This recipe for an easy two-ingredient chia seed pudding is a go-to for meal prepping snacks!
I’ve teamed up with my local grocery store, Jewel-Osco to share how I use O Organics® and Open Nature® plant-based products to feed my family. Recently, I have been using almond milk and almond butter to make chia seed pudding!
I love chia seed pudding because it is a nutritious snack that can be prepared with just a minute of active prep time. The best part is that chia seed pudding has the taste and thick texture of the pudding that I ate for dessert when I was a kid, but it’s made with healthy ingredients! You just need two simple ingredients to make this chia seed pudding: almond milk and chia seeds.
You can use any type of almond milk. I chose to use O Organics® Vanilla Almond Milk and Open Nature® Chocolate Almond Milk. These plant-based milks are delicious, flavorful, high protein, budget-friendly alternatives to animal products.
I regularly buy both O Organics® and Open Nature® products since I am always searching for “better for you” plant-based ingredients for recipes. O Organics® products are 100% USDA-certified organic and non-GMO. Open Nature® products are minimally-processed plant-based products free from 110 food additives.
The toppings are the most fun part of eating chia seed pudding! I added toppings like fresh berries, sliced apples, Signature SELECT ™ Mini Chocolate Chips, and Open Nature Creamy Almond Butter with Cinnamin to my puddings.
The end result was several healthy plant-based snacks that I could store in my fridge and eat throughout the week. If you plan to meal prep chia seed pudding I definitely recommend putting individual servings in containers with lids – I am a big fan of grab and go snacks!
How to make Chia Seed Pudding:
- 1/2 cup Vanilla or Chocolate Almond Milk
- 2 tablespoons Chia Seeds
- Toppings of your choice
- Pour the almond milk into a container with a lid. Then stir in the chia seeds. Mix thoroughly.
- Place the lid on the container and refrigerate the pudding for at least 6 hours- or overnight.
- Add toppings just before serving!
You can use any type of almond milk. I like to use unsweetened vanilla or chocolate almond milk.
