This chai latte chia pudding is loaded with warming spices, and makes a healthy and festive breakfast for snack!
I love the delicious warming flavours of chai. Especially with this cold weather, there’s nothing like the festive flavours of cinnamon, ginger and cloves.
They have honestly got to be the most comforting flavours out there. Whose with me?

This chai latte chia pudding is packed with all those yummy warming spices, black tea and almond milk, so it really does taste like a chai latte! (Don’t ask me how many times I mixed up the words “chai” and “chia” while writing this blog post…)
What’s great about this chia pudding is you get to enjoy those delicious chai latte flavours, but as a healthy breakfast or snack. (I’m a bit sick of overpriced expensive drinks from coffee shops that are secretly loaded with sugar and artificial ingredients…sorry Starbucks!)
I serve this chia pudding cold out of the fridge, but you could also warm it up in a pot if you’re looking for more of a warming winter breakfast. I haven’t tried warming this recipe, but I can imagine it would be delicious!
You can also play around with this recipe and add layers of your favourite fruits to make it into a parfait. I’d recommend adding some chopped up apples, bananas, pears, or figs for a delicious snack!
A few notes on this recipe:
I love using homemade almond milk in this recipe which gives the chia pudding a really rich and creamy taste. Store bought almond milk tends to be a little more watered down, but will also work just fine! If you want to make this chai latte chia pudding extra creamy, you can substitute coconut milk for almond milk in the recipe.
Any type of black tea will work well in this recipe. Earl Grey or even Orange Pekoe tea will work well…or even a chai tea mix! If you do use a chia tea mix, you may want to add a little bit less of the spice mix.
My favourite way to enjoy this chia pudding is to top it off with some coconut yogurt or coconut whip cream and a nice sprinkle of cinnamon. YUM!Print

If you don’t have all the spices available, you can try making this recipe using half chai tea and half almond milk as your base. Then just add the rest of the ingredients on the list and you’re good to go!
