Just wanted to let you know that my friends over at Better Body Foods are sponsoring this minty-fresh post!
This mint chia pudding recipe has a no-bake, gluten free brownie bottom! It’s only 6 ingredients and is a healthy, paleo and vegan friendly make-ahead breakfast! Perfect for Christmas morning!
Don’t mind me while I just here and scoop my down through the sweet-minty-fresh layer of creamy, chia pudding and swirl my spoon down through the rich, chocolaty gluten free brownie bottom.
Actually, you should mind me. Because did you READ that sentence? I mean – HELLO – Morning-life-breakfast-changing-you’re-gonna-love-it-recipe alert x 12 goin’ on here 2DAY peeps!
But first off, Chia pudding: Where have you been ALL MY 25 years of LIFE?
I know we ate pumpkin pie chia pudding awhile back, but – honest moment – that is, and STILL WAS, my only chia pudding experience up until THISSSSSS DATE. Right here. This one. The one that you’re reading this on.
And you’re all “Oh Taylor, I’ve been eating chia pudding since I could walk because I am so ultra-trendy and hip and cool” I can feel your elitist-chia ways coming through my screen.
That might be a slight exaggeration. BUT FOR SERIOUS. I’ve been seeing all you peeps burying your faces in bowls of gorgeous superfood goodness on Instagram almost EVERY.SINGLE.DAY, and I was all like “I’m just over here eating my healthy cinnamon roll protein oatmeal,” thinking that you guys were missing OUT.
Until chia pudding did this magical thing where it combined with a paleo brownie bottom on my spoon and swirled around into the fudgiest, smoooothest breakfast that I could only imagine in my DREAM LIFE.
And now it’s real. Hold me.
Uhmmm, secret: it’s also only 6 ingredients, NO BAKE, ready in about –359043 seconds (read: 5 minutes. Same diff) and paleo AND vegan friendly.
Plus avocado. Again. Always avocado. Creamy, heart healthy avocado has been making its way into all the mint chocolate things lately. Even a gluten free chocolate cake isn’t safe. I can’t tell you that I obsess over avocado and then only use it in 1 recipe right? I am all about being AUTHENTIC. So avocado mint ALL THE THINGS I say!
You understand me. We be LIKE DIS.
Ch-ch-ch-chia time! Just like the Paleo Pecan Pie Bars, Better Body Foods is bringing back the healthy-holiday treats today! Today’s go-to ingredient, jam-packed with glowy-health goodness, is their crunchy little bites of superfood deliciousness in the form of chia seeds. I also snuck some perfectly sweet and sticky Agave in this breakfast that you already know you love because BROWNIES for breakfast yes please always okay YUM.
Hi, I’m Taylor and I enjoy long walks in the park and run on sentences.
I also really enjoy putting my hungry-healthy-food-loving-face RIGHT up inside a layer of thick chia pudding and munchin’ my way down to the chocolatey finish when I roll out of bed in the morning.
Major BROWNIE points (pun VERY much intended) for chocolate in the morning. Liiike, 3 gold stars guys.
It’s a big deal.
In a little cup.
That takes even a littler amount of time to go from something dancing around your brain à something dancing around your taste buds, and sending you into the land of super YUM festive, Christmas-flavored treats.
4 words for you:
Minty. Fresh. Breakfast….
