Coffee chia pudding ingredients

Ingredients for coffee chia pudding
  • Chia seeds: you can use white or black chia seeds. (These are both the same thing, just a different colour.
  • Light coconut milk: I like to use light coconut milk because it adds a creamy texture to the chia pudding. You can use any type of milk you like.
  • Coffee or espresso: you can use strongly brewed coffee or espresso in this recipe. Both work!
  • Maple syrup: to sweeten. You can use any sweetener you like.
  • Vanilla: just a hint of vanilla for flavour.

Can I make it with instant coffee?

Yes! If you prefer to make this recipe with instant coffee rather than brewed coffee, you can use 1 1/2 teaspoons of instant coffee and add an extra 1/4 cup of milk to the recipe.

How to make coffee chia pudding

Step 1

Add the chia seeds, milk, coffee, maple syrup and vanilla extract to a mixing bowl or a large jar.

Step 2

Whisk everything together until the mixture starts to thicken slightly. (This should take about a minute or so.) Then cover and place the chia pudding in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Step 3

Once the chia pudding has set in the fridge it should be a thick pudding-like texture. If you find the chia pudding has thickened too much, you can add a little bit more milk and stir it together.

How to store

Store this chia pudding in an airtight container in a jar in the fridge for up to 4 days. You can also store this chia pudding in individual jars to be ready in the morning to take on the go.

Tips for making coffee chia pudding

  • Prepare it the night before. If you’d like the chia pudding to be ready in the morning for breakfast make sure to prepare the chia pudding the evening before so it has time to set in the fridge.
  • Use strong brewed coffee. If using brewed coffee, you may want to make the coffee slightly stronger than you would if you were drinking it. This will give the chia pudding a rich coffee taste.
  • Make it keto. If you want to make keto coffee chia pudding, swap out the maple syrup for a sugar-free sweetener.
  • Make it high-protein. To add more protein to this chia pudding, you can add a scoop of your favourite protein powder to the recipe, or top the chia pudding with some yogurt.
