How to Make Blueberry Chia Pudding
Now that we’ve got everything lined up let’s dive into the step-by-step process of creating this delectable breakfast treat.
Step 1: Blend the Blueberries
In a high-speed blender, combine the frozen blueberries, almond milk, a touch of stevia for sweetness, and a pinch of sea salt. Blend until you achieve a smooth, velvety mixture with that beautiful purple hue.
Step 2: Mix in the Chia Seeds
Transfer the blueberry mixture to a bowl and add the 1/4 cup of chia seeds. Stir the mixture well to ensure the chia seeds are evenly distributed. Allow it to sit for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator or overnight for the best results. During this time, the chia seeds absorb the liquid and become a pudding-like consistency.
Once your Blueberry Chia Pudding is ready, it’s time to add the finishing touches. Sprinkle 1/8 cup of gr8nola granola for a delightful crunch, and top it off with a sprinkle of coconut shavings. These toppings enhance the texture and add a delightful layer of flavor.
Recipe Variations and Tips
Milk Alternatives: If you’re not a fan of almond milk, feel free to use any other milk alternative, such as coconut milk, soy milk, or oat milk. You can also use 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt and 1/2 cup milk of choice for an extra protein boost.
Fruit Variations: While blueberries are fantastic, you can experiment with other frozen fruits like strawberries, raspberries, or mixed berries for a unique twist.
Sweeteners: Adjust the sweetness to your liking by using honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar instead of stevia.
Refrigeration: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. The pudding may thicken slightly over time, but a quick stir will restore its creamy consistency.
Can I prepare this the night before?
Absolutely! Preparing the Blueberry Chia Pudding the night before allows the chia seeds to absorb the liquid, resulting in a full creamy texture.
Our Blueberry Chia Pudding is a testament that a nutritious breakfast can be incredibly delicious.
