Chocolate Chia Pudding

Posted February 10, 2015 in chocolate, self-love, Self-Love February and 6 more


Chia pudding is one of my fave sweet treats! It's super easy to whip together, it's delicious and it's full of nutrients.

Chia seeds are full of fiber, antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids. What's better than satisfying your sweet tooth and nourishing your body?

I usually just throw together some almond milk, chia seeds and a natural sweetener, but I decided to make a chocolate version to satisfy my chocolate cravings.

It was delicious!

Chia pudding is one of my favorite sweet snacks. I always crave a little sweet treat in the afternoons, and a bowl of chia pudding always satisfies my sweet tooth.

Chia seeds are packed full of fiber, antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, so I'm also getting a nutritious little snack.

I'm currently obsessed with berries. Berries are finally flavorful and affordable enough to buy, so I've been buying them all!

Cucumber Mint Chia Water

Posted June 15, 2015 in chia seeds, Cucumber Mint Chia Water, summer and 5 more

When the BF and I were in Colorado for Bolder Boulder, we ate at Lyfe Kitchen in Boulder on Pearl Street. I ordered Ginger Mint Chia Water, and my life was changed.

It was so refreshing, and had my love - chia seeds.

I eat chia seeds every single day. The BF couldn't believe when I ran out of the giant container of chia seeds from Costco. I can't help myself. And it's not like I ate a bulk container of Oreos!

Chia seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and are super hydrating because they absorb tons of water. They also contain fiber, protein, calcium, magnesium and other nutrients.

Chocolate Superfood Snack Balls

Posted July 28, 2015 in snack balls, healthy eating, healthy living and 8 more


I created another snack ball recipe! I'm created quite the collection of these recipes here on Sweet Success.

Cashew Cookie Balls

Pre-Workout Energy Balls

Post-Workout Vanilla Protein Balls

I love making energy balls or snack balls because they're the perfect little snack before or after workouts, or to satisfy my sweet tooth. For me, they take the place of store-bought bars. While I do think there are some great snack bars out there (KIND and Larabars are my faves), I do think it's more cost effective to make your own.

I usually throw together snack balls with the ingredients I have on hand. For these Chocolate Superfood Balls, I got the bright idea to throw all of my favorite superfoods together to create a nutrient-dense snack ball that would satisfy my sweet cravings.

Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding Parfait

Posted September 30, 2015 in Pumpkin, Fall, recipe and 9 more


I recently made one of my favorite recipes that I created last fall - Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding. It's so delicious, and very pumpkin pie-like.

But I realized it could be even more like pumpkin pie if it had whipped cream on top! My whipped cream addition turned into the perfect little fall dessert that will satisfy your craving for pumpkin pie, but without tons of sugar.

Vanilla Almond Chia Pudding

Posted February 4, 2016 in chia pudding, snacking, healthy recipes and 5 more

One of my favorite sweet snacks is chia pudding. It's delicious, filling and full of nutrition. 

Chia seeds are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fiber and calcium. I put chia seeds in my morning oats, in overnight oats, in smoothies, in pancakes, in yogurt and on salads. You can also add them to muffins, breads or cookies when you are baking. 

This chia pudding is incredibly delicious. I sweetened it with dates and honey, and added some oats for a little extra staying power. 

This is the perfect snack for an afternoon sweet tooth/energy boost!

Chia water has been my favorite drink this summer. It's super simple to make, tastes delicious and gives you a natural energy boost. 

I discovered chia water last summer during a trip to Boulder, Colorado. I ordered a Ginger Mint Chia Water at Lyfe Kitchen on Pearl Street. I was immediately obsessed, and knew I could recreate it at home (for a fraction of the cost of a restaurant version).

Chia seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and are super hydrating because they absorb tons of water. They also contain fiber, protein, calcium, magnesium and other nutrients. Chia seeds are also said to give you an energy boost.

When chia seeds are soaked in a liquid, a gelatinous coating forms around the seed. This makes the seeds easy to swallow. But if you have texture issues, you may not be a fan of chia water. Just a warning.

One of my favorite things about summer is fresh berries. They're so flavorful this time of year. 

On Sundays, I like to whip up a batch of chia pudding so that I have healthy snacks throughout the week. 

Because it's summer and I'm obsessed with berries, I added strawberries, blueberries and raspberries to my usual chia pudding recipe, and the result was this beautifully colored, delicious tasting summery chia pudding.
