Toss those pre-packaged pudding cups — these simple homemade chia seed pudding recipes are about to redefine your favorite snack-dessert for good.

When you make the switch from processed to homemade chia pudding, you’re not just losing the junk — you’re giving your health a huge boost. Rich in omega-3’s, antioxidants and fiber, chia seeds are an excellent way to keep your heart healthy (1). A little chia pudding every morning is also great for weight loss — surprisingly, those little chia seeds are super filling once they’ve soaked up about 12 times its weight in water! (2)

All you need is a little planning and patience, as you’ll have to wait at least two hours for the chia seeds to soak up enough liquid to give it that plump, jelly-like consistency you’re craving. But with these amazing flavors, like raspberry sherbet, figs and hazelnuts and layered almond and mocha, you’ll find that it’s well worth the wait. We promise you won’t get bored of these chia seed pudding recipes anytime soon!
