Yummy Non-Dairy Breakfast – Chia and Fruit Bowl

Updated: Jul 1

Shelby here, with a recipe for a delicious non-dairy breakfast that might replace your morning yogurt!  I have been trying to cut down on the amount of dairy I eat.  I am not a crazy person that is completely eliminating it from my diet (I love cheese way too much for that), but I am looking for subtle ways to cut down.  I brought my own non-dairy creamer into work to put in my coffee.  And because I frequent my favorite neighborhood joint for yogurt and granola a little to often, so I am trying to be frugal by making chia pudding bowls at home.  (It has a similar consistency to yogurt).

All you need is a few ingredients.  Mix four tablespoons chia seeds with 3/4 cup coconut milk, 1/4 cup coconut juice, and 1/8 teaspoon of almond or vanilla extract.  Stir well and put it in the fridge overnight.  In the morning the chia seeds will have expanded and created a pudding consistency.  I top mine with fresh fruit and sometimes raw coconut or nuts.  Be sure to add the toppings last, after the chia pudding has set overnight.

I started adding chia seeds to my diet many years ago, before it was so popular and every Pinterest recipe featured it!  Chia is a wonder food that provides protein, fiber, and good fats.  In addition to chia pudding I also add chia seeds to my smoothies or I sprinkle it on toast with almond butter and honey (YUM!).

I am curious if there are other non-dairy recipes you swear by – please share in the comments!
