Build Your Own Chia Pudding

This build your own series is very versatile as it allows you to add whatever flavours you want to an easy base recipe. Chia pudding is also something that can be eaten for breakfast or as an afternoon snack.

They are also great for people who are busy because you can prep a few for the week, leave them in the fridge and grab them when you need them.

Here is how it works: 

Base ingredients:

1 cup of plant-based milk

1/4 cup chia seeds


Add ingredients to a jar and let sit for 3-5 hours in the fridge or leave overnight. 

To be honest, this won't be the tastiest treat on its own, so I suggest adding some more flavours. 

Other ingredients to choose from include:

  • Cacao nibs, dairy-free chocolate chips or cocoa powder

  • Vanilla 

  • Oats

  • Cinnamon

  • Nutmeg

  • Coconut flakes

  • Nut/seed butter

  • Fresh fruit for toppings

  • Nuts and seeds

  • Peppermint extract

  • Protein powder
