That’s when I discovered the magic of the Chia Pudding. It was like a superfood-packed dessert, and the best part? It was completely guilt-free!

This recipe was a lifesaver for me during my pregnancy. It's so simple, yet so satisfying. The chia seeds form a pudding-like consistency when soaked in milk, and when topped with fresh fruit, it's a combination that's both nutritious and satisfying. Plus, it's quick and easy to prepare, which is a huge bonus when you're dealing with pregnancy fatigue.



  1. Mix the chia seeds and milk in a bowl

  2. Let it sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or overnight if possible

  3. Once the chia seeds have absorbed the milk and formed a pudding-like consistency, top with your favorite fruits

  4. That's it! You're ready to enjoy your nutritious and satisfying snack


Once you've prepared the chia pudding, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will thicken and set as it chills. If you have any leftovers, they can be stored for up to 3-4 days. Before serving, give the chia pudding a good stir as it may have settled. Enjoy it cold, or you can let it come to room temperature before eating.
