A refreshing superfood breakfast or snack that’s easy to make and will keep you full!
Might sound like an intimidating combo but let me assure you it’s creamy, it’s bright, it’s refreshing and it’s goooood. Also, no, the lemon & milk doesn’t curdle.
Lemon and ginger are both powerfully anti-inflammatory while chia seeds are full of fiber & protein making this a well balanced recipe.
What else? It’s super easy to make, one of the biggest perks of this pudding. Like 10min total.
I like to make it from time to time and have as a breakfast midday snack.
Here are 3 noteworthy reasons why I love chia seeds:
- They’re a superfood! Not only rich in anti-inflammatory antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, but they also contain magnesium and iron. Plus, they’re soothing to our digestive tract.
- They can be added to more than you think. You can make the delicious pudding I’ve linked and you can add them to smoothies, use as an egg replacer or mix them into salads, granola, or baked goods!
- They’re relatively cheap seeds. A bang for your buck considering they’re a complete source of protein and have such a long shelf life. A little goes a long way too.
Another great thing about chia pudding is how easy it is to mix in different flavors. In my opinion, I think it needs some kind of freshness. This is usually where fruit, like berries, comes in.
Some other flavor combinations could be chocolate-peanut butter, cinnamon-raisin, peaches & cream, chai spiced, or mango-coconut. Just some ideas!
I hope you try this recipe out, let me know if you do and be sure to tag me online @mealsbytiia and share your creations!

Add all the ingredients to a container or a jar in the order listed then whisk or stir to combine well.
Place the mix in the fridge and let it set for at least 30 minutes, I typically like to make it before bed so it’s nice and thick the next morning.
