Chia Pudding & iHerb Snack Haul
This blog post has been sponsored by iHerb. All opinions are my own.
So, once a week I stock up on all my essential groceries but it’s not always easy to find healthy snacks and superfood items at affordable prices in traditional grocery stores. You guys know I love putting together overnight oats, chia pudding and afternoon yogurt/cottage cheese snacks. And that means always being stocked up on a variety of nuts, seeds, dried fruits, granola and loads of superfoods.
I just recently discovered iHerb and I was so excited that they carried all the snacking staples that I love to buy! Huge props to them because they:
- carry over 5,000 grocery items
- are a Google Trusted Store
- have a Customer Service team that provides support in 10 different languages!
- ship to over 160 countries – rejoice, international readers!
And talk about rejoicing, the first time I tried iHerb, I started using their easy Grocery categories to find items I normally shop for. This is what I found:
- A wide array of brands for each type of product – decisions, decisions!
- Hundreds of positive review for each product – yay, happy customers!
- Low prices compared to my traditional grocery store – more money for more snacks!
And THIS is what I got:
Essentially I got the perfect combination of healthy on-to-go snack items and ingredients to make my favorite healthy-on-to-go snack: chia pudding! It literally needs only 2 ingredients (1/4 cup of milk and 2 tablespoons of chia seeds) plus sweetener of your choice, if desired. I make mine in small mason jars and take them with me in my purse when I have a busy day running errands or running after my kids. It keeps me prepared and keeps my tummy happy when hunger strikes and I’m in the middle of soccer practice.
Check out these gorgeous to-go chia pudding snacks I made using the chia seeds I purchased from iHerb.
Chia Pudding Recipe
- 6 tbsp chia seeds
- 1½ cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
- 3 tsp honey (or other sweetener, optional)
- Divide ingredients into 3 mason jars and mix well. Let settle for 2-3 minutes then mix again very well until you see no clumping.
- Cover the jar and store in fridge overnight or for at least 2 hours.
- When you're ready to eat it, top with your favorite fruit and enjoy cold!
