  1. Scoop the chia seeds into a cup and pour almond milk

  1. Mix in 1 TBSP cinnamon, 1/2 TBSP nutmeg, and as much shredded coconut as you want.
  2. Stir again, ensuring everything is mixed well
  3. Before eating, top with raspberries and almond butter

  2. Stir well!

Make your own combination!

Experiment with the following “formulas”:

Health benefits:

Chia seeds are an excellent source of fiber! They’re pretty low in calories, but adding a little bit to your breakfast can help keep you full for longer, especially useful if you’re working towards being in a calorie deficit without always feeling so hungry!

But sometimes the texture is unappealing; to be honest, the first time I had chia seed pudding, I did not like it at all but it’s grown on me, especially when you add in other ingredients. By itself, chia seed pudding tastes like almost nothing, but in a way that’s good becuase you get to start with a blank slate and flavor it any way you want!

Thanks for reading, and I’ll chia later!

Okay, I get it, I get it, I’m leaving now.
