Chia pudding needs no introduction. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already noticed my obsession with chia pudding and some of my favorite flavors. Some of the reasons I like chia pudding are: making chia pudding is easy and doesn’t require a long list of ingredients, it is delicious and choke full of nutrients, it makes for a wonderful make ahead on the go breakfast/pre and post workout snack and helps with those afternoon hunger pangs/ sweet cravings, they are like a blank canvas and can be flavored as desired and the list goes on and on. For the recipe below, you can adjust the amount of nut mylk to adjust the consistency. You can make it the night before or a few days in advance as they store well in the refrigerator for up to a few days. You can also increase the quantity of specific fruits and flavor combination if you prefer a specific flavor instead of all three flavors.
