This sweet potato chia pudding has quickly become my new favorite breakfast! Chia pudding is so versatile, you can literally make any flavor you like, and it only takes a few minutes to throw together. It’s full of nutrient dense ingredients to keep you full and satiated! Not to mention, they make the perfect on the go snack/breakfast prep idea!
I notice such a difference in my digestion when I include seeds in my diet. They are loaded with nutrients and healthy fats and are great to keep you regular, if you know what I mean.. 😉 Flax and chia are my personal favorites and this includes both – double whammy! I have loads of chia pudding recipes, but on cold mornings or dreary days, nothing is cozier than this jar, and the aroma of the cinnamon and sweet potato is the best.
What if I don’t like the texture of chia pudding?
There are to things you can do:
- Blend the pudding in a high-powered blender. Blending the pudding makes the texture so much smoother. Then pour it into your jar and refrigerate.
- You can also just completely sub the chia seeds with flax seeds. The texture will still be that of pudding but you won’t have the thicker chia seeds in it.
What you’ll need to make sweet potato chia pudding:
Canned Sweet Potato: If you’re not a sweet potato fan, you can sub pumpkin puree.
Maple Syrup: Maple and sweet potato are the perfect pairing
Coconut Milk: I like to use canned coconut milk because it makes it so thick and creamy, but you can use any plant milk!
Flax Seeds: I love flax seeds. They are so incredibly good for you.
Chia seeds: Chia seeds are nutrient powerhouses. I am obsessed with them, but I know not everyone can do the texture. Read the notes above if you want to sub them in this recipe.
How to make the pudding:
- Blend everything together until smooth. Taste & adjust as you’d like.
- Layer with vanilla yogurt (I use coconut) and whatever toppings you like.
- Pop in the fridge to set up a bit (or overnight) and enjoy!
What are some ideas for toppings?
I’m a texture girl, so I love topping mine with granola or chopped nuts. I have to have some crunch! You could also do chopped fruit, stewed apples, chocolate chips, coconut whip – the possibilities are endless. Have fun with it!
