Chia pudding could be the best thing thats ever happened to us! Why? Well, for starters, its extremely quick and easy to prepare. Furthermore, it is high in omega-3 fatty acids, delivers a massive amount of nutrients, and is packed with antioxidants. Chia seed pudding can be eaten for breakfast, as a snack, or for dessert — there is such versatility brought to the table! It’s the perfect recipe for you and your family, especially if you tend to be in a time crunch every morning.

Basic Chia Pudding


  • 2 cups non-dairy milk (coconut, cashew, or almond)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds


  1. Add all of the ingredients except for the chia seeds into a medium mixing bowl or blender pitcher.
  2. Whisk or blend the ingredients together until smooth.
  3. Whisk in the chia seeds.
  4. Pour chia seed mixture into a glass jar and transfer to the refrigerator to set for at least 6-8 hours. Overnight is best!

Helpful Hint: When making different flavors, be sure to add these ingredients into the liquid before whisking in the chia seeds. This will prevent the flavor add-ins from spreading out unevenly.
