On-The-Go Chia Pudding Breakfast: 3 Ways

On-The-Go Chia Pudding Breakfast: 3 Ways

Gross confession time: the chia seeds I used in this recipe were from a bag that I bought from Costco, like, 3 years ago.

Actually it’s funny because before I used them, I googled the question, “how long do chia seeds last?” I scanned the web pages and saw the number ‘4’ appear somewhere on the first page of results, so I decided they were fine to use.

Now that I think about it, I didn’t even check the expiry date on the bag…
Hm.

Anyway, the chia pudding tasted amazing (all three flavours), and i’m still alive, so i’m assuming they were fine.

I was in Kupfert and Kim the other day, (my new fav place to eat post-workout) and saw they were selling some tiny green avocado chia puddings for like, way too much money. I was torn between practical spending, and the taste of avocado pudding in my mouth! (The practical Asian in me won out).

Not even a day later, one of my friends posted a pic on Insta-stories of an Earl Grey chia pudding breakfast that she had made. It was covered in berries and coconut and looked DELICIOUS.

I was surrounded by chia puddings that I could not eat.

I needed an outlet.

I ran to my kitchen and grabbed the sad, crushed, and mostly empty bag of chia seeds that I had shoved behind all the other things I don’t use – plastic straws, Dollarama water bottles, etc. There was exactly enough to make 3 chia puddings, which would last me for three mornings of breakfasts for the week.

Being the creative-mind that I am, I decided I would make three different flavors. Insurance is boring enough, I needed my breakfast to have PIZZAZ!!!!

I decided to go with Blueberry Matcha, Almond & Vanilla Protein, and Earl Grey Raspberry.

Pretty good, eh?

The liquids for the Chia Pudding Breakfast are all different. For the Earl Grey tea, I had to steep it first, and then let it cool down to room temperature. I like the taste of Earl Grey so I steeped it for about 10 minutes. For the matcha I used my favvvv, Matcha Ninja brand – this stuff mixes so well so it’s perfect. Finally, for the Vanilla Almond I used Kaizen Vanilla isolate.

If you’re going to make one, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Almond & Vanilla protein. It was seriously like a dessert rather than a healthy, protein packed breakfast. The Kaizen vanilla is seriously so delicious in it, it tastes like a milkshake.
