If you’re anything like me, you probably find you never have time to make a ‘proper’ breakfast. Morning meals are usually thrown together in a matter of minutes, with little time for experimentation with new flavours or recipes. I’m here to remind you that there is a breakfast recipe you can turn to that only requires a couple of ingredients, a tiny bit of forethought and a few spare seconds – enter the chia pudding.
This dish is a popular one because it tastes like a dessert, it’s easy as hell to make and it’s pretty healthy for you as well (it’s super high in fibre), depending on what kind of toppings you add to it.
For those who have never made chia pudding before, there are endless takes on how to whip one up at home yourself. All you really need is chia seeds, your milk variety of choice and some topping options.
Here is a particularly popular take from, you guessed it, TikTok, which will get you a sweet, berry-loaded chia pudding breakfast in no time.
