Chai Latte Chia Seed Pudding | Whole 30

It's Day 15 of Whole 30 (halfway, whoop!). I am feeling great but, I must admit, I'm getting pretty tired of my usual breakfast. Since we have been attempting to go egg-free this month, my breakfast usually consists of kale, turkey meat, and some fruit. Not bad, but also not exciting 15 days in a row. So, I decided to switch things up and make a batch of chia seed pudding for the week.

This pudding is easy to make and does a pretty good job in satisfying any sweet breakfast cravings you may be having. The "chai latte" flavoring makes this a perfect morning pick me up to start your day. It also does an amazing job in filling you up until lunchtime due to the chia seeds becoming gelatinous to create a dense texture.

Any recipe incorporating chia seeds will wonderfully compliment your current diet. Chia seeds are a fantastic source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, and even calcium!

All in all, this superfood pudding is sure to make for a great breakfast and a nice switch from the ordinary routine. If it's cold outside, you can pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds and pretend it's oatmeal. The options are limitless.

Enjoy!
