Good morning! So if you've seen my most recent Unblogged Files, you'll see that my breakfast game is super-strong right now! Woo! My usuals are avocado on toast (surprise!), overnight oats or açaí bowls, but I've gotten back into chia seed puddings in a big way. I love their sweet gloopiness, and their nutritional content is a huge bonus! You may remember my basic chia pudding recipe from January last year, and for today I'd like to share four different chia seed pudding recipes with you - enjoy! Each of the recipes below serve one.


Açaí Chia Seed Pudding

Clearly I was feeling a bit nervous about abandoning my usual açaí bowls for another superfood breakfast. I'm happy to say that this delicious chia-açaí hybrid was the result.

Açaí Chia Seed Pudding

6 tablespoons milk of your choice
2 medjool dates, pitted
100 grams frozen açaí purée
Fresh blueberries, to serve

Matcha Chia Seed Pudding

I got some matcha sent to me from Lite Leaf, and thought it would be a nice way to flavour up my chia seed pudding. The strawberries were added because I had them in the fridge, strawberries go well with matcha, and the whole thing just looks so darn festive.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Chia Seed Pudding

I found this recipe online (on one of those "10 Best Healthy Breakfast" listicles). I'm not sure how healthy this version is, with its generous addition of peanut butter, raspberry jam and salted peanuts, but I must say, I don't really care. It's peanut butter jelly time!
