Chia seed pudding has become increasingly popular within the diabetes community as it has little impact on blood glucose, is easy to make, tasty, very customizable, and is a very low-cost breakfast or snack. Breakfast can often be the hardest meal of the day for people with diabetes. Starting every day in good control could be life-changing. A few weeks ago, the Steady Health team had a chia seed pudding taste test and voted for their favorite recipe!
Here’s the recipe:
- 1 cup of light coconut milk
- 4 tablespoons of chia seeds
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
Yup, that’s it! It’s that easy! Get your mason jars out and start filling them with chia seeds!
For the ingredients that we used, one of our Steady team members, who has type 1 diabetes, bolused for 20g of carbs for 1 cup of our chia seed pudding (this is what we estimated, may vary depending on the ingredient brand or product you buy). Check out their CGM data below!
