Expert tips

  • Use fresh chia seeds. I sometimes hear from people that their chia seeds won’t swell when they add liquid. This may possibly be because of the brand of chia seeds, or because the chia seeds are stale. If you find this is the case you may need to buy some fresh chia seeds!
  • Add more liquid as needed. Depending on if you use full-fat coconut milk, light coconut milk, or another type of plant-based milk, you may need to add slightly more liquid if the pudding thickens too much. If needed, add an extra splash and mix it in.
  • Use decaf espresso if needed. If you’re sensitive to caffeine and plan on eating this chia pudding for a dessert in the evening, you can use decaf espresso.
