Looking for a healthy snack or fruity dessert? Make this creamy blueberry chia seed pudding; it’s heart healthy and packed with fiber!
Hi friends! Long time no chat. It’s been a whirlwind of a couple of days since getting home from Mexico. If you saw any of my social media posts, you know that I have a broken foot and have finally just recovered from the Mexican Flu (it’s what we’re calling it). Be on the look out for a post or two later this week on an update on how I’m doing!
For now- we need to goo and gaa over this AMAZING CHIA SEED PUDDING.
Chia seed pudding is definitely my new favorite dessert. I like it because I can also eat it as a snack and not feel bad 🙂 We posted FFF’s first chia seed pudding recipe a few weeks ago and I just can’t believe I waited so long to share the goodness. Lin has been raving about the fact that chia pudding is her go to dessert since I can remember and I JUST TRIED IT a few months ago. I know, I know…late to the game.
This recipe is in partnership with my favorite spice brand – Simply Organic. Dat vanilla, though. This recipe is made with just a few simple ingredients. Let’s take a look:
Smashing the blueberries is definitely key! 1. you want to make sure you get all that delicious blueberry flavor and 2. it turns your chia pudding a slight blue/purple color and that’s just fun! The lemon juice and vanilla extract also help bring out the blueberry flavor, so don’t skimp on either of those!
Make sure you let the chia seeds soak for a good 6 hours. You’ll be surprised as to how much they do expand and how think your pudding will be!
