Superfoods are all the rage these days, with their magical properties they are to provide super health benefits which we normally don’t get from the kind of foods we eat everyday. With so much hype around these, when I came across Chia Seeds I was a bit skeptical in trying them out but then Chia Pudding was something that made me try it. In which I was only concentrating on the pudding part of it.
And I was surprised at how amazing this pudding turned out to be, it was not only filling it tasted great too and these little seeds became my best-friends since then. I’m a kind of person who skips breakfast easily, that’s one bad habit that I have and on days when I do have breakfast its only a glass of milk, which doesn’t keep you filled for a good 5-6 hours.

It’s summer season and my favorite fruit Peaches are available so these had to be used in this pudding. Like I used my favorite fruit in it, you can use your favorite fruit bananas, strawberries, mangoes or any other fruit and believe me you’ll love this pudding as much as I did.
Prepared with only 5 ingredients, requires 2-3 minutes preps, make ahead (overnight) and enjoy the next day. Its the best thing to have in breakfast and for people like me who skip breakfast, it’ll make you have breakfast everyday. It’s that good. It’ll keep you filled for 5-6 hours easily, will give you an energy boost and is an easy way to boost your fiber and omega-3 intake too. It’s really good for weight-watchers and is an ultimate food for dieters and people who want to lose weight. Just sprinkle some over the salad, add in a soup, make a pudding and eat it in whatever way you like.
Prepare it, try it and enjoy the creamy, healthy, delicious Chia Pudding with your favorite fruits. You can also check out this post for another superfood that I tried and absolutely loved.

I love cold chia seeds with milk and honey. So refreshing! I've gotta try it with yoghurt and peaches. Looks delicious.
I've eaten store bought peach yogurt with Chia seeds for breakfast and it keeps me really full, but i love your take on it.
I'd love to try out chia seeds but I'm worried I won't like the texture. And you're right, it seems like EVERYTHING is a superfood now!
It's really good and I didn't know peaches help fight cancer, thanks for sharing this info 🙂
I'm sure you'll love this version too 🙂
Thanks Ruku 🙂
If you use the milled ones, the texture is somewhat like oats so you might like that.
That looks and sounds delicious! Will have to try it
Just read an article about chia seeds and their benefits the other day. I have never personally tried it, but i often use tukmaria seeds which is good as well in milk recipes
