Transform Breakfast Time with Our Easy, Nutritious Chia Pudding Recipe

After an indulgent festive period, enhancing their health and wellbeing is a priority for many people throughout January and beyond. Swapping sugary cereals and rich pastries for an all-round better breakfast is a great move when you’re trying to develop a healthier lifestyle.

Thanks to our versatile chia pudding recipe, your first meal of the day can taste good and do your body good too, even if you’re particularly short of time. Why not enjoy this brilliant breakfast option alongside a reinvigorating cup of freshly brewed coffee? You can also serve chia pudding as a delicious alternative to conventional, calorie-laden desserts.

Chia truly deserves to be known as a superfood. The seeds are tiny but incredibly powerful: they’re a fantastic source of cell-protecting antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids (important for heart health) and vital minerals such as calcium. What’s more, they’re high in fibre, so a satisfying bowl of chia pudding in the morning will help you to keep going till lunchtime.

Chia seeds make wonderful additions to almost everyone’s diet, though please be aware that they shouldn’t be given to small children.

Like the yogurt and milk it’s mixed with, chia has a mild flavour that works well with a wide range of toppings. By sprinkling pumpkin seeds over your superfood-based breakfast and adding manuka honey, you’re further boosting its antioxidant power.

You’re free to choose whichever kind of yogurt and milk you prefer when following this healthy breakfast recipe. You don’t need to use dairy products if you don’t want to – nut and soya-based versions are perfect too.

Our chia pudding takes just minutes to prepare in a mixing bowl (no cooking required!). The mixture can then simply be left to chill overnight, helping you to save precious time in the morning.

Step by Step
  • Add the yogurt, milk, chia seeds and vanilla extract to a mixing bowl. Stir well until the ingredients are throroughly combined, resulting in a substancial chia pudding mixture.
  • Cover and chill for 12 hours in your refrigerator to give the seeds plenty of time to soak.Remove the pudding from your refrigerator. If it’s particularly thick, stir in more milk, little by little, until it develops a creamy consistency.
  • Divide the pudding equally between four bowls or glasses. The large Bodum® Canteen double wall glasses are ideal – they’ll help you to keep the pudding at the perfect temperature for longer than ordinary glasses.
    Top tip: If you’re serving the pudding as a dessert at a dinner party, you may find that piping it into the glasses gives it a more sophisticated appearance than using a spoon to serve it out.
  • Sprinkle the nuts, seeds and berries onto each portion. Drizzle over a little manuka honey. For the perfect finishing touch, garnish with the mint leaves.
  • Refrigerate any leftover pudding and enjoy within 4-5 days.

More Tasty Topping Ideas

The beauty of this healthy chia pudding recipe is its adaptability, so feel free to experiment with different toppings and give the dish your own unique culinary twist.

Why not try adding almond flakes, chopped banana, coconut flakes, juicy jumbo raisins, sliced kiwi fruit or a dash of pure maple syrup? For a little treat, how about stirring in some dark chocolate chips?

Varying the toppings is a particularly good idea if you can envisage yourself making chia pudding regularly and want to ensure that it’s a dish you really look forward to every time. There are so many different ways to serve and enjoy it, you’ll never get bored!
