Chia seed pudding is light, refreshing, and totally delicious! I love how easy it is to make and how yummy it is on it’s own or mixed with other foods. I personally love mixing a scoop together with my smoothies or my oatmeal.
The chia seeds are nutrient-dense and contain a great variety of vitamins and minerals. Soaking the chia seeds in plant-based milk also relays additional nutrients. It is also a great way to get a little hydrating boost! Mix in some maple syrup or a little organic sugar to sweeten the pudding aw well as some natural food coloring for a pop of color!
Chia Seed Pudding Ingredients
- 1 cup plant-based milk (I usually use almond milk)*
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- Optional 1/2 tsp of spirulina powder or dragon fruit powder for a boost of nutrients and a pop of color
Directions and Recipe Notes
Add your chia seeds and nut milk to a container (I like using a mason jar and lid) and mix really well.
Refrigerate the mixture for about half of an hour, remove from the fridge and mix again. Pop it back in the fridge for a few hours until the chia seeds absorb the almond milk and a thick, pudding-like consistency has formed.
You can enjoy your chia pudding on its own, with fresh fruit, or mixed into your smoothies or oatmeal. For an extra pop of color and boost of nutrients, add a scoop of spirulina powder!
*You can easily change your chia seed to nut milk ratio to make it more or less thick.
