This chia seed pudding is a fast and easy “make ahead” breakfast for any occasion! Make the chia seed pudding the night before and BOOM, it’s ready to eat the next morning. Seriously, just grab your spoon and eat it right out of the container if that’s your style. IT’S THAT EASY.

And if you’re traveling, this chia seed pudding is the perfect hotel room breakfast! Throw all the dry ingredients (no almond milk or maple syrup) in a container or sealable plastic bag and pack it in your suitcase. Once you arrive at your destination, pick up some almond milk (or your favorite non-dairy milk) and you’ve got everything you need for a protein and superfood packed breakfast to start your day!

    The color combination is really appealing! I love chia pudding. What kind of protein powder and collagen powder do you recommend for this?

      Thank you! I’m a huge fan of Primal Kitchen’s Vanilla Coconut Primal Fuel. I use it in all of my chia seed puddings and baked goods! Look out for a coupon for PF on my pancake recipe post tomorrow 🙂 And for collagen powder, I love Vital Proteins collagen peptides. It’s a really high quality product made from grass-fed cows and it doesn’t affect the flavor of anything!

    Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a totally different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!

      Haha thank you! It’s amazing how much you can customize the templates on WordPress so no two blogs are exactly alike 🙂

    Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.

      Hi there, thanks for the comment! Yes, I do get a lot of spam comments – it’s pretty annoying. I haven’t done any research on spam blocking plug ins, but that’s something I want to look into. Currently, I just go through the comments and mark them as spam. I’ll let you know if I come up with a better solution! Best of luck.
