In the dessert world, is there a more classic combination than lemon and poppy seed? Vanilla and chocolate may take the majority vote, but lemon and poppy seed is truly a great combination. Regarding this chia pudding, it is packed with incredible lemony flavor, poppy seeds, protein, healthy fats, and natural sugars. You can whip up this recipe in 15 minutes or less, place it in the fridge to set overnight, and then pull it out in the morning to enjoy as a healthy, filling breakfast.

The great thing about this chia pudding is that it only requires six ingredients. Chia seeds are the star of the show, and rightly so! They help to optimize digestive function and supply the body with a lot of omega-3 fatty acids, which benefit heart and brain health. The unique combination of healthy fats, fiber, and proteins in chia seeds makes them great to include in your breakfast because they help you satiate you. That means that enjoying chia pudding in the morning can help keep you full until lunch.

Although this recipes calls for homemade almond milk, you have the freedom to use the homemade nut or seed milk that you prefer. Homemade cashew milk, walnut milk, or even hemp seed milk can contribute to a creamy texture. If you want to go the full vegan route and abandon raw vegan (not endorsing this for cleansers), you can use oat milk or other store bought non-dairy milk. We would not use coconut milk, though.
