This chia blueberry pudding is a quick breakfast recipe ready in a little over 10 minutes. We made it with soy yogurt, chia seeds, walnuts, blueberries, dates, and a splash of almond milk. It's vegan and nutritious, perfect for any diet!
We designed this recipe to boost your omega-3 fats and proteins intake. Eating protein-rich foods in the morning can help losing weight by curbing hunger and promoting muscle growth. Omega-3 fats provide more long-term benefits, like reducing the risk of developing heart diseases .
So we took some chia seeds and walnuts, both rich sources of omega-3 and proteins, and put them in our blueberry pudding. By the way, you can also use flaxseeds with or as an alternative to chia seeds, as they are another excellent source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids.
To make the pudding vegan, we used dairy-free milk and yogurt. We opted for almond milk and soy yogurt, but feel free to choose whichever type you prefer.
Finally, we made this recipe without maple syrup, honey, or added sugars. Instead, we added a few dates in the blender and got all the natural sweetness we needed. We love dates and use them pretty much everywhere. We even made pure caramel using nothing but dates! It's one of our coolest and most successful experiments. By the way, imagine adding a spoonful of that tasty caramel to this blueberry pudding... Yum!
Overall, a portion of this morning pudding will give you 24% RDI for proteins, 35% RDI for fibres, 7% RDI for carbs, and just 270 calories. You'll also get 3900mg of ALA omega-3, which is over 200% of your RDI. Your body will love it, and we think your belly will do too!
