Cinnamon-Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Cinnamon-Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding


Am I overdoing it with all of these chia seed pudding recipes?

First it was the matcha and vanilla chia seed pudding, and it all kind of spiraled from there.

And this was all because I read about the benefits of chia seeds in a grocery store, and bought them on an impulse buy. I mean, most stores put candy and pop right beside the checkout, and I can almost always resist it. But wave chia seeds in front of me? Apparently I cave.

But this experimenting with chia seeds journey has been a very fun and delicious one. So far I have only made puddings with them, but I would LOVE some suggestions on what to do with them next. I have been thinking of putting it in smoothies, but that is about as creative as I'm getting right now.

And if you think that I'm getting all healthy on you recently, it's just because I have been neglecting to take pictures of the cakes I have been making. I recently made one of the most delicious chocolate cakes I have ever made, but of course, I forgot to take a picture of it, and it was gone by the end of the day. #bloggerfail.

But at least I have this easy recipe. The cinnamon definitely adds an extra kick to an already delicious chia seed pudding. I love it!

  1. Cathleen this pudding looks yummy! I have to admit that I haven't tried chia seed...yet. What does it taste like?

    1. If you eat chia seeds dry, it tastes kind of like poppy seeds. If you make them in these puddings..the closest thing I could compare them to is tapioca pearls

  3. There can never be enough chia seed pudding recipes, and this sounds delightful! I gotta top up on chia seeds, was looking for them the other day, but could only find them in the shop overpriced :S Where do you buy yours?
    You can also add them to overnight oats for a little more of a chia consistency, AND you can cook up berried or fruit with chia seeds and a little sweetener and make home made jam :D x

    1. It depends on where you live. I live in Canada, and I bought it at Winners, where it's a bit cheaper than in grocery stores. But it's true..most places they are really expensive.
