Chia puddings make a great, easy and nutritious breakfast or snack. They can be prepared in less than five minutes and are packed with nutrients. This Orange Creamsicle Chia Pudding is the perfect summer flavor. It makes a healthy breakfast or snack that is balanced with protein, healthy fat, and fiber.
What You’ll Need to Make Orange Creamsicle Chia Pudding:
Chia Seeds: You can’t make a chia pudding without chia seeds! Chia seeds are an incredibly nutrient-dense food. They are rich in fiber and also contain protein, fat, and vitamins and minerals.
Vanilla Protein Powder: The protein powder gives the chia pudding a vanilla flavor and adds protein, which makes it a more satiating meal. Be sure to use a gluten free and/or dairy free protein powder if you need to make this recipe gluten free and/or dairy free.
Oat Milk: I used oat milk, but you can use any milk based on your preference. Look for an unsweetened variety if that’s available to you.
Sweetener: You will need a little bit of honey or date syrup to sweeten the chia pudding.
Mandarins: Fresh mandarins give this chia pudding a fresh and delicious flavor.
