Chia Pudding Two Ways

Chia Puddings are some of my favorite go to breakfasts, because they really satisfy your sweet tooth, are super simple to make, and are made the night before so it’s easy in the morning!  These specific chia puddings are extra easy, because we’re using flavored Califia Almond Milks as our base!  You only need a couple of ingredients to make these, and the almond milks you can order from Milk & Eggs!

I partnered up with Milk & Eggs to bring you this amazing recipe.  Milk & Eggs is a food delivery service that sends you farm fresh produce right to your door!  Heres a little more about this amazing company.

Their produce goes fresh from farms to you. Fresher foods = better health!  Prices are always low because there is never any waste, inventory, middlemen, or complicated distribution centers.  You can order once or subscribe to get weekly or bi-weekly produce. Subscriptions can be updated, paused, or changed at anytime. And you save on the process of ordering, buying, and picking up groceries!  They also carry so many amazing vegan products, like different vegan milks, yogurt, cheeses, broths, pastas, jerky, dumplings, etc. on top of a huge selection of the most delicious produce!

Like really, who doesn’t want amazing vegan foods delivered right to their door?  Especially when you can make fancy recipes like this using their products!  Big thanks to Milk & Eggs for sending me the ingredients needed for this recipe, and a few others (which will be up soon, so stay tuned!).  Definitely go check them out if you are interested in getting some farm fresh produce and vegan products delivered to your door!  And you can check them out at www.milkandeggs.com

So let’s talk about these almond milks and their flavors.  I chose to use these two from Califia Farms, Matcha Almond Milk & Ginger Turmeric Almond Milk.  The Matcha one is very sweet and earthy, and really has a strong matcha / green tea flavor which I love.  The Ginger Turmeric one reminds me of a golden milk.  It’s spicy, yet sweet, and I’m sure is great to boost your immune system if you’re sick!  You can obviously use any flavor almond milk for this, or if you can’t find these guys, you can make your own flavors!

So for both of these puddings, you’ll need the same ingredients.  Your flavored almond milk, coconut nectar (or maple syrup), and chia seeds.  Like how easy is that!? Simply mix your almond milk with the chia seeds and coconut nectar, transfer to a mason jar, and place in the fridge.  I don’t think I could make this any simpler for you guys.  You’ll need to let these set up for at least 3-4 hours, but overnight is ideal.  These are great because they take all of 3 minutes to assemble and get in the fridge, and if you do it the night before it’s a great grab and go breakfast.

So as far as toppings and add ons go, you can enjoy the puddings by themselves, but I like to add extra goodies to make them seem a whole lot fancier.  For the matcha pudding, I added raspberry jam, and fresh raspberries (also sold on milk & eggs).  Layer the pudding, then jam, pudding, jam, then raspberries.  It’ll look really pretty and like a parfait in your dish! For the ginger turmeric pudding, I paired this up with plain vegan yogurt, and a fresh mango rose (also sold on milk & eggs).  The mango rose is super easy to make and is really such a show stopper.  For this just peel your mango, take one section you cut off and slice very thin.  Slowly spread out the mango slices into a “U” shape, and then start rolling!  There are plenty of YouTube videos on how to make mango roses, but if you can’t find any you can also look up an avocado rose as well because you use the same technique!  I like to assemble and add my toppings right before eating because I think it tastes better this way, but you could definitely assemble this the night before if needed!
And that’s pretty much it!  I don’t think this could get any easier, right?  Such a quick recipe that is so stunning and looks a whole lot fancier than it is… plus you can get the ingredients delivered to your door?  Yes please!  I really hope you guys enjoy this recipe!
