Lemon Chia Pudding

Lemon Pie Chia Pudding

Meal prepping food should be easy and the end result, irresistibly delicious. My lemon chia pudding ticks both those boxes. Topped with bright, homemade vegan lemon curd and tart berries, this divine make-ahead breakfast ticks all my boxes for a grab-and-go breakfast.

Jam jar breakfasts

There’s something so sneaky about “breakfast in a jar” – maybe it’s just me. But, nipping into the kitchen, grabbing a jam jar stuffed full of food from the fridge, and then running out the door for work knowing that I have breakfast quite literally in the bag.

Sometimes I make overnight oats and take them as a jam jar breakfast too – then I can choose to heat them up or have them cold, depending on how I feel. 90% of the time, I’ll heat them up in the microwave for about 60 – 90 seconds. If I have a chia seed pudding, like this one, I always eat it cold.

Chia pudding consistency

The recipe for my lemon chia pudding below makes a really thick chia pudding. It’s how I like them – but if you prefer a slightly less thick pudding then add a bit more dairy free milk (or even a touch of water).
