What are the ingredients used in Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding?
Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding is made with 5 ingredients.
These ingredients are:
Chia Seeds: Organic seeds are the BEST.
Milk: Choose any milk.
Sweetener: Honey, maple syrup, or any other natural sweetener of your choice.
Ground cinnamon: use organic like Ceylon.
Blueberries: frozen or fresh. I like to use frozen.
Following are some awesome tips and variations to make blueberry chia seed pudding:
I have used frozen blueberries for this recipe because they give a nice thick texture. However, you can surely use fresh ones.
If you don’t have enough blueberries, then you can also add other berries like strawberry or raspberry.
This recipe yields 2 jar sized servings. But you can easily double or triple this recipe as per your need.
If you like the denser and thick smoothie-like texture of your pudding, then you can also blend chia seeds with the blueberries.
Addition of cinnamon to the blueberry based dishes takes them to the next level. So it is highly recommended.
You can adjust the texture to your pudding according to your taste preference. If you think your pudding is too thick and dense then you can add 2-3 tablespoons of chilled milk (or as needed) and mix well. If by any chance your pudding is too runny, then add 1-2 teaspoon of chia seeds to the pudding and chill for 30 minutes.
Chia seeds pudding stays fresh for up to 2-3 days when stored in sealed jars in the refrigerator.
I personally like to use honey because it is higher in antioxidants, lower in fructose-content, is less processed, and has many other health benefits. Feel free to choose any other sweetener.
You can also add 1-2 tablespoons of Greek yogurt or dairy-free yogurt to this pudding recipe.
To make it more fuller, you can also use some granola or muesli toppings.
Make sure to always add the topping right before serving.
Add banans to make it banana bluberry chia pudding.
For a more aromatic flavour, you can also add some cardamom powder to this pudding.
