Lemon Meringue Chia Pudding

by Jill Dalton

Summer is the perfect time for Lemon Meringue. This is a Plant Based, refined sugar free lemon meringue pudding that gets me through my cravings for the lemon meringue pie that my mom used to make. This healthy pudding is great for a dessert or breakfast. You can add a dollop of coconut whipped cream if you really want to make it fancy. =)

I’m a fan of chia pudding! 🙂 It’s easy to make and flavor in so many different ways!

The lemon meringue flavor sounds so refreshing, especially for summer!

Awesome recipe! 🙂

Yummy yummy! I decided to turn mine into lemon cheesecake flavor so I added some cashews and lemon zest to the blender. Thank you for a delicious recipe!!

If I just have plain, unsweetened nut milk, how much vanilla do you think I need to add?

Looks delicious, but what is the merinque part of it? It looks more like lemon curd ….?

Could you pulverize the chia seeds to make a smoother pudding?

This is so yummy!! What a fabulous treat. Even made some for gifts in cute little mason jars.

Refreshing! Even with regular chia seeds it turned out great. I used coconut milk as the plant milk and it was sooo yummy! Would make again (and double it)!
