Nutrition Notes

One serving of this chia pudding provides 235 calories with 15 grams of carbohydrates, 16 grams of fat and 7 grams of protein. You’ll also be getting 13 grams of dietary fibre and about 30% of your daily iron and calcium needs.

This does not include any toppings so you’ll have to adjust that depending on what you add. If you top the pudding with 1 tbsp of almond butter, 1/2 cup of fresh berries and 2 tsp of cacao nibs, the entire dish will be 400 calories with 30 grams of carbs, 27 grams of fat and 11 grams of protein with 18 grams of fibre.
