Have you tried chia pudding before?  If you are new to the chia pudding scene then today’s Overnight Vanilla Blackberry Chia Pudding is a great place to start.

By now most people have heard of chia seeds and might be incorporating them into smoothies, muffins or oatmeal.  Well chia pudding is another way you can enjoy chia seeds and is a great breakfast, snack or addition to smoothies.  Similar to overnight oatmeal you soak the chia seeds in some sort of liquid like almond milk, coconut milk, regular milk or soy and in the morning you dress it up with things like fruit, nuts, honey and maybe some cinnamon.

Overnight Blackberry Chia Pudding

We love blackberries in my house and eat them by the handful. I like to incorporate them into things like oatmeal, muffins and today’s Overnight Vanilla Blackberry Chia Pudding.  I can’t keep berries in my fridge for more than a day or two because my kids love them so much.  Not only do I like the way blackberries taste but I like the nutrition they add to our diet.

Here are a few reasons blackberries are a beneficial fruit to add to your diet {source}:

  • Blackberries owe their rich purple hue to their anthocyanin content, and these anthocyanins also offer cancer-fighting benefits. They act as antioxidants — chemicals that fight genetic mutations and cancer-causing tissue damage — and may have the ability to slow cancer cell growth, according to research.
  • One cup of blackberries provides almost 8 grams of fiber, which is 21 to 32 percent of the daily fiber recommendations for men and and women, respectively.
  • The vitamin A in blackberries also supports your digestive tract by helping maintain healthy mucous membranes, such as the tissues that line the inside of your mouth. Each cup of raw blackberries provide 308 IU of vitamin A. This is 13 percent of the daily vitamin A intake for women and 10 percent for men.
  • The vitamins C and K and the trace mineral manganese in blackberries all benefit your bones.

 

Overnight Vanilla Blackberry Chia Pudding Recipe

Blackberries aren’t the only ingredient in this recipe with a lot of health benefits.  Those little chia seeds might be small, but despite their small size, chia seeds are packed full of important nutrients {source}:

  • They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help to raise HDL cholesterol {the good cholesterol that helps protect against heart attack and stroke}.
  • Chia seeds are also rich in antioxidants and full of fiber, magnesium, zinc, iron and calcium.

I love raspberries. They don't last long enough for me to cook with them. I eat them plain or with a spoonful of Greek yogurt. Yum!
