Sick of toast and cereal? Looking for a healthy option for breakfast? *said in an infomercial voice* Allow me to share my Fruit Filled Chia Seed Pudding recipe with you, its easy…kind of quick depending on how fast you chop fruit…its delicious AND healthy.

I started with the chia seed pudding mix – I put about four tablespoons of chia seeds into a mason jar then filled the jar half way with coconut milk and let it settle in the fridge while I got myself ready for work.

Theres no limit as to what chopped fruit you use, today I decided on a plum, nectarine and apple mix. I like my fruit chopped up really small, its cute, easy to eat, and makes you feel full faster because there are so many little pieces for you to chew. I added all my chopped fruit into a container big enough for all the fruit with enough space for the chia seed pudding to mix in. This is something you can do before hand and just keep in the fridge.

Time to add the pudding…I like a bit more flavour in my pudding so I add a bit of honey and cinnamon.

Okay lets just say what we are all thinking..”this looks gross” maybe so, it looks weird and almost mouldy but I’ll be straight up honest with you, this was AMAZING. Sometimes I like to go crazy and add crushed pecans or crushed walnuts…you could even add dried fruit if you wanted like dried cranberries, maybe even add some granola. I like recipes I can change up on a whim depending on my mood that day – this is something that is easy, healthy, and convenient to grab and go, just prep before hand and you’re set!
