kcal: Approximately 200 kcal per serving


  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (or sweetener of your choice)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Fresh berries, sliced fruits, or nuts for topping (optional)


  1. In a bowl, combine the chia seeds, almond milk, pure maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Stir well to ensure the chia seeds are evenly coated with the liquid.
  2. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4-6 hours. This allows the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and form a pudding-like consistency.
  3. After the chilling time, remove the bowl from the refrigerator and give the mixture a good stir to break up any clumps.

  5. If desired, top the pudding with fresh berries, sliced fruits, or nuts to add extra flavour and texture.
  6. Serve the Chia Seed Pudding immediately or return it to the refrigerator until ready to serve.
