Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds are back!  I talk about these a lot and if you haven’t bought them, go buy some this weekend.  Just do it.

It takes only 10 seconds to add to a meal and makes the meal 10 times more nutritious.Chia Seed Pudding side above | www.thefreshfind.com

This Chia seed pudding recipe is simple, healthy and darn delicious.  There is no reason you shouldn’t try it out.

I love the texture of the chia gel and pudding.  Imagine tapioca pudding but 100 times healthier for you.

Sold yet?  If not, check out my Superfood Spotlight on Chia seeds.  It’s lengthy, but it provides some great information.  They are the ultimate powerhouses.

There is something about that ooey, gooey texture with the seedy crunch.  You know the seeds you get to bite when you eat raspberries?  I oddly enjoy those seeds, call me weird, but it’s part of why I love that fruit.

These Chia seeds have that same crunch! (hey, it’s the little things in life, right?)

I usually eat some before my workouts in the morning, after my workout for breakfast, as a snack through the day, and usually for a sweet bite before bed.  Chia overload?  Maybe… but I’m still alive.Chia Seed Pudding side | www.thefreshfind.com Chia Seed Pudding side above | www.thefreshfind.com

I have been making Chia pudding, oats, gel, yogurt and I am always disappointed at how UGLY they are to the normal person.  (I think they look like super cool, but I’m not everyone)

I tried to make these guys look pretty. I learned about ‘food styling’ during the BlogHer conference and have made it a goal to change up my pictures.  I hope you guys enjoy!

It seems to work so far, because my mom, who isn’t a huge fan of Chia seeds, said “Oh!  That looks yummy!”

Yay!  We’re off to a good start.  What do you think?

I add these fresh strawberries from the market, aren’t these the prettiest strawberries?

I swear by Driscoll’s berries.  I rarely buy any other brand because Driscoll’s strawberries, blueberries, blackberries are so sweet and crispy every. darn. time.  Mmmm! I don’t think I have ever been disappointed.

Anyway… give these Chia babies a shot! You can also put them in banana bread!

    Do you grind the chia seeds like flax seeds or do you just rely on chewing them? I do love flax seeds so I’ll try these!

      Hi Rachel, great question! Chia seeds are actually different from flaxseed in that you can still absorb all the nutritional benefits without having to grind them. For flax, you have to grind it up in order for your body to retain the nutritional benefits, but with Chia, you can eat them in any form! Thank you for reading!

        Wow – I made it with chocolate coconut milk and mmmmm! I love the sort of crunchy-tapioca texture. Next time I’m adding chai spices!

          Oh yum!! I will have to try coconut milk. Did you use the same ratio? I know, I love the texture! Thanks for reading, Rachel!

    I’ve been meaning to make this for a while and just made it for the first time yesterday! I didn’t have almond milk on hand so I used a half organic fat free milk and half fat free greek yogurt – for a little more protein and some probiotics :). I added a bit of orange zest too – so good!! I want to make this for breakfast everyday! I had it with some fresh strawberries and a little of my Kashi go lean crunch on top. Very tasty! Will be making this again :)

      Hi Megan! Thank you so much for reading and your comment!! :) I love the yogurt/half-half idea. I put them in my yogurt too and it’s just as good. Good idea with the orange zest, strawberries and Kashi… you’re so gourmet! And yes… chia + probiotic yogurt is the ultimate equation for helping cleanse the intestines, I love it!
