I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but I am definitely a creature of habit.  I often tend to get in a rut where I make the same four breakfasts for myself.  I do the same exact thing at the gym, for the same amount of time, every time I go.  I’ve wondered why I do these things – I think its because I find comfort in the known.  On the down side – its VERY boring!!  I quickly get sick of the same workout and the same thing for breakfast, and then get to the point where I choose not to work out, or choose a drive-thru breakfast because I’m tired of what I have at home.

I’m here to tell you that this Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding is the PERFECT breakfast!  It’s a make-ahead breakfast, which means it’s ready to go when you are in the morning.  It literally takes about 2 minutes to put together the night before you go to bed, and its waiting in the fridge when you’re ready to eat.  It’s very healthy as well.  Chia seeds are a super food, loaded with Omega-3′s, fiber, antioxidants and many other good-for-you benefits.  You’re also getting plenty of protein and calcium from the milk and almonds, which will also help you feel fuller longer.

I personally love the fact that this breakfast tastes fantastic!!  It has just a bit of sweetness from the honey and almonds, and the chia seeds combined with the blueberries and almonds give this pudding a great texture and crunch.

If you haven’t jumped on the chia seed bandwagon yet, I would highly recommend doing so.  I had to do a bit of looking around, but I eventually found chia seeds in the health food section at the super market.

This Blueberry Almond Chia Seed Pudding is not only a quick make-ahead breakfast, its uber healthy and super delicious!
Ingredients
  • 1 c. almond milk (or any other preferred milk)
  • ½ c. fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 2 tsp. honey (or any other preferred sweetener)
  • 8-10 raw almonds, roughly chopped
Instructions
  1. Using a 1-pint mason jar, or any other resealable container, add the milk, blueberries, chia seeds and honey. Stir ingredients to incorporate. Place lid on container, and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.
  2. Just before eating, chop almonds and add to the pudding.
  3. Refrigerate any leftovers.

This not only makes a great breakfast, I love it as a mid-day snack.  I often make a double batch in a larger mason jar, and have half for breakfast and save the other half for a snack later in the day.
