Peanut Butter and Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding is an easy make ahead breakfast or snack made with chia seeds, yogurt, mashed blueberries, peanut butter, and almond milk. All the flavors of peanut butter and jelly in a creamy chia pudding.
This healthy Peanut Butter and Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding, inspired by a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, is a fiber and protein packed breakfast or snack you can prep ahead and enjoy all week. Using chia seeds, which pack in tons of nutritional benefits, this spin on a traditional chia pudding couldn't be more delicious.
Do you remember when chia seed puddings were all the rage? They literally showed up everywhere you looked - blogs, newspapers, restaurant menus - and then things sorted of died down. But even though chia seed pudding has fallen off the radar, it still continues to be a powerhouse breakfast or snack packed with fiber, protein, and lots of good for you nutrients.
This version using mashed blueberries, Greek yogurt, almond milk, and peanut butter is kind of like a spin on peanut butter and jelly. Just make sure to really stir the yogurt, almond milk, and peanut butter well so that the peanut butter flavor is carried throughout the pudding. If you like things sweet, you may want to add a touch of sweetener as well since this isn't overly sweet on its own. You can use any sweetener that fits your diet but I recommend maple syrup, honey, Stevia for low carb, or a mashed banana.
Whenever I post a chia pudding recipe, I always get lots of questions about how to make a basic chia seed pudding since people are usually inspired to make their own creations. The base recipe for one serving is
If you are using yogurt in your pudding, then it is best to use fewer chia seeds since the yogurt is already thick
Then can add in any toppings you like. Think about fresh and frozen fruit, nut butters, nuts, seeds, spices, cocoa powder, citrus zest, and more.
When you are shopping for chia seeds, you may notice that you can buy both white and black chia seeds available. There is no difference in taste or nutrition between these two types so it really just it a matter of your personal preference and aesthetics. Be wary of brown chia seeds however, since they likely didn't have time to ripen.
