Chia Pudding Recipe

Dr. Hayman’s favorite breakfast meal

Simplicity is the key when you have a two-and-a-half year old, a husband, and a puppy at home.  One of my favorite, simple breakfast meals is chia seed pudding.  It is quite easy and really isn’t even a recipe, it’s more like a cereal.  Chia seeds are wonderful little things that are packed with Omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and fiber all rolled into one.  This morning pudding can be enjoyed any time of the day, but breakfast is usually when we have it.

Chia Pudding – 1 serving

  • 3 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 2/3 cup of almond or coconut milk
  • 1 tsp of Grade B Maple Syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • Handful of blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries
  • Optional:  goji berries, pumpkin seeds, raisins, etc…

Mix the milk, chia seeds, syrup, and salt in a bowl and let it set in the refrigerator for 45 minutes (can be made the night before).  While the milk is absorbing into the chia seeds, stir twice to break apart the clumps that may occur.  You may want to add more or less milk depending on the consistency you desire.  After 45 minutes, stir and add your berries.  Enjoy!
