So a lot of people have been requesting a simple and basic chia pudding recipe. So to keep things simple, here is my simple vanilla chia pudding recipe.
You’re going to laugh once you see how simple this recipe is. I make a batch of this weekly, and store it in the fridge in a large jar. This recipe only tastes about 3 minutes to make. (So no excuses not to make this one!)
Chia pudding makes a really great breakfast, snack, or dessert. It’s filling, loaded with omegas & protein, and since chia seeds expand in water, (10 x their size!) it will keep you feeling nice and full! I love topping my vanilla chia pudding with fresh fruits and my maple pecan granola. I’ll either serve it up in a bowl, or layer it in a jar and take it to go.
I also recommend you prepare this recipe the night before you want to eat it, and let it sit overnight in the fridge.
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
- Let sit for 2 minutes until it begins to gel, and then give it a good mix again with a fork or a whisk.
- Let sit for at least 1 hour before serving, or overnight in the fridge.
- Serve with fresh fruits, jams, or granola
*Really pressed for time and just can’t wait to eat your vanilla chia pudding? A little “hack” I discovered is preparing your chia in pot! Simply heat you almond milk on medium high heat, add your ingredients and stir. Bring down the heat and allow to simmer for a couple minutes. Your chia will turn into a warm porridge style pudding nice and quick!
