Four Easy Chia Pudding Recipes

Hey there! Amanda Schreiber here from www.sweetbasilthyme.comMy blog Sweet Basil & Thyme is all about healthy(ish) recipes on a budget(ish), and Chia Pudding is a favorite of mine in both categories.

Her blog is all about healthy(ish) recipes on a budget(ish), and Chia Pudding is a favorite of hers in both categories. They are perfect for meal prep, easy to customize, and fit into most diets. They have two main ingredients:

Coconut Milk: rich in fiber, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. For Chia Pudding, make sure you get a canned coconut milk with guar gum (it helps the pudding gel together)! My favorite is Thai Kitchen Lite Coconut Milk, located in the Asain Food section.

Chia Seeds: healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium. You can usually buy in bulk, or find in the natural food section or the baking section!

The basic recipe is simple:

  1. Combine one can of coconut milk and ½ cup of chia seeds.
  2. Mix well, until chia seeds are fully incorporated.
  3. Refrigerate for about 8 hours (or overnight!) until chia seeds have expanded and pudding has gelled.
  4. For best results, stir about an hour before eating to have the best ratio of chia seeds and pudding.
  5. Enjoy! This recipe serves two.

You can use this basic recipe as add your own flavors, or check out some of my favorites below!

Raspberry Chia Pudding

Mash a few fresh or frozen raspberries before refrigerating. Top with more raspberries, almonds, orange zest, and a touch of honey!

Matcha Green Tea Chia Pudding

Add 1 teaspoon of matcha green tea powder and 1 teaspoon of your favorite sweetener (honey, brown sugar, or maple syrup all work well!) before refrigerating. Top with almonds!

Orange Creamsicle Chia Pudding

Add ¼ cup of orange juice before refrigerating. Top with fresh oranges and orange zest!

Pumpkin Chia Pudding

You only use one cup (instead of one can) of coconut milk in this recipe! Combine one cup of coconut milk, 1 can of pure pumpkin puree, ½ cup of chia seeds, 1 teaspoon of pumpkin spice seasoning. Refrigerate for 8 hours (or overnight!). Top with dates, maple syrups, and a little brown sugar!
