Vanilla chia pudding is one of the easiest and most delicious things to make! I made enough to last for a few days with a variety of different toppings. Above, you can see some of the various ways I used mine. The chia seeds naturally help to create the pudding-like texture and gel everything together. I’ve tried the bulk chia seeds from Whole Foods as well as the pack from Trader Joe’s, and both work equally well. Here’s how I make mine!

You will need:

  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used vanilla soy milk, but you can use coconut milk or regular cow milk too)
  • 1/8 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • honey

Mix all of the chia seeds, milk, and vanilla into a bowl. Stir it up and put it in the fridge. After about an hour, open it up and stir again. You can let it sit a little while longer before spooning it out to eat.

I poured out a small amount into a jar and mixed in the honey to taste. This will all depend on how sweet you like yours. You can top with your favorite fruit, add a smoothie to it, or mix with yogurt and granola for a delicious combination!

You can save this in the fridge by covering tightly, and it should last for a few days. It might start to get clumpy, but just stir it around a bit and it should loosen up.
