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.

      Ashley, coconut milk would be fantastic! Let me know how you like it. ~Erin

    Strawberries are definitely a delicious alternative to this healthy treat. You are correct in the fact that strawberries will also let out more juice (macerate) any time they are sliced and, even more so when they are combined with sugar (or in this case, honey). This would explain why you had a juicy, more liquid version of the pudding. Making a drinkable version sounds excellent – hope you enjoy again soon! ~Erin

  13. […] Delightful Made inspired me to whip up her delicious Blueberry Almond Chia Pudding.  I didn’t have any blueberries on hand, I substituted them with the strawberries that were glaring at me in my refrigerator.  It’s a two-part process as most of the ingredients get refrigerated overnight.  I have to admit I thought I was going to dive into a pudding like texture but it was a little more drinkable than spoonful.  [was it because of the strawberries?]  It was tasty but a little heavy on the Chia Seeds, I would prefer 1 tbsp. to the 2 tbsp. she suggested.  I definitely would try this again with less Chia Seeds and throw a straw in my glass next time to enjoy it as a yummy drink and end with spooning up the fruit.  Thanks for sharing this healthy pudding to start my morning Erin!
