Tropical Puree over Chia Pudding

Chia Pudding

During the warm summer months we like to eat cooler foods and this chia pudding with tropical puree is perfect! It’s easy to make the night before so you don’t have to rush in the morning. In fact, chia pudding will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days, so make a few of these to have on hand! Not only is it easy to make, but chia seeds provide omega-3 fatty acids that promote heart and joint health and aid memory.

Green Pudding with Chia Seeds

March 17, 2014

Green Pudding CupsToday seemed like a good day to post our green pudding recipe. We’ve been loving chia seeds lately and wanted to experiment with a chia seed dessert. This started out as a smoothie, but ended up more like a pudding, which was a nice surprise. The avocado gives a creamy almost whipped consistency, while the chia seeds add that gummy-like texture.



1 avocado (a list of health benefits here)

1 banana

1 tablespoon chia seeds (a list of health benefits here)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup Almond Milk (we use Silk Pure Almond Milk or Trader Joe’s refrigerated, both do not contain Carrageenan)


Blend all ingredients and pour into ramekins or glasses. Set in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours. (We set ours overnight). The chia seeds will thicken as they soak up the liquid. Enjoy!
