Healthy Breakfast! Cozy Vanilla Chia Seed Almond Pudding Recipe

October 31, 2019

Chia seed pudding makes for an excellent breakfast or snack.

Lately, I’ve been bringing this delicious and nutrient packed chia seed pudding along with me to have handy during my workday at Parsley Health. It fills me up and can really help if a sweet craving hits!

Often referred to as a superfood, chia literally means ‘strength’ in the Mayan language.  They were used as a staple of the Mayan, Aztec and Inca diets, often utilized by runners and warriors for sustenance.

This energy producing food, is also known to aid in weight loss, promote digestive health and help to create more stable blood sugar levels. Additionally, chia seeds are loaded with fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, various micronutrients as well as protein. These little guys pack a lot of power!

You can double or triple this recipe and prep a big batch to have during the week – it will last in the fridge for 4-5 days. Feel free to play around with the ingredients too, there are so many delicious creations you can make!
