Vanilla MCT Chia Seed Pudding
Chia Pudding is an easy to make breakfast, snack or sweet treat that has endless possibilities.
This version is very simple and a great way to get started with chia!
My 1 and 3 year old daughters love eating this chia pudding just as much as they love helping me make it!
With a texture similar to tapioca it is a delightful way to start the morning and yields amazing energy that is sure to keep you going long past your coffee buzz.
Is chia pudding healthy or not? This really depends on how it is prepared. In this recipe there is no sugar or sweetener other than stevia in the MCT powder mix. A few berries add only a slight amount of sugar and lots of antioxidant and vitamin rich nutrients along with delisous flavor! However, if you add honey, maple syrup or other types of sugars and sweeteners this once healthy option can become basically a dessert.
Chia pudding is one of the simplest recipes to make which is awesome when trying to stay healthy with an already full schedule

If you choose not to order keto//kreme you will want to add a little flavoring to your chia pudding. I recommend stevia or erythritol as they do not affect your blood sugar. you can also add a small amount of vanilla extract.
*these substitutions don’t blend as well as the original recipe with keto//kreme if you would like to try a single pack contact me at [email protected]
Berries are rich in vitamins and antioxidants, they are also full of flavor and are a delicious addition to chia pudding.
Berries do contain sugar so if blood sugar balancing is your goal don’t over indulge. However, berries are not as high in sugar is most fruits and they are exceptionally high in vitamins and antioxidants so they are definitely good for you in appropriate quantities.
