Gluten Free Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding
To start my days off right I am always looking for something that is healthy, will give me the energy I need for the day, and is light. I sometimes feel like breakfast foods can be heavy and a little overbearing, and while I absolutely love breakfast foods I don’t love the calories or how full it makes me fill. I also refuse to eat too much toast and sugary cereals even though it’s convenient it’s absolutely not what I call good nutrition. That’s why I love starting my days with this vanilla and chia seed pudding! It is sugar free, gluten free, lactose free, filled with chia seeds and topped with fruit. This easy to make and put together breakfast will give you continuous energy throughout the day.
This pudding is easy to make and even easier to dress it up with your favorite berries! While I love eating it for breakfast, it is also the perfect thing to bring to a bridal or baby shower, a lady’s luncheon, or just to eat around the pool. I like to put them in 8 oz. mason jars and top them off with different fruits. And everyone knows that putting something in a mason jar always makes it cuter. It could be used as a breakfast food, brunch, or even as dessert. But no matter when you decide to eat it, your guest will be oohing and raving over how delicious this pudding really is!
If I haven’t already made you fall in love with both the ingredients and presentation of this recipe, maybe you’ll love to hear that you can take these on the go! That is all thanks to those cute little mason jars we like to use. I bring them to all of my girl’s activities, when I go to the gym or even if I’m just going to be spending the day in the car going from place to place. This pudding is perfect. But wait, one more thing, it is also gluten free, lactose free and sugar free! Made with your favorite milk substitute and you can change and make it from almond milk, coconut milk, or any other milk substitute you prefer. No gluten breakfast because I use chia seeds which are excellent source of plant protein, high in vitamins, minerals, omega 3, and antioxidants. And to top it all I use a natural sweetener that tastes great and is very low calorie making this irresistible. This breakfast gives you great nutrition while being healthy without sugar, safe for diabetic because of Lite and Sweet low glycemic index of 3 and a great option for anyone concerned with the overuse of sugar. There are about a million reasons why I love this pudding and now you can love it as much as I do!
