Blueberry Chia Pudding

I realize that I just posted a chia pudding recipe last week, but, what can I say, I love it! The blueberry version I made last night is really pretty:

Blueberry Chia Pudding from Carrie on LivingThe only change I made to the original recipe was to add blueberries, half a frozen banana and a little more non-dairy milk to help blend it.

I think my next version will be chocolate and peanut butter chia pudding. Or, pumpkin pie chia pudding. Oh dear, I better stop.

I failed to include any photos in my last post of my trip to Seattle this past weekend. The weather was gorgeous and I went to two different farmers’ markets.

I took home two bags of organic apple-sweetened dried cranberries, 1 package of farro porridge, a bag of hazelnuts and memories with this sweet boy, my nephew:

It was impossible to get a photo with him, he’s on the move:

I can’t believe it’s been 3 years already since he was born:

I admire all you parents out there, it is not easy to balance all of life’s responsibilities and I can’t imagine doing so with a little one. My two fur-babies are enough trouble:

Now that summer is unofficially over, what is the favorite thing you did and what are you looking forward to doing during the fall?

    The blueberry chia pudding sounds great!

    Your nephew is so cute! It’s crazy how fast they grow–and every age is a different kind of fun!
    My favorite thing I did this summer was move to a new place (altho totally not related to the season), and I’m looking forward to going to florida this fall for a long weekend. I don’t mind fall, but it doesn’t do much for me :)

      Thanks Lisa, it is amazing how fast kids grow and the challenges, I mean fun, at each stage. :)

      Florida sounds fun! I think I like the changing seasons and the cooler weather (although it can be quite warm in the fall here in California) that comes with fall, not to mention butternut squash.

    I used your recipe and made this tonight. It turned out great! It was my first attempt at a chia pudding and I was impressed! I topped it with fresh blueberries and unsweentened coconut shreds. Yum.

    If I decide to blog about it, can I link to this recipe?

    Oh Carrie, I know now why I love your blog so much aside from the recipes, your babies! I have 10(!) of my own, all rescues! Now that’s a lot of furr babies!
