Superfood Triple Berry Chia Pudding

I LOVE chia pudding! And what can be easier than throwing a few chia seeds into a mason jar with some fresh fruit and almond milk and giving it a good shake! Side note: please excuse the manicure.

If you’ve never tried chia pudding, I highly recommend picking up some chia seeds and Blue Diamond Almond Breeze almond milk and give it a try. Chia is a super food; an excellent
source of omega fatty acids, has more antioxidants than blueberries and it’s full of minerals, calcium, protein, vitamins and fiber. Plus it is low in calories and is incredibly satiating.

Some of you may have tried my Mango Coconut Chia Pudding[1] which is always a favorite of mine, but I wanted to try something with all the berries I bought this week and used fresh blueberries, raspberries and blackberries… delicious!

All I do is combine the chia seeds with milk (my favorite milk to use when making chia pudding is Almond Breeze Unsweetened Almond-Coconut Milk[2]) then add fruit and a little liquid stevia or whatever sweetener you like, then shake it all up, let it sit 15 minutes and give it another good shake and keep it in the refrigerator overnight. Karina, my oldest loves this! Madison, my youngest wanted to help me style the shot, perhaps I have an assistant in training…

Isn’t she such a ham : )

This is so healthy you can even eat this for breakfast, which is what I did this morning. Did I mention this fits into so many dietary restrictions; gluten-free, dairy-free, low sodium, low sugar, low calorie, vegetarian, vegan… enjoy!! By the way the lovely spoon is by For Such A Time Designs[3].

Chia Chocolate Pudding – Sort of a Pet Project

If you’re my age, you can’t hear the word “chia” without
thinking of the famous 1980’s commercial, and its “cha cha cha chia” jingle. That
did make it a little tougher taking this seed seriously as a legitimate recipe
ingredient, but as long as you manage expectations, it proved its worth beyond
a gardening option for lazy people.

If you’re looking for a rich and decadent chocolate pudding
then keep moving. As nutritious as this “superfood” is supposed to be, you
can’t expect the same results substituting bird seeds for eggs, butter, and cream. That said, if you’re craving something sweet, relatively chocolately,
and comparatively healthful, then chia seeds may be a good option.

Chia seeds are all the rage right now, and are usually seen
in breakfast pudding form. In fact, I learned about them after seeing this on my friend Elizabeth’s blog, Saffron Lane. I’ve never been a big breakfast pudding guy,
so I decide to do a dessert for my first attempt. Plus, I needed an excuse to use chocolate covered hemp seeds.

They’re incredible easy to work with, and I look forward to
doing more experiments. If you have any tips or tricks I should know about,
please feel free to pop off. And if you’ve never tried using chia seeds before
(the pet plant doesn’t count), I hope you give this a try soon. Enjoy!

Ingredients for 2 servings:
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon instant coffee
1/4 tsp vanilla
a few grains of salt
1 cup milk
chocolate covered hemp seeds, optional

Chia Watermelon Fresca

If you’ve ever had a Mama Chia beverage and enjoyed it, then I think you will love this drink! The chia seeds in this refreshing watermelon beverage add a healthy dose of powerful antioxidants, omega-3s, dietary fibers, as well as complete protein, calcium and magnesium.

So many people are sharing pumpkin recipes this week, but it’s in the 80’s here in New York, and I’m still in denial that summer is coming to an end. I’ve been making this beverage all summer, and thought I would share it with you today – enjoy!

  • 1 1/2 cups seedless watermelon cubes
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

  • ice


In the blender combine the watermelon and water and puree until smooth. Stir in chia seeds and let them sit for about 5 minutes. Stir again, and let sit for as long as you like. The more it sits, the more gel-like the seeds become. Pour into a glass over ice and garnish with lime and sprig of mint.
