OVERNIGHT CHIA | Chia seed breakfast pudding

chia seed pudding breakfast

Ahhh, a long weekend. Thank you, Labor Day! To kick my day off the right way, I figured a tasty breakfast was in order!

The boyfriend has been on a chia seed kick this last month. I swear, he’s trying to put chia into anything and everything! He gets on these health kicks all the time (a few months ago it was coconut oil), but I try and support them as long as they are tasty :)

When he stumbled upon chia pudding he immediately sent me the idea to make since it would be “great for the blog” (aka great for his tummy).

So here we have it, chh-chh-chh-chia seed breakfast pudding!

Just like the overnight oats I made a few weeks ago, this recipe is super simple and the fridge does all the work overnight!

chia seed breakfast


– 1 and 1/4 cups almond or coconut milk
– 1/4 cup black chia seeds
– 2 tablespoons of maple syrup (or honey)
– Fruit and/or nut toppings (for the morning of)

Step 1: Mix the chia seeds, milk, and maple syrup together and pop it in the fridge overnight.

Step 2: The next morning, top the pudding with whatever toppings you wish (mango, bananas, raspberries, nuts…. chocolate)

Step 3: Grab a spoon and dive in!

If you don’t know about all the benefits of chia seeds (like me until last month) here are a few nuggets of information to whip out at your next dinner party!

(Note: if you actually have to whip out these facts out at your next dinner party you may want to rethink the guests you invited over)

chia seed health benefits

Chia seeds:

– Are filled with protein and fiber (win, win)
– Increase exercise performance
– Are loaded with Omega-3 Fatty Acids
– Are filled in calcium
– Are packed with antioxidants (and since I’m getting sick, this is very important at the moment for me!)

What are your thoughts on chia seeds? Do you put them in anything specific? Clearly for the rest of the month (until the boyfriend get’s on his next health kick) I’ll need some more recipes!

    Love Chia seeds! I’ve also tossed them in oatmeal, shakes, smoothies, etc. I’ve been hesitant to try the pudding version because of the texture but you’ve convinced me with your dinner party tidbits lol I’m leaning towards the chocolate topping though haha

      I will have to trow some in my smoothies! I can’t believe I didn’t think of that one :) And yes, I’m putting chocolate in the pudding next time haha

    I didn’t like my first experience with chia seeds. Maybe I should give it another shot with this simple recipe!

      They can be a bit odd. Maybe try something a bit easier, like mixing them into oatmeal or yogurt! This chia pudding may be a bit of an overload if you didn’t have a good first experience haha
