For the pudding:

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, or milk of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup, can use honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Optional Toppings:

  • Fresh fruit
  • Granola
  • Coconut
  • Nuts
  • Nut butter
  • Drizzle of maple syrup


  • Add the chia seeds to a jar. I recommend an 8 oz jar to leave room for toppings.
  • Pour the milk over the chia seeds. Add the maple syrup and vanilla extract. Stir well to combine.
  • Let sit for 15 minutes. Stir again until well combined and there is no clumping.
  • Cover the jar with a lid and store in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight. For best results, chill overnight so the pudding has enough time to thicken up.
  • When ready to eat, remove from the refrigerator and stir. If the pudding is too thick, you can add a splash of milk and stir again. Top with fresh fruit and other desired toppings. Enjoy!


This recipe makes 1 serving. If you want to double, triple, or quadruple the recipe for meal prep, you can! You can make the chia pudding in individual jars or make in a large bowl and then divide it into individual jars. Just make you stir well before putting in the fridge, so the pudding thickens. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
