Blueberry Peach Chia Bowls.
Frankly I’m in a super blueberry mood.
And it includes peaches! And one of my favorite breakfasts. Or snacks.
Chia pudding! I am no stranger to it but I tend to make it in jars and not bowls. This recipe allows you to eat it fairly quickly. It doesn’t have to sit overnight. You can eat it in about 20ish minutes or so, which is awesome for all you hangry morning people. Or those of you like me, who always forgets it make it the night before. Whomp whomp.
I have loved the blueberry peach combo FOREVER. You might remember that last year I made a blueberry peach pie that ended up in my recipe disasters, but only because it was so ugly. I plan on mastering it this year. And I’ve made a blueberry peach crisp, which after looking at pictures of? I’m craving like a crazy person. I think it’s one of the best fruit combos there is.
I’ve also made blueberry peach salsa that sits atop chicken tostadas. YES.
If you’re still unsure of chia pudding, and you’ve heard a million times that it’s like tapioca (which I’ve actually never had!), you can always blend it in a blender super quick before adding your toppings. I’ve done that with chocolate chia pudding before and it is dreamy. Almost mousse-like!
When drew me to this recipe was how freaking simple it was. The toppings add so much flavor and texture. It’s less trashed up than other chia puddings I’ve made but equally as delish and refreshing. It tastes just like SUMMER. I realize we are about a month out, but with temps in the 80s here, it’s hot and we’re ready.
AND. This recipe comes from what possibly might be the most brilliantly named cookbook, FOOD SWINGS. It’s by Jessica Seinfeld and isn’t the name just… perfect? I mean, basically all of my food choices are chosen around my mood. I can’t even begin to talk about how much I love this title and book. Last summer when I saw the title on Instagram for the first time, I was like I NEED THAT TITLE.
Pretty much describes my life.
Anyhoo! I hope this inspires some delicious weekday breakfast decisions! Of course, you can make it ahead of time. And add all sorts of fantastic fruits and treats. Like maybe… probably… white chocolate?
Blueberry Peach Chia Bowls

- 1 tablespoon sliced almonds
- handful fresh blueberries

This looks Ike a great breakfast and I’ve been meaning to pick up some chia seeds! Such an easy and nutritious way to thicken a smoothie, bowl of oatmeal, pudding, etc.
I’ve never had chia seeds. I feel like its time, lol. Im trying to find easy meals I can prep for a few days and grab from the fridge every day. I like the sound of night prepping the chia seeds.
Your photos are gorgeous!!!

oh you must try!
These bowls look amazing@ I wish I was having one for lunch today!
You must like cream of wheat, couscous, tapioca pudding, caviar or shad roe?
Very much like chia in milk dishes.
Food Swings is a brilliant title! I’ve always thought a good food book/blog/magazine name would be Moody Foodie. It would feature recipes based on moods. My only hang-up was that I’d probably base every recipe around chocolate and tacos because I’m never not in the mood for either of those.
haha i love that title! and TRUTH.
i recently fell in love with chia pudding (after an initial taste that did not go so well a few years back) and am now obsessed! it’s so delicious and healthy, and this recipe has such delicious flavors!! need to try adding sliced almonds to mine, i never thought to do so!
it is sooooo good.
I love chia seed pudding! This recipe looks very healthy and easy so I can’t wait to try it.

I love chia pudding and I am always sad when I forget to make it the night before, also I’m indecisive and need quick breakfast options so this is perfect!!
When the chia pudding trend started i wasn’t to much into it but then i try using almond milk (with the roasted taste) and is one of my favorites healthy snacks now.
Thanks for the recipe!

I am always looking for more chia seed recipes! Thank you!
thank you for this, I’ve never even had chia seeds that I can remember but have definitely had tapioca, so there! Looks wonderful and appreciate the nutritional value of chia!
Easy, healthy, pure fantastic!
So, mine is not NEARLY pretty enough to photograph, but I have to tell you how FREAKIN’ DELISH this is. Perfect for a hot day when you still need some breakfast!
Great article thanks for this
We love chia pudding in my house. I follow a similar recipe. I like mine just a little bit more creamy & thick, so I use 1/2 coconut cream to 1/2 milk. Typically coconut or almond. It is dreamy and crave worthy!!! ♥️♥️
