Chia Seed Pudding

Written by Ashley Palmer | June 6, 2012

Chia seeds are my new favorite superfood! I like to add them to smoothies, homemade muffins, and my morning oatmeal. But recently, I’ve been loving this simple and satisfying chia seed pudding.

Rich in amino acids (it’s a complete protein!), zinc, fiber, calcium, and B vitamins, you can feel good about indulging in this treat. And, because chia seeds absorb 10 times their weight in water, you’ll feel fuller for a longer period of time, which is great if you’re trying to stop snacking on junk food between meals.

Chia seeds can be purchased in bulk online, and you can also find them in the bulk bins at most local and national health food stores.

Chia Seed Pudding
2 cups plain almond milk
3/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Pinch salt

  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl (or a container with a lid). Stir until the mixture begins to thicken (about 2 minutes).
  • Leave the bowl out and stir for 30 seconds every 10 minutes for an hour.
  • Place in the fridge overnight and allow to thicken even more.
  • Serve plain or topped with fruit, granola, or soy whipped cream.

Makes 4 to 6 servings

    me too very excited about this recipe… have so many chia seeds and finally a cool recipe to use them. I used rice coconut milk instead of almond milk as its what i had seems it going to be delicious.

    Hi, I made the same recipe yesterday, but to obtain a sweet taste, just added some agave-nectar to it. Very yummy….like a (better) Vanilla pudding!

    Chia seeds are the most perfect little food. They are so simple to prepare and consume. Even the least motivated person can just add a tablespoon of them to 8 ounces of water, juice, or milks (almond, oat, rice, hemp, cocont, etc.) let it stand for 10 or 15 minutes and then drink. Bingo: all of the Omega fatty acids your body needs!

    High in fiber, amino acids, and Omega fatty acids: one of Nature’s truly super foods.
