Lemony Yogurt Chia Pudding

Dr. Eliza Klearman | Vail Health Behavioral Health

This delicious recipe from Vail Health Behavioral Health's Dr. Eliza Klearman packs a lemony punch and makes for a super easy, go-to breakfast.


  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 cups milk of your choice
  • 2T honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Juice of 2 lemons (about 6T juice)
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • Toppings of your choice (fruit, nuts, seeds, coconut, cacao nibs, etc.)



  • Blend the yogurt, milk, honey, vanilla, and lemon juice in a blender.
  • Place two tablespoons of chia seeds in 4 separate bowls or jars (2T/ jar). I like using glass jars with lids so I can shake them up and then just grab a jar when I am ready to eat.
  • Divide your yogurt mixture into each of the jars and mix them well so that the chia seeds are distributed throughout the yogurt.
  • Put on the lids, give a good shake for extra measure, and put them in the fridge. They should sit for at least 6 hours before eating, just to let the chia seeds plump, which makes for a nice, thick chia pudding.
  • Top with whatever you want and enjoy!
