Alright, I’m going to keep this short and sweet because I have very exciting news… We’re moving into a house! We’re still renting but I’m super excited to have more space and a yard, and a gas stove(!) and a porch and a park nearby and just, everything. I’m excited for everything! Also, we’re moving in with Christian and Cassandra (my brother and his girlfriend), which is going to be awesome. We’re going to cook so much delicious food together and throw frisbees and grill out and play Catan. It’s gonna be great. If you can’t tell, I’m pumped.
On to the important stuff, this chia pudding is incredible. It’s super peanut buttery with just the right amount of fruitiness from the blueberries. It’s like a PB&J, except really good for you, think 14 grams of fiber, 50% of your daily calcium, tons of omega 3’s, only 300 calories. This is perhaps the healthiest dessert you can get.
There are also tons of substitutions you could make. I used coconut milk but you could use any milk you want, dairy milk, almond milk, cashew milk, etc. You could also sub the blueberries for any other berry, strawberries or raspberries would be delicious. Any fruit you might find in a jelly on a PB&J would work.
Also, make sure you use natural peanut butter here, the only ingredient should be peanuts. Processed peanut butters have tons of sugar in them, so if you use Jif or something, just leave out the maple syrup.
Okay here’s the video!
A delicious, filling and healthy breakfast, snack or dessert, this chia pudding will not disappoint!
- 2 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (or your milk of choice)
- 1/3 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
- 1 Tbsp natural peanut butter*
- 2 tsp maple syrup
- 1. Mix the chia seeds and coconut milk in a small bowl and let sit 10-15 minutes until the chia seeds absorb all the liquid.
- 2. If the blueberries are frozen, warm them up in the microwave for 30 seconds or so. If they are fresh, add a splash of water and mash them up a bit in a bowl.
- 3. Mix the peanut butter and maple syrup into the chia pudding, pour the blueberries over the top and enjoy!
*If you use a processed peanut butter, it will already have a lot of sugar so leave out the maple syrup.
