It took me a long time to get on board with chia pudding- that texture is not for everyone. But the gelling quality of the chia seeds that makes chia pudding so unpleasant for some also makes it perfect to achieve a blended pudding texture! For this blended chia pudding, you simply put all your chia pudding ingredients in a blender to achieve a smooth and creamy texture that is surprisingly reminiscent of the pudding cups I enjoyed as a child. Give it a try if you want all the benefits chia seeds can offer without those little slippery seeds getting stuck in your teeth.
I’ve been enjoying these little jars of blended chia pudding as a quick breakfast, snack, or dessert that I can just grab from the fridge anytime I’m craving something sweet. All 5 ingredients are added to a blender, then blended until very smooth and creamy. The chia seeds will instantly begin to thicken the pudding and you can eat it right away, but I think it’s better after it’s been chilled.
If you’d prefer to enjoy this chia pudding without blending it, simply add all the ingredients to a large bowl and stir until well combined. Let it sit for 15 minutes before stirring again and pouring into individual jars if desired.
