7 of the Best Overnight Chia Pudding Recipes

Chia is an ancient superfood which is believed to date back to the Aztec and Mayans as early as 3500 BC. Over recent years has exploded in popularity. Known for their concentrated nutritional benefits, Chia seeds deliver a multitude of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They are also gluten free, rich in protein, high in dietary fibre and are the highest known plant source of Omega 3's.

Yep! They definitely fall into the realm “Super duper food” making Chia an excellent choice for breakfast. With their mild taste, they can be combined with pretty much any flavour combination to make a exciting breakfast creations that you can make the night before and take with you.

To make a Chia Pudding - the basic recipe we follow is 1/2 cup Chia (weather you prefer white or black Chia, the taste and nutritional benefits are the same) to 2 cups of liquid. As you combine your liquid and Chia, you will immediately see the mixture thicken. Leave the mixture for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally so the Chia is well combined. Leave it in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight.

Chia will last a few days in the fridge, so I always make a big enough batch to last a few breakfasts and portion it out into jars or store in an air tight container. So in the morning, all you need to do is add your favourite topping - fruit, coconut, muesli or yoghurt - and go!
