Berry compote is great for waffles, pancakes, french toast, ice cream, and most importantly, chia pudding! The list is endless for a fruit compote and it is so easy to make and store. It will last refrigerated in a closed container for up to a month. You can choose to sweeten it with honey, sugar, or go without sweetener for that tart fruit pop depending on the fruit used. Most times it will be sweet enough without an additional sweetener, it all just depends on individual taste preferences.
Chia pudding is loaded with antioxidants and is a great protein source. It is the perfect breakfast to keep you energized for the day and help you feel full. This means no more early crashes and potential weight loss! That’s a win win in my book!
I usually make my chia pudding for the week in a large mason jar and measure it out in the mornings or I will make an individual serving in smaller mason jars for the week. It just depends on my work week. If I am out of town I usually portion it out for my husband to grab and go to work. It keeps him on a healthier diet while I am away.
You can add what ever you want as toppings on a berry chia pudding. I will add extra fruit and nuts, sometimes shredded coconut, maybe a nut butter, I like almond butter or peanut butter. Personalizing your breakfast is super easy and can keep it from getting boring two days in to the week.
