Tips

Once you have combined chia seeds, oats, skyr, and raspberries, make sure to mix everything thoroughly to ensure the chia seeds are evenly dispersed. When combined with liquid, they absorb moisture and expand, creating a pudding-like consistency. However, if unevenly dispersed, they may clump together, resulting in an uneven texture.

Tips

A mason jar is perfect for making and storing overnight chia pudding. These jars are portable, seal tightly, and make it easy to mix and layer the ingredients. You can mix everything directly in the jar due to the wide mouth, and the tight seal keeps the pudding fresh. They are great for on-the-go breakfasts and make for a visually appealing presentation if you plan to enjoy the chia pudding directly from the jar.

Tips

To save time, consider doubling or tripling the recipe. This allows you to make a large portion that will last for several days. Alternatively, you can portion out the pudding into individual servings to have a quick and wholesome meal option throughout the week.

Save time by preparing in advance

Preparing chia pudding in advance is a convenient way to have a delicious meal ready when you need it. One option is to make it the night before. Follow the preparation instructions and leave it in the fridge overnight. As the chia seeds absorb the liquid, they create a creamy texture. By the time you wake up, your pudding will be ready to enjoy. Alternatively, you can prepare the chia in the morning to enjoy it as an afternoon snack.

Remember that when adding toppings like granola, it is best to do so right before serving. This helps maintain the texture and flavour. Make sure to thoroughly mix the chia pudding before adding the crunchy toppings, ensuring that everything is well-incorporated and smooth.

Use your favourite berries

Let your creativity run wild and have fun experimenting with your favourite berries in chia pudding. Whether you are into the sweet goodness of strawberries, the tangy kick of blueberries, or the burst of flavour from raspberries, adding them to chia will make it even more delicious. You can also mix and match berries for a tasty blend of flavours.
