Chia Puddings have been doing the rounds for a while now. Chia seeds are sooooo good for you. Despite their desserty nature they are healthy enough for breakfast! Fabulous way to start the day with a bunch full of Omega 3's, protein, calcium and fibre {and lots lots more}!

We enjoy making the Coconut Milk Chocolate Pudding but thought we'd try something a little different this time.

This recipe will thicken in a few hours, but I always find it best to do the night before, or at least in the morning for dessert that night.

Apple Pie Chia Pudding
1 1/2C milk {choose your poison by I used full cream cows milk}
1/2C chia seeds {makes it really thick, could possibly get away with about 1/3C though}
2-4 Tablespoons Apple Juice Concentrate {this adds the apple flavour so don't skimp on it}
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Mix ingredients all together in a bowl until well combined.
Pop in the fridge for it to thicken up.
Give it a stir a few times as it thicken to evenly distribute the chia seeds.
It's beautiful when served with a nice dollop of cream for extra good fats.
Grate in some apple just before serving for extra appley goodness.

Do you use Chia seeds? What's your fave way to have them?

Take Care


  1. I love Chai! I want to try this x

  2. Do you think I could substitute with pureed apples becci? Lisa

    1. You could certainly add them Lisa. The basic chia pudding is fairly forgiving. Chia seeds do absorb a fair bit of moisture so make sure you have enough.
      Give it a burl, maybe halve the recipe to try?

  3. Where is your free printable gone?

    1. I'm still playing with it. I'm not very techy and having a little trouble loading it up so it looks nice and is downloadable. Hopefully I'll have it up later in the week.
