So I’ve been holding out on you folks. I get so wrapped up in the decadence and my love of everything rich that I forget to sometimes share my healthier creations. Most recently, my love of this Triple Berry Chia Pudding or if I’m being more accurate, all chia pudding! I’ve seen so many recipes for pudding made with chia seeds that I felt it was high time I wrote about this healthy treat that tastes like dessert. Dessert you can eat for breakfast, guilt-free! Now that’s my kind of recipe.

Triple Berry Chia Pudding - FoodBabbles.com #chia #pudding #healthyChia seeds are very trendy these days and with good reason. Chia seeds are high in dietary fiber, omega-3 and protein! Now that’s what I call a super-food. Here I combined all that nutrition with a triple berry dose of antioxidants from raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. Whirl all those berries together and add some chia seeds. Another fabulous thing about chia seeds is that when they sit combined with a liquid for a bit, they plump up and thicken to a pudding-like consistency but still with that little nutty crunch. Viola! Chia pudding!

But my favorite thing about chia pudding? My girls love it! And I feel really good about serving it to them. I love that the flavor possibilities are endless also. Change the liquid to almond milk or fresh squeezed juice, change the fruit or add spices. This is a healthy desert you’ll never grow tired of and can always feel good about.

I’ve been reading about chia seeds, but haven’t tried them yet. Maybe I’ll pick up some berries and try your triple berry chia pudding. Sounds pretty yummy.

I’ve done the chia seed and coconut milk thing, and the chia seed and almond milk thing, but never with blended berries! Such a great idea. Pudding for breakfast, yay!

I love chia seeds, they work like magic 🙂 I’ve used them mixed with water as an egg replacer in recipes too and you can’t tell the difference! Love the pics of the girls!

I’ve heard about “chia eggs” but never tried it. I’ve been meaning to. Thanks for jogging my memory!
