This Coffee Chia Seed Pudding is a perfect dessert for breakfast! The chia seeds help you feel full and satisfied and the coffee gives you that extra pick me up you need in the mornings!
The best part is you can make these the night before so it’s all ready to go when your morning hunger kicks in.
I usually have at least a few of these in my fridge so when I have busy mornings, which is often with two little ones, I can grab it and go.
I’m sensitive to caffeine so I usually skip my morning tea, but the coffee in this pudding really gives me an extra boost I need to get going!
It’s really the best of both worlds and I highly recommend giving this a try. Now let’s talk about the benefits of chia seeds!
Chia seeds are packed with omega 3s, which is the good kind of fat that you want. It also contains protein and dietary fibers.
Plus, two tablespoons of Chia seeds contains 8g of carbs and 8g of fiber equaling 0 net carbs. I can’t think of a healthier dessert than that!
Just a note that we’ve learned along the way! If your chia seeds are a bit old, they may not absorb the liquid as well resulting in a slightly runnier pudding. Just add less liquid if this happens.
Also if you’re not familiar with chia pudding, it’s more a gel consistency and not like jello or custard. If you prefer a thicker consistency, use less water or increase the amount of chia seeds!
Chia Seed pudding can be stored in the refrigerator covered for up to 5 days.
