On Saturday mornings, sometimes you want to spend a long time cutting fruits, baking something good to put them on, maybe even make a fancy sauce to top it all of. Sometimes, you are just plain hungry and want something good fast.
For this kind of mornings, chia seed pudding is perfect. Just put all the ingredients in a bowl, mix, go take your shower (or lounge around in your PJ’s) and eat!
Then again, you have the option of being extra healthy and mix it up with some fruits (don’t use frozen, it will freeze things up!) and nuts. You can also make yourself a big bowl of chocolate pudding (no one needs to know that it is packed with nutrients, omegas and healthy goodness).
Oh yeah! It’s the week-end, right?
Here is what you need per bowl:
- 2 tbs of chia seeds
- 2 tbs unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1-2 tsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- 1 tbs hemp seeds
- 1 – 1.5 cups of almond milk
- 1 tsp chocolate chips (if you feel extra excited for the week-end)
Here is what you need to do:
- Place all the ingredients in a bowl.
- Mix to incorporate the cocoa powder and separate the chia seeds.
- Wait 15 minutes.
This is a seriously decadent breakfast that has equally serious benefits! I won’t go into a thousands details about chia seeds as you can easily find this online, but lets just say that this pudding resets your digestive system, fills you up with energy, gives you a shot of protein and omegas, and is packed with yummy flavours!
Let me know what are your favourite toppings for chia pudding and enjoy the week-end!

Will do 🙂
I had it for dessert actually today. I put some cinnamon and cardamon in it too . I liked it, but as strange as it sounds to me – it’s more of a breakfast than dessert!! I will def do it again, and have some sliced bananas in it!!
It really works well for a breakfast! I’m glad you liked it and made your own version of it!
Thanx to you I now have chia pudding for afternoon snack at the office. My favorite so far is without the choc but a little vanilla and a big help of fresh blueberries!!
You’re so good; I can’t resist anything with chocolate 🙂
Great recipes, great premise – thanks lighthearted!
Thank you, and I’m glad you like it! 🙂
