So, most days I sort of hate making breakfast. I feel like that breaks a major food blogger rule, but it’s true. I mean, I meet all of the other “requirements” – I adore avocados, will eat anything fermented (hello kombucha & kimchee), am a freak for veggies…but I just can’t get excited about making breakfast in the morning.

Since I’ve started this whole working from home thing I’m trying to come up with a good routine. As someone who isn’t an early riser, sometimes I feel like I have to get out of bed, pour some coffee and quick sit down and fire up my laptop. Sure – could I actually make a gorgeous breakfast every day? Yep. Do I want to? Nope.

So, that’s where meal prep comes into play. I’ve found I have to be more on top of my game while working from home. If I rely on myself to cook each meal as it comes, I may end up skipping and reaching for the whole bag of chips and salsa later. I am undoubtedly a lazy cook, sometimes.

Sooo chia pudding let’s talk about it. Because it’s GREAT to prep. But personally, I like it cooked way better on the stovetop than the refrigerator method. So, that’s what I’m showing you how to do today. If you love it, check out my Stovetop Tropical Chia Seed Pudding, too. I made that earlier in the year and this is super similar! Alrighty then, friends…

Paleo Lemon Blueberry Chia PuddingLet’s get to it!

Paleo Lemon Blueberry Chia Pudding

WHAT YOU’LL NEED (increments below in the printout):

Chia seeds

Coconut milk – I like full fat but you can do lite

Blueberries

Lemon

Raw honey – you can do maple syrup, I just dig the honey and lemon together

Sea salt

Optional – blueberries and coconut flakes for topping

Paleo Lemon Blueberry Chia PuddingWHAT YOU’LL DO:

Place a saucepan over medium heat and add the blueberries. Allow them to roll around over the heat for a minute or so so they burst more easily when cooked. Add the lemon juice, zest and coconut milk, sea salt and stir. Finally, add in the chia seeds and stir until the mixture thickens into a pudding-like state – around 8 minutes.

Serve warm or chill in the fridge for about 2 hours before serving if you like it cold. Add toppings if desired and dig in!

This keeps well for about a week and can be made in large batches!

    So some days I really don’t like making breakfast in the morning because of other obligations, but if there’s time in the morning I love to make a yogurt bowl or oatmeal in the fall/winter time. But other times, I just want a piece of toast so I can 100% relate to you not wanting to make breakfast. Prepping breakfast like overnight oats or chia pudding is so wonderful!

    I love to eat food made at home, so I try to make new things on holiday, Pudding is my favorite food. Today I’m very happy to get a Pudding recipe of a different flavor. Thank you so much.
