These Chia seed pudding’s seem to be the absolute craze right now don’t they? And its easy to see why! I have started experimenting with a few different recipes lately, and I found this one a winner for me! Its easy and quick to prepare. If you are like me and the mornings get a little hectic, trying to prepare breakfasts for 2 monkeys, getting dressed and ready for the day and find its after 10 and still have not had breakfast then this is a great solution as you prepare the pudding the night before, preferably when all kiddlets have gone to bed! Put it in the fridge, then you can pull it out in the morning and it’s ready to go! It’s simple, delicious and packed full of nutrition. what’s not to love?
Check out the recipe below and let me know how you like it, or share your favourite chia seed pudding with me in the comments.
Berries & Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding
1 cup Vanilla Almond Milk
2 Tbsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp Greek Yogurt
1 Teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 Cup Strawberries & 1/4 cup Raspberries
extra strawberries and raspberries for topping
In a blender, blend your almond milk, Greek yogurt, strawberries, raspberries & Vanilla extract.
whisk in your chia seeds then Pour your mixture into 4 separate serving glasses or jars. Leave in your fridge overnight to allow the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and create the pudding – like texture.
The next morning remove from the fridge and place remaining strawberries, raspberries and other topping you like over the top of your chia seed pudding.

So here’s to another week gone by, this is what I got up to last week!
Monday – Was a really nice day, did some washing in the morning, Timmy is in school, Carl is at work. My dad came by and we went out to lunch at a local pub. I had an AMAZING salad. I even treated myself to a little glass of wine. In the middle of the day!. why not? It was nice, me and dad got to catch up and chat away, we didn’t even realise we had been there for over 3 hours! It was close to 4pm by the time we left.
Tuesday – Timmy wanted a chill out day, so that’s what we did. Nothing exciting, just pottered around the house doing general house stuff. Timmy watched a bunch of TV and played games on my phone, this is now his new thing playing games on our phones. We went for our usual afternoon walk around the block. It only takes 20 minutes but it’s nice to get out of the house on day’s like this!
Wednesday – Carls day off. Was a busy one for me, I needed to go to the library and get some study done so I did that in the morning while Carl looked after the kiddies for a couple of hours. Came home and Timmy helped me wash the car, it wasn’t until the next day I realised what a bad job we had done… so will need doing again very soon! I rode my exercise bike, not for very long with Timmy around, but still managed to get some exercise done. Did another walk around the block with the kiddies while Carl went for his driving lesson. He booked his driving test for next week! Fingers crossed he passes, I can not wait for him to get his licence.
Thursday – Carl had appointments in Wollongong to get done for his visa, so we went there for the day. Before his appointments we went for lunch by the water at Bombora Seafood Restaurant. As I wasn’t allowed to wait for him in the waiting room, I waited in a nearby café and fed Timmy chocolates to keep him occupied while I had a coffee.
Friday – Timmy is in school, It was time for Elijah to get his 4month immunisation needles, so I had him booked in, I had myself also booked in for an appointment and my sister needed to see a doctor also. So was a long morning spent at the doctors. I worked on my blog post, got a post sent out about the Parental Stress Centre. And spent a lot of time online doing research, and studies stuff. I am currently studying a diploma in Childcare. Picked up Timmy from school and went around my dad’s house for a quick visit. Elijah is grumpy and not happy since getting his immunisations earlier, So not the most exciting Friday!
Saturday – Dropped kiddies off round Grandma’s for an hour or so while I went and got waxed. I had not had this done since before Elijah was born, so I was well over due! I will NOT be going back to ‘ Perfection nail & beauty clinic’ in Tahmoor. I have been there 2x before and they were OK, nothing special. However this time was different. Besides no one else being in their, I was made to wait 40 minutes before being shown a room, then made to wait another 10 minutes in the room! Then the lady waxed off half of my eyebrow. Seriously!. I now need to cover up with an eye pencil. They tried to tell me it was like that before I went in there! I think I would realise if I was missing half an eye brow. Then went home and Spent the rest of the day at home again, doing house work and playing with the kids. Timmy is getting really good these days at driving his truck around the backyard, he can now steer properly and goes really fast, little hoon!! It is super cute watching him.
Sunday – Its my 34th birthday! I woke up to Timmy opening my presents for me. I got some beautiful flowers from Carl and the kids and a couple of books, which I am looking forward to reading. I then went to lunch with the family at a local club. Was a nice day. Went back to my dad’s house where they did a cake and sang the worst rendition of “happy birthday” I have ever heard! Very funny! Then at night Carl came home at a decent time and we had pizza and a glass of bubbles. So a good finish to the day!
