What ingredients do I need for chia pudding

To start making chia pudding, you’ll need a medium bowl, unsweetened plant-based milk (almond milk, coconut milk, chia milk or any milk you love), a few tablespoons of chia seeds, your sweetener of choice, vanilla extract.

Sometimes I don’t add any sweetener and prefer to sweeten the pudding with toppings such as fresh low carb fruits, sugar-free chocolate chips or frozen berries.

Here are all the ingredients you’ll need:

  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1-2 tbsp Erythritol
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

To make thick and creamy pudding and get the perfect texture I like to use 3 tablespoons of chia seeds for every cup of milk.

Coconut milk is naturally sweet, so you don’t have to add too much sweetener. You can use a combo of canned creamy coconut milk (add about 2 heaping tablespoons) and carton coconut milk for a super creamy pudding.

Learn how to make easy and healthy chia pudding

There’s one trick I want to share with you: using warm milk will hydrate the chia seeds faster! This way you don’t have to wait at least four hours until it is ready. It will be still liquidy, but once the chia absorbs the liquids, it will become very creamy and tasty.

How to make chia pudding?

  1. When making chia pudding the essential part is incorporating the seeds into the milk. You should do this step twice: once in the beginning and once after 10 minutes. This will ensure that your pudding has no clumps and it’s creamy.
  2. Finally, transfer the chia pudding into individual servings small jars and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. It should be enough for the chia seeds to absorb the milk and the sweetener.

How long can I keep the chia pudding?

I usually love to prep it at night and enjoy it in the morning. It’s best to consume it within 2 days for the best flavor and freshness.

In our house, everyone loves chia pudding, so it never lasts for more than one day, but I suggest making the number of servings you plan on eating over 2 or 3 days.

Is chia pudding keto?

If you are wondering if you chia pudding is keto, the answer is YES!

Not only that chia seeds are a superfood, but they are recommended to eat in a keto diet because they are high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats.

These tiny seeds are packed with tons of nutrients: Calcium, Manganese, Magnesium, Phosphorus. They also contain zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), potassium, vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin B2.

Look at these fantastic macros: 1 oz (2 tablespoons) of chia seed contains:

  • Calories: 138 kcal
  • Fiber: 10 grams
  • Protein: 5 gram
  • Fat: 9 grams (5 grams are Omega-3s -> the stuff that’s good for you!)
