The Only Chia Pudding Recipe You Need

Got chia? Chia is a popular energy-packed superfood perfect for adding to smoothies, mixing into baked goods, oatmeal, or juice/kombucha. It’s one of the oldest forms of nutrition and was a staple of Mayan and Aztec diets. Chia absorbs liquid (up to 10X their dry weight), and the seeds swell into gel-like blobs very similar to miniature tapioca balls. It’s low-carb and has stellar doses of omega-3 fatty acids and protein which is often hard to come by in a plant-based food. It’s also high in fiber so the perfect simple ingredient for keeping your digestion on track.

I like to make a large batch of chia pudding and keep in the refrigerator at all times. It’s an ideal healthy staple because it’s tasty enough to eat for dessert, but also so healthy you could eat it for breakfast.

Here’s my go-to, classic vanilla recipe that I never get tired of eating. I love using coconut milk because it makes it really rich and creamy. And the best part: you can add different toppings or mix-ins to have it take on a totally different flavor each time.

WHAT YOU NEED

Very Vanilla Chia Pudding

  • 1½ cups coconut milk
  • 4 tablespoons chia seeds (this is my favorite brand)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp of maple syrup
  • fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, granola, yogurt, or any toppings of your choice

THE INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a bowl, except the toppings.
  2. Cover the bowl, and place in the fridge to let “gel” for at least 4 hours.
  3. Before eating, make sure the pudding has thickened and the chia seeds have gelled.
  4. Serve with toppings and enjoy!

For a different flavor, try adding cinnamon, peanut butter, unsweetened cocoa powder, or matcha powder to your chia recipe. The possibilities are endless! Hope you enjoy this healthy pudding that will add energy and wellness to your daily routine.

What is your favorite way to chia?
