Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds have been a bit of an obsession lately; did you see my Blood Orange Chia Pudding?

I’ve been trying to eat healthier. Keyword = TRYING.

It’s not an easy task! I can be a picky eater!

I’ve been making green smoothies nonstop as well as these delicious baked oatmeal cups. But I need a variety to my breakfast routine. Hence, chia seeds.

Don’t get me wrong! There’s a time and a place to eat all the carbs for breakfast, cue my buttermilk waffles, liege waffles, and buttermilk pancakes.

For those of you looking to up your breakfast game, you’ve come to the right place.

Vegan Chia Pudding

We’ve established that this is a Keto chia pudding recipe, but it’s also paleo, gluten free, Whole30 compliant, and dairy free! You can also make this a sugar free chia pudding by simply omitting the honey.

To make this into a vegan chia pudding, simply eliminate the honey and replace it with a vegan sweetener such as agave or maple syrup.

Basically EVERYONE can eat this!

What’s so great about Chia seeds

Chia seeds are packed with nutrients and low in calories.

  • They’re a great source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
  • One ounce of chia seeds contains 4 grams of protein and 11 grams of fiber.
  • They contain carbohydrates, antioxidants, and calcium.

So, yes! This is an uber healthy chia seed pudding! Which is what we’re after… gotta eat healthy to feel happy, right?!

How to make Chia Pudding

  • In a large glass jar whisk the almond milk, honey, and vanilla extract.
  • Add the chia seeds to the jar and mix thoroughly.
  • Cover the glass jar and place the chia pudding in the refrigerator for 6 hours or overnight.
  • When ready to eat, remove the glass jar from the fridge, portion out the pudding and then top with granola, compote, fresh fruit, and/or additional sweetener.

Tip: Mixing thoroughly prevents the chia seeds from getting super clumpy. I made them once and only mixed the seeds half-heartedly; come the next morning it took a good minute or two of me mixing the pudding to get it into a nice even consistency.

The pudding still worked and tasted great. But to avoid any bumps in the process, mix the chia seeds into the liquid ingredients thoroughly, or until the seeds are evenly dispersed.
