The Super-Snack: Pistachio Chia Pudding

The Super-Snack: Pistachio Chia Pudding

Not all snacks are created equal. Some choices should absolutely be avoided. The following food options may sound great, but they are not snacks that should be a part of your mid-day meal. Instead, these foods are designed to make you feel better in the moment, but only leave you filled with regret. *A bag of chips *A bag of peanut M&M’s *A Diet Coke *A soft pretzel *Cheetos or cookies (fat-free or otherwise).

As a personal trainer I get asked all the time for healthy snack ideas. Like anyone, I go in phases focusing on 3-4 favorites that I rotate. My current obsession? Chia Pudding. I love it many different ways and it’s hard to go wrong with any variation, but try my recipe below with Pistachios. It’s super easy to make, convenient to transport and packs a nutritional punch!

There are many great health benefits to pistachios that will make you want to include them in your diet. They are incredibly rich in vitamin B6, and contain carotenoids that protect your skin from free radicals. They help lower “bad” cholesterol, plus they are high in antioxidants such as Vitamin A and E.

Despite their tiny size, chia seeds are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. They are loaded with fiber, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients. They are one of the leading super foods right now, and great for weight loss.

You’re going to love this pistachio chia pudding, and feel great after enjoying it! Here’s to rocking bikini bodies and a healthy lifestyle!


Serves 1 Calories: 270 Carbs: 25 g Protein: 16 g Sugar: 0

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk ( or unsweetened coconut milk)
  • 3-4 tbs organic chia seeds
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Dash of organic vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs shelled pistachios salted (or unsalted) chopped


Use a small mason jar and combine milk with chia seeds, cinnamon, & vanilla. Stir gently, cover with lid and let sit for about 5 minutes. Give the jar one more good shake so that the chia seeds evenly distribute in the milk. Then store in fridge for at least an hour, or even overnight. Once your pudding is ready add pistachios to the top and mix in for an added flavor and crunch!

Enjoy!  Have your own favorite snack? Share it below in the comments.
