This chai latte chia pudding is loaded with warming spices, and makes a healthy and festive breakfast for snack!
I love the delicious warming flavours of chai. Especially with this cold weather, theres nothing like the festive flavours of cinnamon, ginger and cloves. This chai latte chia pudding is packed with all those yummy warming spices, black tea, and almond milk, so it really does taste like a chai latte! (Don’t ask me how many times I mixed up the words “chai” and “chia” while writing this blog post…)
What’s great about this chia pudding is you get to enjoy those delicious chai latte flavours, but as a healthy breakfast or snack. (I’m a bit sick of overpriced expensive drinks from coffee shops that are secretly loaded with sugar and artificial ingredients, sorry Starbucks!) I serve this chia pudding cold out of the fridge, but you could also warm it up in a pot if your looking for more of a warming winter breakfast. I haven’t tried warming this recipe, but I can imagine it would be delicious!
You can also play around with this recipe and add layers of your favourite fruits to make it into a parfait. I’d recommend adding some chopped up apples, bananas, pears, or figs for a delicious snack!
