Warm and cozy Chai Chia Pudding made in about five minutes! Gluten Free + Paleo + Vegan + Low FODMAP
I’ve found my breakfast for the next 4-6 months on these chilly autumn/winter mornings. It’s warm and cozy and smells like a dream….tastes like one too!
I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to realise that you can make WARM chia pudding. On the stove in less than 10 minutes. Considering the fact that I’ve made chia seed jam only a million times this past summer I really should have known better. Ya girl can be real slow sometimes, ya know?
I know part of the appeal of a traditional chia pudding is that you can make them ahead of time and just pull them out of the fridge in the morning as an easy, grab and go breakfast. My problem is that I’m just not usually into cold breakfasts. Maybe if I were still living in Arizona where it’s always 300 degrees outside I’d be more into it, but that’s just not the case here. Most of the time I’m too cold to leave my bed in the morning let alone sit down with a cold bowl of cold pudding.
Have I mentioned how COLD I get? #MiddleClassSubrubanWhiteGirlProblems
Let’s make a hot chai chia pudding! Isn’t that fun to say?
This recipe is super easy to make and requires only 5 ingredients + about 5 minutes on the stove top.
It’s made up of:
✔️Maple Syrup (or another sweetener of your choosing)
Just whisk it all together in a small pot and heat until it thickens up to your liking.
If you’re not crazy about chai spice or you don’t have any on hand you could always just use cinnamon in its place or play with other flavours. This recipe is pretty versatile and easy to make your own so long as you keep the amounts of things the same.
No matter how you make it I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
And on that note – time for breakfast!
