It’s that time of year where I avoid “cooking” at all costs. The weather here in NYC has been in the 80’s and humid, so the last thing that’s on my mind is the warmth of a hot oven. These days, breakfasts have been refreshing and quick – smoothies, yogurt, granola, and the like. This chia pudding requires almost no effort & is light enough for even the hottest of days. Top with your favorite fruit, a bit of natural sweetener & even some chopped nuts or seeds. It fills you up without weighing you down (and also happens to be pretty damn tasty.) Happy Summer!

Vanilla Chia Pudding with Chestnut Honey & Berries

Serves 2 - 4

ingredients


  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons chestnut honey or maple syrup (& more for topping)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 6 oz. strawberries (or mixed berries)
instructions


  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine chia seeds, almond milk, vanilla, salt & sweetener of choice. Stir together, then add to fridge for 2 hours or up to overnight.
  2. Once the chia seeds have congealed to your desired texture, stir well & serve immediately. Top with berries and more honey or maple syrup. Divide evenly among bowls & enjoy!

    It’s definitely been too hot to turn the oven on in these parts! This looks like such a healthy and refreshing breakfast.

    I’ve been dying to try a chia pudding for breakfast, and this looks like the perfect recipe… and I love a breakfast that can be totally prepped the night before!

    I have never been too interested in chia pudding because I don’t really like puddings that aren’t smooth (ie. tapioca), but this chia pudding is so beautiful I’m having second thoughts! Thanks for the great recipe.
