Chia Pudding Pods (5 Flavours)

3.3.17


I recently became obsessed with Chia Pods. They're healthy and make such a great breakfast/snack. HOWEVER, they cost almost $5 each. Insanity.

So, I made my own. There are 5 different flavour ideas in this post, but the options are endless. With these cute little pods, everyone at work will be envious of your new breakfast!



Here's what you'll need:
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 2 cups non-dairy milk (I used unsweetened coconut milk)
  • Any additional add-ins you'd like! Check out my 5 favourite flavour options below
Step One:

Whisk the chia seeds and milk together in a large bowl. Let sit for a few minutes and whisk again (make sure there are no clumps of chia seeds).

Step Two:

Let the mixture sit in the fridge overnight (minimum 6 hours).

Step Three:


This is where you can get creative! For all 5 of my chia pods, I layered in a couple tablespoons of plain Greek yogurt. I mixed it all together right before I was ready to eat it. But you can mix everything together first instead of layering.

*The following recipes will vary in amount depending on the size of jar you're using. Mine were about 2 cups.*

Banana Cinnamon:
  • 1 overripe banana (mashed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup chia gel
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
Add first 3 ingredients together, and layer on top of the chia gel. Top with banana slices.


Coconut Matcha:
  • 2 teaspoons matcha 
  • 1 tablespoon agave (or maple syrup/honey)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup chia gel
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
Add all ingredients to your chia gel (except yogurt). Mix together until fully incorporated. Top with any fruit you have on hand.


Apple Pie:
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • crushed graham crackers (optional)
  • 1 cup chia gel
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
Mix applesauce, cinnamon, nutmeg, and maple syrup together, and layer on top of the chia mixture. Add graham cracker crumbs on top at the very end.


PB&J:
  • handful of raspberries (mashed)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 cup chia gel
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
Layer the raspberry mixture ("jam") and peanut butter separately. Top with maple syrup and cinnamon and any extra raspberries and peanuts if you have them. 


Raspberry Mocha:
  • 1/4 cup Mocha Cold Brew Coffee
    • Alternatively, you can use any chocolate non-dairy milk and add some coffee/espresso
  • 1/2 teaspoon cocoa powder 
  • a few raspberries
  • 1 cup chia gel
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
Mix all of the ingredients together (except the raspberries and yogurt). Top with raspberries.

Pop a lid on it and you have a great portable snack!



Enjoy! xo
