Chia Seed Pudding is the New Black

Chia Seed Pudding with Peanut Butter Drizzle

It’s healthier than cereal. It’s the grain-free alternative to oatmeal. It’s way tastier than grits or cream of wheat. It’s basically the new black. AKA chia seed pudding is the best breakfast ever!

Chia Seed Pudding with PB Drizzle

You may remember my Warm Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding post from February, but this one’s a little different. First off, it’s May… and as much as we don’t want to admit it (or maybe we’re really freakin’ excited about it), summer is coming!!

So not only does that mean that bikini season is in fact around the corner (hello, healthy meal guides!) but we don’t want to eat warm pudding for breakfast! We want cool, refreshing chia seed pudding with berries and bananas and peanut butter drizzles galore!

There are a couple of ingredients that make this particular chia seed pudding really, really good!

One… I use this coconut almond milk blend and it’s delicious. No funny tasting wannabe milk over here. Just really good creamy, coconut-y flavor without the dairy, hormones, and genetically engineered ingredients.

Two, I’m pretty sure I perfected the peanut butter drizzle on this one. I just scoop a dollop of JIF All Natural Creamy PB into the corner of a sandwich-sized Ziploc (be careful, my generic baggie ripped) and ever so delicately cut the tip of the corner off. Voila! You have a homemade frosting tip!

PS – I was super excited when I found these individual size JIF PB’s on Amazon! They’re perfect for dipping your apples in, too!

Alright alright, enough about my ingredients. The anticipation is over. Here it is… your new favorite breakfast.
