Chia Pudding Recipe Thermomix

Published

My Chia pudding recipe is an easy make-ahead breakfast, which has a lovely balance of texture and flavours. This recipe has a silky consistency and is mildly sweet, but uses no refined sugars.

I love a good, grab-and-go breakfast! Especially one that you can adjust each day for a bit of variety. Anyone that knows me would know that my breakfast usually happens at about 10.30 am. This is when the kids are at school, I have finished any zoom meetings and responded to any emails.

At about that time I start feeling the first of the hunger pangs. I find this really inconvenient because I have usually just started working! Given that my work entails editing food pictures, writing about food, and thinking about what next to cook, my hunger pains don’t tend to subside until I’ve eaten!

Starting the week with a stash of chia puddings in the fridge means I can add a few toppings and get back to work quickly! I love making them in jars so that if I have to run out the door quickly I can add some fruit and yoghurt, put the lid on, and leave.

Chia Pudding Toppings

The best part of having chia puddings in the fridge is choosing the mix-ins each day for breakfast. These can be as simple as adding your favourite jam or as decadent as some of the following options.

The picture below shows my basic chia pudding recipe layered with Blueberry Chia Jam and Coconut Yoghurt. I then topped the pudding with my homemade granola for a completely vegan and refined sugar-free breakfast.

Ratio of Chia Seeds to Liquid

Most puddings I make tend to be roughly 600ml of liquid to 100g of chia seeds. This ratio can be varied slightly if you would prefer a different consistancy. For a firmer pudding just add an extra tablespoon of seeds. You may also find if you are combining the chia seeds with a thicker liquid such as yoghurt you may want to use less chia seeds.

Are Chia Seeds Good For you?

Chia seeds may be tiny but that pack a huge nutrient punch! This superfood is high in fibre and promotes good gut health, high in anti-oxidents and has 9g of protien in just 30g of seeds. It is also a good source of Omega 3 fatty acids.

A serving of chia seeds of just 30g or 2 TBS contains:

  • 14% RDI Calcium
  • 12% RDI Iron
  • 23% RDI Magnesium
  • 20% RDI Phosphorous
  • 15% RDI B1
  • 16% RDI B3
  • 12% RDI Zinc

That is an extremely good nutrient profile for just two tablespoons of food.

But like any food, it’s important to be mindful of what other ingredients are added to the Chia seeds. When you are making your chia pudding resist the urge to add refined sugar. Use fruits to sweeten the pudding if required and add crunch with nuts and seeds. Be wary of commercially prepared puddings that may contain sweeteners, artificial flavours or colours and preservatives.
