Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding with Fresh Berries

Every weekday morning I usually have either plain Greek yogurt with granola and berries or vanilla yogurt with granola and berries. While these quick breakfast options are always enjoyable, there comes a time when enough is enough and you need to mix it up! After making (and loving) my first chia seed pudding, I was excited to try out new flavors and make more! Nev-dawg has been away these past few days which meant that my bed had room for my biff Alex aka Alejandra #slumberparty. We went out and got some sushi with all the spicy mayo (or maybe spicy mayo with a side of sushi, that still remains unclear) then decided to come home and make some pudding. We decided that we would just make vanilla to keep it simple and not too sweet  since we would be enjoying it for breakfast. The pudding came out really well and tasted like a cross between plain yogurt and vanilla yogurt (but in pudding form). While this was delicious, we couldn’t help but compare it to my Chocolate Nutella Chia Seed Pudding which unfortunately made the vanilla a little disappointing. I think next time I’d either either add some honey when I add the berries to give it some extra sweetness while preserving the crisp plain yogurt taste, or I would use vanilla Greek yogurt in place of the plain to make it more obviously vanilla in flavor. Either way, we had an awesome breakfast and I think this recipe has a lot of potential and countless ways for you to make it your own! 


Servings: 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes (inactive 8 hours)

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1 cup 0% fat plain Greek yogurt (I use Fage)
  • 3 tbsp low fat vanilla yogurt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

Place all ingredients in medium bowl. IMG_2201 Whisk until ingredients are well combined. IMG_2202
Cover the bowl tightly with saran-a-wrap and refrigerate overnight. The next morning it will have thickened and developed a pudding-like consistency. Serve pudding and top with fresh blackberries and raspberries (or whatever toppings you like!). Enjoy! Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

The berries add that anti oxidants and flavor to it, making it so healthy. Just love it. Thanks for sharing the nutritional information. Quite inspired by fresh recipes like this.

      Thank you so much for the kind words and for visiting my blog. I’m new to the blogging world (been live for under a month) so this positive feedback is fantastic. I try to cook using fresh ingredients and try to create delicious recipes that are healthy, low-calorie, low-sugar, and high protein. Of course, some of my recipes will be treats and won’t be as healthy as the rest :-D. I’m loving your blog and your commitment to informing people about nutrition and the benefits of fresh produce. I’m looking forward to reading more and getting to know you better.

      Best,
      Amanda

      1. Hi Amanda,

        Blogging is so much fun. Its been two and a half months and this takes 5-6 hours of time. Just love reading new things and learning more everyday. That is so good to hear how you try using fresh ingredients all the time. This is one thing I have learnt, fresh always have that extra flavor as compared to processed. It also fills you up more. Thanks for such warm words about my blog, will be posting some more very soon. I am going to follow you, to see some more of your recipes. Also if you may like you can stay tuned with us, will be posting some more very soon.

        Thanks,

        Nakul
