This Chia Pudding with Berries and Blended Oats is pure heaven! Vegan, gluten-free & healthy.
Do you like chia seeds and chia pudding?
I’ve only recently embarked on the chia seeds train, as I was always skeptic about it. I mean, there is a warning on the packaging that you should not consume more than 15 grams of seeds per day. That can’t be good right? I mean, how can you make a pudding with only 15 grams of seeds?
Enter the spectacular chia seed 🙂 Once you feed it liquid, it will plump up, enlarge and completely transform. And yes, I was a non-believer, but now I make chia pudding as well 🙂
The taste of the seeds per se is nothing remarkable, but once you pair it with stuff like berries, it makes a perfectly enjoyable breakfast. The weirdest thing is the pudding texture that kind of reminds of … frog eggs, floating at the side of a pond. Is this weird? Am I the only one??
Weird looks and texture aside, this Chia Pudding with Berries is not only pretty, but healthy as well, and you can enjoy it any day of the year 😉
As I was making this recipe and trying out the chia seeds for the first time EVER, I wanted to make sure I would not be without breakfast in case the experiment turned out to be a failure. So I also made overnight oats, just in case. Then, in the morning as I was assembling the breakfast I tasted the chia pudding and realized, my worries were for nothing.
But when Mitja said he’d be eating it as well, suddenly the pudding portion was just not enough for 2 people. Luckily, I had the overnight oats on standby, decided to combine the two and add the berry sauce, and, oh why not, some pistachio cream as well. And boy, was this a great weekend breakfast for two 🙂
