Recipe Challenge: Yogurt-Chia Seed Pudding with Berries

This week, our awesome nutrition intern Jemimah is sharing one of her breakfast staples, a great alternative to overnight oats.

This week I’m sharing a yogurt-chia pudding I recently tried and fell in love with! If you commute to work like I do, weekday mornings can feel pretty hectic. The great thing about this recipe is that it’s an easy grab ‘n go breakfast. The yogurt-chia-almond milk combination is also high in protein and fiber, which keeps you fuller for longer. It also serves as a great base for any breakfast; so even if this recipe calls for berries, you can easily substitute it for half of a banana.  Set aside 10 minutes of today, so you can conquer your morning tomorrow

Ingredients (1 serving):

  • ¼ cup, plain, non-fat yogurt
  • ½ cup unsweetened vanilla (or plain) almond milk
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ cup blueberries

Instructions:

  1. In a small tupperware, combine yogurt, almond milk and chia seeds. Mix well. Top with blueberries and store in the fridge overnight, or for at least 8 hours.
  2. Mix well right before eating.

Notes:

  • Other suggestions that add variety: cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spice, vanilla extract, etc. Don’t be afraid to play with a variety of flavors and combinations!
