It’s so good to wake up in the morning and have jar of super healthy and delicious breakfast ready for my hungry tummy. Ever since making my first chia seed pudding, I’ve tried many varieties of it. I’ve added oats, nuts, yoghurt, dried fruits and top them with fresh fruits. This is one of my favourite: chia seed pudding with oats and berries.
I use blueberries for two reasons 1) I try to have a rainbow diet and blueberry satisfy the blue/indigo colour 2) There’s no need to peel or chop the berries. Just sprinkle onto the pudding after rinsing them. How unfortunate that this berry is rather expensive as compared to other fruits.
The addition of oats makes it more filling. Besides, oats offer many health benefits such as lowering cholesterol. Cinnamon powder add a distinct flavour to the pudding and may lower blood sugar in people with diabetes. My family members who are afflicted with it like to add a pinch of cinnamon powder into their coffee in the morning.
Soy milk x 1 cup
Chia seeds x 1/4 cup
Oats x 1/4 cup
Honey x 1 tbsp
Cinnamon powder x 1 tsp
Blueberries x 1/4 cup
- In a small pitcher or bowl, add soymilk, chia seed, oats, honey and cinnamon powder. Mix well.
- Pour mixture into a glass jar. Cover it and let it sit in the fridge overnight
- Enjoy your pudding with blueberries.
In the morning, rinse the blueberries and sprinkle it on your cold pudding. It can be a complete breakfast on its own, but I personally treat it like a morning dessert. I make a smaller portion and have it alongside other warmer food like toast or congee.
