Vanilla Blackberry Chia Pudding {PALEO}

Monday, Monday!  Did you see that exclamation point there?  For a Monday?  Yes!!  The kiddos are back in school today; no snow day, no late start and I just had a great workout.  It is leg day.  I usually loathe leg day.  It’s hard and it hurts, and I feel like I have not seen as big of gains lifting legs as I have with other parts.  But today was great.  I met with my super star lifting buddy and we ran a cool 3.35 miles.  The weather was just right for us to be comfortable in tights and long-sleeve shirts, which is to say that it wasn’t freezing all of my runs in recent history!  Then we hit the weights ,worked hard, grunted and got it done; front squats, Romanian split lunges, dead-lifts.  Done!  Upon arriving home I filled my tummy with some chia pudding, in fact, I have the recipe right here for you.  Pretty cool, huh?

So here it is: Vanilla Blackberry Chia Pudding {PALEO}.

A good breakfast or snack option for the Paleo lifestyle.  This can be eaten on the go.

Vanilla Blackberry Chia Pudding {PALEO}

  • Servings: 1-2
  • Time: active time: 5 minutes, chill time: 3+ hours
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1 Tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup (more or less, to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds

Directions:

  1. Put all of the ingredients EXCEPT for the chia seeds in your blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour the mixture into one or two re-sealable glass jars.
  4. Add the chia seeds and shake well to mix.
  5. Chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  6. Breakfast is served!  Enjoy!

Notes:  This is great with fresh berries or other fruit.  I made a little berry parfait and topped it with my Maple Cinnamon Almonds.  So good!

Also, in case you needed another reason to try this recipe, did you know that blackberries are super high in antioxidants and they have anti-inflammatory benefits, too?  Lastly, Amy, I meant to ask you up for a post-work out snack, but my brain went to post-workout mush.  Tomorrow maybe?

Happy Monday everyone.

  1. What a wonderful recipe! I think this is on the menu tonight 😉 I have to ask, though, how did you make the recipe box? I’ve found ways to do it on WordPress dot org, but I can’t figure it out on WordPress dot com. Advice?

    • Heya Zambini! What a fun blog you’ve got going on. My recipe boxes are generated by shortcode. For example:

      [recipe title="Vanilla Blackberry Chia Pudding {PALEO}" servings="1-2" time="active time: 5 minutes, chill time: 3+ hours" difficulty="easy"]
      Ingredients, blah, blah, blah, Directions, blah, blah, blah.
      [/recipe]

      You can find the page I reference when generating the code at wordpress dot com, support, shortcodes, recipes.

      I hope that helps, please let me know if you have questions!

      Best,
      Aspen
