How to make the blueberry chia pudding recipe
Making this chia pudding is super easy, but you will need to allow 20 minutes for the chia seeds to soak up the almond milk and form a perfectly thick chia seed pudding consistency.
While the chia seeds are soaking, make the blueberry sauce from frozen blueberries to top the chia pudding and yogurt.
Start by mixing ½ cup of chia seeds with 2.5 cups almond milk in a jug or mixing bowl. Use a fork to whisk the chia seeds evenly throughout the almond milk. Give another quick whisk in ten minutes, then again before making the individual blueberry chia puddings.
Place 4 cups of frozen blueberries into a pot with 2 tbsp honey and cook for 10 minutes over medium heat. Stir a couple of times while heating the blueberries. After heating for 10 minutes, use a potato masher to mash the blueberries into a slightly chunky blueberry sauce.
Make four individual blueberry chia puddings by equally dividing the chia pudding into the bottom of each jar. Top with ¼ cup low-fat plain yogurt, then spoon the blueberry sauce on top of each chia pudding.
Enjoy these healthy chia puddings right away, or store them in the fridge for a later date. You can also top the chia puddings with some homemade granola before serving for a textured crunch that is so yummy!
