Basic Chia Seed Pudding

Vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, no bake/raw, oil-free, refined sugar-free, soy-free


Thrown together in just a couple minutes! Be sure to make this in advance (I like making it before bed) so it has time to thicken up. The thickness of the chia pudding will vary based on the kind of almond milk you use, so don’t worry if it looks a bit thick or thin when you first try it out. If your pudding is too thin you can add more chia seeds and let it sit for 30 minutes more; if it’s too thick, try adding a touch more almond milk.

3-3.5 cups (4-6 servings)
Soak time
2.5 hours or overnight

For the chia pudding:
  • 3 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1-3 tablespoons of pure maple syrup, to taste
Suggested toppings:
  • Granola
  • Fresh fruit
  • Coconut flakes
  • Pure maple syrup
  • Cinnamon
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Banana Soft Serve


  1. Whisk the almond milk, chia seeds, and sweetener together in a large bowl. Let sit for 5-10 minutes and then whisk again (this just helps prevent clumping).
  2. Cover and chill in the fridge for 2.5-3 hours, or overnight. It helps to stir the mixture every so often during this time, but don't worry if you can't.
  3. Stir well before serving. Portion into bowl(s) and add your desired toppings. Leftovers will keep in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.

Thank you so much for the recipe! I used vanilla almond milk and reduced the amount to 2 cups because I like the consistency a bit thicker. I also added some cinnamon to my mixture and let it sit overnight. Served with fresh fruit like bananas or strawberries this is amazing!

This was my first chia pudding! Fast, simple and nutritious. Made it with home made oat milk and topped with fresh strawberries – keep you really going! Will do again! Greetings from Finland 😃

Will this work with any other type of seeds?
