Recipe notes and tips

  • Use a good quality liquid. The liquid you use will affect the taste and texture of your chia pudding. For a creamier pudding, you can use full-fat coconut milk or almond milk. For a lighter option, you can use regular or low-fat milk.
  • Mix the chia seeds well. Chia seeds tend to clump together, so it’s important to mix them well with the liquid. You can use a whisk or fork to thoroughly mix the seeds and avoid any clumps.
  • Let it sit for at least 30 minutes. After you mix the chia seeds and liquid together, let the mixture sit for at least 30 minutes so that the seeds can absorb the liquid and expand. For best results, you can let it sit in the fridge overnight.
  • Customize with your favorite flavors. Chia pudding is very versatile and can be customized to your liking. You can add sweeteners such as honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar, and flavorings such as vanilla extract, cocoa powder, or matcha powder. You can also top it with your favorite fruits, nuts, or seeds.
