and whatever else you’re adding in), seal the container you’re storing it in and leave it in the fridge overnight! Voila – you’re a pro at making chia seed pudding!
