Blueberry Chia Pudding

Description

This blueberry chia pudding is the perfect easy breakfast. It's light but filling, can be topped with your favorites, and can be made ahead. Best of all, it's naturally vegan and gluten free.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 3 medjool dates, halved, pitted, and soaked in warm water for 10 minutes
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup nondairy milk (oat, almond, cashew, etc)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 tablespoons chia seeds
  • Optional: 1-2 teaspoons açai powder

Instructions

  1. Pit and halve the dates and soak them in room temperature water for 10-15 minutes. Add all ingredients to the blender (except the chia seeds), and blend on high speed until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Pour blueberry mixture into a bowl and whisk in chia seeds. Let sit for 5 minutes and whisk again.

  3. Cover and store in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours at a minimum, or overnight. If you can, give the pudding a good stir two to three times while it is in the refrigerator to prevent the chia seeds from clumping together.

Notes

Storage: This chia pudding will last for up to a week in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

For extra creamy chia pudding (and a boost of protein & tanginess), add up to ½ cup of nondairy vanilla yogurt.

If you don't like the texture of whole chia seeds, you can add the pudding to a blender and blend it to make it smoother.

Stir once or twice while the mixture sets: To prevent chia seed clumps from forming, give the mixture a few stirs while it's thickening up. This will also ensure that the chia seeds don't all sink to the bottom.

Store in individual tupperware containers for on-the-go: Once the chia pudding is set, we like to transfer the mixture to small glass jars with lids for storage, so we can easily grab them from the fridge for a single serving snack.
