Avocado Breakfast Puddings

Purée an avocado, banana, or mango, and mix with chia seeds for a tropical, fresh breakfast. Or try a chai version. Make ahead and store in small canning jars for a healthy breakfast on the go.


Avocado-Banana-Orange Pudding

Makes two servings

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup cubed avocado
  • 6 ounces fresh orange or grapefruit juice
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds

Chai Chia Pudding

Makes two servings

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

  • 8 ounces cashew, coconut, or almond milk
  • 1/2 cup cubed avocado
  • 2 dates or a couple tablespoons of raisins
  • 2 tbs. maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds

Pour the chia seeds into individual jelly jars or small bowls. Blend the avocado with juice, coconut water, milk, or fruit purée and add sweeteners and flavors as you like. Pour over the chia seeds and cover the top with a circle cut from parchment paper to prevent discoloration. Cover with a lid and refrigerate overnight. The pudding will be thick and ready for breakfast the next morning.
