New Recipe #9 – Tropical Chia Breakfast

I really have trouble getting these chia puddings to turn out right. Too thin, too thick, not enough flavor, etc. This time I messed up because I didn’t have plain yogurt. I did have some organic vanilla greek yogurt. This yogurt is sweetened, so I thought I could skip the added sweetener. Wrong! It was so sour without added sweetener.  I’m not very good at remembering to taste as I make and adjust. Gordon Ramsey would send me home right away! I will try this again and make sure it is sweet enough to enjoy. Otherwise the flavors were good, although it turned out pretty thick.

Tropical Chia Breakfast


1/4 c skim yogurt (greek is best)
2 Tbsp coconut milk
1 small banana
1 round of pineapple
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 tsp vanilla
8 drops of liquid stevia (or other sweetener of choice)


Prepare the night before to give the seeds time to swell and become pudding-like. In a blender or magic/nutri bullet, combine all of the ingredients except the chia seeds.  Blend until incorporated.  Stir in the chia seeds. Pour into a bowl or jar, cover and let sit in the fridge overnight.

  1. It sounds good! My best friend makes chia pudding (and chia everything else…she swears by it) and loves it. I’ve never tried it, but this sounds doable for me and I’m definitely going to pass it along to her! Thanks for the recipe!


I'd love to hear from you!
