Enjoying a bowl of easy creamy acai chia pudding for breakfast

Made with only 4 ingredients, this Creamy Açai Chia Pudding is an absolute treat. I had this for breakfast the other day and felt like I was enjoying dessert for my first meal of the day.

With the weather warming up, chia pudding is becoming a favorite around our home. I usually like to mix together chia seeds with avocado, dairy-free milk, and some maple syrup for a quick and tasty breakfast the next day, unless I am enjoying a smoothie bowl.

But, recently I came across Sambazon Organic Açai Bowls in the frozen breakfast foods section at Publix and decided to elevate my chia game.

What are the ingredients to make this Creamy Açai Chia Pudding?

For this pudding, I used the following 4 ingredients:
• a Sambazon Organic Açai Bowl,
• some Ripple Dairy-Free Milk,
• maple syrup,
• and, chia seeds.

There have been times when I made this pudding and added in a splash of vanilla extract, almond extract, and a sprinkling of cinnamon – but these are optional add-ins.

I defrosted one Sambazon Organic Açai Bowl until it reached its liquid form. While I let it sit on my counter until it defrosted into a liquid, you can also defrost it quickly in your microwave. Just place the frozen Sambazon Organic Açai Bowl in your microwave (sans the wrapping) and microwave it for 20-30 seconds. Repeat until it is melted completely.

Then, I mixed the melted Sambazon Organic Açai Bowl contents together with some Ripple Dairy-Free Milk, maple syrup, and chia seeds. I set this aside in covered individual containers and the next morning, I had this delicious concoction to enjoy with my morning cup or two of coffee.

Why I Love this pudding:

There are so many reasons I love this pudding:

  1. It is absolutely delicious,
  2. It is dairy-free,
  3. It is plant-based,
  4. And, it is so incredibly easy to make!

I love that I can make this Açai Chia Pudding in about 5 minutes in the evening and set it aside to enjoy the next morning. It is the perfect grab-and-go breakfast or snack or even dessert.

If I have a bit of time in the morning, I will top this Açai Chia Pudding with some chopped fresh fruit and some nuts like Second Nature Medley nuts. 

However, if I am in a hurry, I spoon this into a mason jar and take it to work with me.

Sometimes, I double the quantity of ingredients and make a couple of extra bowls of this Açai Chia Pudding so my daughter and I can enjoy these for dessert.

What a fun (and easy) breakfast idea, Shashi - this is a great way to mix up the routine! Speaking of Publix, we just got back from Charleston, and I stopped in a Publix down there to pick up groceries for the week. Holy cow - I miss that store!! Either way, hope you gals are doing well!

Looks like the sort of pudding that I too would enjoy at Breakfast Shashi! I'd definitely recommend soaking the chia seeds overnight. I do that in my porridge at the moment and it makes all the difference. This is yummy! Hope you are well!
