Chia Seed Health Benefits
Chia seeds are gluten and grain free but one tablespoon of the little seeds has more calcium than a glass of milk. More Omega 3 than Salmon and more antioxidants than blueberries! They give you energy and are also great for weight loss as they absorb about 12 times their size in liquid. So will expand and keep you full as well as being nutritious. They also keep your blood sugar levels at a sensible level. They are one of the most versatile superfoods.
I wanted to start incorporating these little power seeds into my diet and now have a pudding for breakfast! Who would have thought the phrase breakfast pudding was healthy?! The great thing about this is that it is very filling and will keep you full. Just make sure you drink plenty of water as they are high in fibre and absorb a lot of water.
Chocolate Chia Pudding Tips
- Add the chia seeds gradually and stir well to ensure that the chia seeds do not clump together.
- If the pudding is too thick for you, add more coconut milk (or even almond milk) until you reach the pudding consistency you want.
- Serve with a scattering of coconut and fresh raspberries. Cacao nibs would make a crunchy addition too.
The best thing about chia puddings is that you throw the ingredients in a jar, shake them to mix, leave in the fridge overnight and voila! An easy breakfast or tasty pudding on the go.

Are you sure it's only 1/2 a cup of milk? My mixture was very stiff, and that was before it went into the fridge! Anyway, I added another 1/2 cup of coconut milk and the resultant consistency was just right the following morning. Very filling and very nice, thank you.
It may be the different in milk consistency between brands. Glad you enjoyed this recipe anyway!
I'm so excited to try this for breakfast tomorrow - I've been finding breakfast difficult when I can't fall back on toast and cereal. Do you have a chia pudding type breakfast every morning?
Delighted you love it too...a perfect breakfast with no cooking too! I have them most mornings during the week when I do not have time to cook before dashing out the door to work. My favourite is the chocolate one though! Tried it with cinnamon the other day..very nice!
It was delicious. I swapped the raspberries for strawberries and forgot the coconut - I think I'll put that in tomorrow. My husband even liked it - so I think we have a winner for breakfast when we don't have time. Thanks for the idea and recipe!
Fab! It's a great recipe to play around with!
This looks amazing! I just made some and put it in my fridge, can't wait till morning!
Hope you enjoy it!
I made it and it was delicious!!!
Huzzah! So glad you liked it!
