7. Chia Pudding – when you’re thinking easy low carbohydrate breakfast ideas and you don’t feel like eggs, then you can’t go past a convenient chia pudding, including an indulgentketo chocolate chia pudding.

Mix together the following delicious options:

  • Berries – strawberries, blueberries or raspberries
  • Full-Fat Yogurt – such as plain, natural or Greek yogurt
  • Cream, almond milk or coconut milk
  • Chia Seeds

Regarding quantities, it really depends on whether you’re counting your macros and also the flavor you’re after with your chia pudding.

I tend to add 2 teaspoons of chia seeds and a small handful of berries and then cream/yogurt until it’s the consistency I’m after.

Place all of the ingredients into a bowl, mix and enjoy. You can also prepare the chia pudding in advance the night before and have a thick pudding waiting for you to grab and go in the morning.
