Essential Chia Pudding

Essential Chia Pudding

This chia pudding is a great oatmeal alternative for balanced blood sugar in the morning. Make it ahead for an easy on-the-go option. For an extra protein boost, add a scoop of collagen protein powder.

Essential Chia Pudding



1 can organic culinary grade light coconut milk
OR 1.5 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk of choice
1/3 cup chia seeds
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
small pinch sea salt


  • Whisk all ingredients together. Let sit 5 minutes, then stir again making sure the chia seeds don't clump together. Store covered in the fridge for at least one hour until set. Serve chilled.

  • The pudding will keep for at least 2-3 days in the fridge. See topping ideas below. 

  • NOTE: If the pudding becomes too thick, stir in several splashes of nut milk or coconut water to thin. I find the texture is very personal, and it’s easy to add more liquid once set.
