Ingredients

Chia pudding

Toppings

    unsweetened soy yogurt
  • 3 Tbsp (23 g)
  • ¼ cup (38 g)

Directions

  1. Mix together the chia pudding ingredients in a bowl or cup. Let it sit for 8 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, heat the frozen fruit at 600W for 1 - 2 minutes, or until fully thawed. Alternatively, thaw on the stove. Let it cool, then store away in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to use.

So yummy!

SO delicious! I’m normally not a chia pudding person as I don’t usually like the texture, but the flavor on this recipe is so great! I also had some of the PUL Chia Jam from earlier in the week , so I used that instead of berries - - it was great together but I think next time I’ll do it exactly according to the recipe.

PUL Team - Feb. 6, 2024, 8:12 a.m.

Ooo love the idea of adding chia jam, Elyse! We're so happy that the chia pudding was enjoyed 😊

So yummy! I’ve been making chai pudding for a while but it’s never come out as tasty as this. The cinnamon makes it taste really ‘cozy’ perfect for the autumn 🍂

PUL Team - Oct. 23, 2023, 12:29 a.m.

Aw we're so glad that the chia pudding is being enjoyed, Gabrielle - thank you 🥰

Deserts as breakfast hey hey hey. Thank you PUL!


C6Vgirl C6Vgirl - July 18, 2023, 3:14 a.m.

So good! I made an error and added 1 cup of chia..oops. I remedied that by doubling all the pudding ingredients. I then had 8 servings for one person, lol. Luckily a quick check on Google confirmed it could be frozen. I had a serving for breakfast with all the other ingredients and it was sooooo good!

PUL Team - July 18, 2023, 3:17 a.m.

Hey, C6Vgirl C6Vgirl, whoops we're glad the chia pudding was still enjoyed! 😜


Karizma Bannister - July 14, 2023, 5:57 p.m.

This was such a good start to my morning.


Shannon R. - July 8, 2023, 6:49 p.m.

I made this recently and it is so flavorful and simple to make. I made the 4 servings option so I’d have several days of breakfast ready to go. I stored the chia pudding in 1/2 pint mason jars and added my toppings when I was ready to eat them. I alternated between fresh blueberries and strawberries and added granola.

PUL Team - July 9, 2023, 6:43 a.m.

Aww this sounds incredible, Shannon 😍 thanks for taking the time to share your experience with the recipe!


Shresta Patangay - July 4, 2023, 4:11 p.m.

Love this recipe!


Anna - April 17, 2023, 4:40 a.m.


Rosanne - April 5, 2023, 11:57 p.m.

I want to give this one a try. Do you need to leave it overnight? Or would it be good to eat straight away?

PUL Team - April 7, 2023, 7:55 p.m.

Hey Rosanne, we wouldn't recommend eating this one straight away since the chia seeds need time to gel. For best results, let the recipe sit overnight otherwise it will probably be gelled enough after 2 hours 🙂


Izzi - April 3, 2023, 8:19 p.m.

I've been in search of breakfast that is high in calcium and protein and this is one of the best ever! The fact that it's delicious is just the cherry on top.

PUL Team - April 4, 2023, 4:34 a.m.

So happy to hear, Izzi 😃


Sharri Meeks - March 6, 2023, 6:35 a.m.

This is sooo good. Love the touch of cinnamon. So easy to throw on topping you have on hand. Mine was banana and walnuts

PUL Team - March 7, 2023, 1:58 p.m.

So glad to hear, Sharri!


Leonor - Jan. 25, 2023, 5:10 p.m.

So flavorful and delicious!!! The cinnamon adds such a wonderful flavor profile. Highly recommend!


Charlotte - May 20, 2022, 1:56 p.m.

I loved how the chia pudding involves maple syrup, ground cinnamon and vanilla for extra flavour and this was one of the best chia puddings I've ever had! I doubled the chia pudding part for breakfast and then added the recommended toppings (I used the PUL Crunchy Almond & Mango Granola too). So good!


Kim - Jan. 11, 2022, 7:22 p.m.

Outstanding! So simple and so yummy. Of course any fresh fruit on the top puts it out of this world!

PUL Team - Jan. 12, 2022, 4:43 a.m.

Aw so happy it's being enjoyed, Kim 🙂


Drew - Dec. 31, 2021, 5:56 a.m.

PUL Team - Sept. 12, 2021, 3:06 a.m.

So thrilled you enjoyed this one, Petra!
