At Well+Good, we’re constantly coming across genius recipes—whether it’s on Instagram, in soon-to-be published cookbooks, or directly from buzzy food bloggers themselves. And we’re sharing, by spotlighting the most awesome recipe we’ve come across each week. Ready to get cooking? Check out this week’s pick, below!

For most people, mornings are pretty chaotic. Whether you squeeze in a workout or simply take five minutes to make your bed, there isn’t always time to whip up a healthy stack of pancakes or fancy takes on toast. The solution? Prepping breakfast in advance. Think of it as the grown-up version of that whole laying-your-clothes-out-the-night-before habit.

What better way to lure yourself out of bed than with something delicious awaiting you in your fridge? Enter, golden milk chia seed pudding. The trendy, Ayurveda-inspired take on the classic breakfast pudding is full of healthy fats (à la coconut milk) and anti-inflammatories like turmeric and ginger. Whether you have time to savor it at the breakfast table or pack it to eat on-the-go, you’ll be able to properly nourish yourself. (Bonus: No need to turn on the stovetop to heat up a mug of golden milk.)

This recipe comes from Jennie Miremadi, MS, nutritionist, holistic nutrition coach, and EFT practitioner, whose crash diet-free approach to eating embraces good-for-you fats, whole grains, and giving your body the nutrients it needs.

Scroll down for the golden milk chia seed pudding recipe that will transform your mornings.
