If you’re in the Minneapolis area I also have a Mother Daughter Yoga & Brunch event I’m hosting at Athleta and would love to have you join us, message me for details!

One of my favorite activities to do with my girls in the spring is go to the Farmer’s Market and garden outside. I use to do both with my mother and grandmother and have so many wonderful memories. Both of my girls also have been lucky enough to do both with my mother and grandmother, so 4 generations all enjoying this tradition together.

These Chai Chocolate Chia Flower Pudding Pots are a perfect to make for mom before a trip to the farmers market or gardening, or if you’re going to grab food there even a snack. Really there isn’t a wrong time to enjoy this one. It makes a quick and easy grab and go breakfast with only minutes of prep at night and then a couple minutes to make pretty in the morning. So simple and beautiful perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch as well.

This one is perfect for little ones as all they need to do is stir chia seeds with chai, or chai concentrate and non dairy milk, and put it in the refrigerator to magically turn into a delicious pudding in the morning. Put into a jar, or keep it in the jar you made it in, and top with chopped chocolate, cacao powder, and a pretty edible flower.

With the weather here my gardens haven’t been planted so we had to buy flowers so a tip, buy an orchid (Trader Joe’s always has a great selection and wonderful prices) and pick a flower off the plant for these Chai Chocolate Chia Flower Pudding Pots and then give mom the orchid plant! What mom doesn’t love flowers? And chocolate?!

Aside from being pretty and delicious this Chai Chocolate Chia Flower Pudding Pot packs healthy nutrition. Chia Seeds are loaded with omega fats, protein, antioxidants and fiber. They are a great source of healthy essential fatty acids, eight times more than salmon! They’re also one of the most digestible plant proteins. The little seeds are also packed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants .Chia is the Maya word for strength and it’s so fitting. If you’re looking for a healthy breakfast that will keep you full until lunch try chia seeds! You’re be surprised at how filling they are and they might become one of you favorite new healthy “superfoods”. Cacao is full of minerals and antioxidants and good for stress reduction, energy, and immunity.

If your mom isn’t a chai fan or kids want to enjoy this one with mom add a little more cacao to the chia pudding and omit the chai. I will note variations in the notes below in the recipe.

If you’re here for Meatless Monday, I look forward to seeing what’s happening in your kitchen and hope you link up with me and my co-host Deborah. I also hope you check out and are inspired by the recipes linked up below.

Don’t forget to check out the giveaways going on over on Instagram the next two weeks! Come back later this week for the second recipe and pairing in this series of 4. Also we’d love to know what your favorite activity to do with your mom is or what you’re doing for Mother’s Day!

Recipe Notes

For non dairy milk when using chai concentrate we like Ripple for added protein and thickness or an unsweetened thicker almond or coconut milk, adding stevia to taste.
For non chai version use 1 cup of non dairy milk (Ripple for thick and creamy with plant protein or a thicker milk), add in 1 tablespoon of cacao powder, and sweetener to taste for a chocolate version.
To make enjoy for 2 of the small Weck tulip jars shown we make a batch and a half and divide into 2 servings.
