Almond Milk Chia Seed Pudding – with video

IMG_0079_2

I just want you to know how much I love this chia seed pudding.  I have loved tapioca pudding since I was little.  It gives me fond memories of visiting my Nan.   Chia seed pudding has a texture and taste very similar to tapioca and it is very good for you.

Chia seeds pack a powerful nutritional punch.  A few awesome things Chia seeds contain are protein, fibre, calcium, and Omega 3s.  Here is the link to the video I made when I was making it one morning.  Low tech.. But you get the point.

Almond Milk Chia Seed Pudding

  • Servings: 3-4
  • Time: 5mins
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print
  • 2.5 cups of almond milk (nut milk or milk of your choosing)
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tsp of vanilla or seeds of 1 vanilla bean
  • 2 Tbsp sweetener of your choosing. I used maple syrup.
  •  *Optional – pinch of sea salt
  1. Measure and pour the milk into a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Add the chia seeds 1/4 cup at a time whisking as you do so.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until combined
  4. Let rest for 5-10 minutes as the chia seeds  will begin plumping up.  You will need to whisk/stir again as this prevents the chia seeds from settling and clumping on the bottom and the milk from rising to the top.
  5. Place into a covered container and set in the refrigerator overnight or for 6-8 hrs.
  6. Serve on its own or with chopped fresh fruit, nuts,  and/or granola.
  7. If you want a sweeter pudding add more sweetener of your choosing set to your taste.
  8. Enjoy!
