Chia Pudding with Homemade Blueberry Jam

These little chia pudding jars make the perfect grab and go breakfast. The recipe makes 4 200 ml jars of chia pudding, so that covers you for most of the work week! You can double the recipe to get you all the way through if you want too!

The jars were a great find- I picked them up from the dollar store! They came in a pack of 8 and were only $4. I love them because they’re they’re glass, which I always prefer to use over plastic.

Chia pudding is something I make regularly, but the jam is something new for me. I had never tried it before, and wanted a change to my usual chia breakfasts. It turned out to be super simple to make and was the perfect topping! The blueberries were a bit tart, so using a bit of honey thickened it up, and sweetened it up! If blueberries aren’t your thing, you can pretty much use any berry you like. I was going to do this with raspberries too, but just didn’t get around to it!
