This Chia Seed Pudding is creamy, filling and is packed with nutritions.
Wonder why these little chia seeds are becoming so popular? Chia seeds are full of fiber, protein, and vitamins. With chia seeds being full of fiber they can keep you full for a long time. They are most popular when making smoothies, puddings or sprinkling on top toasts.
I am so excited to say that I have finally figured out how to get the best Chia Seed consistency. If you have ever made Chia Seed Pudding before you might have noticed that it takes just the perfect amount of chia seed to milk ratio to get your chia seed constancy so it’s not too thick or runny.
I have found by adding a mashed ripe banana to your Chia Seed Pudding not only thickens your pudding but sweetens the Chia Seed Pudding without adding any additional sweetener. This is not only simple to do but only takes a couple minutes.
These seeds absorb with liquid forming this glention texture making a great it great for puddings. For this chia seed pudding I recommend soaking the chia seeds for at least 6 hours. I like to make my chia seed pudding before I go to bed and let it thicken overnight.
There are a couple of milk options that I recommend you use for this chia seed pudding. I use either coconut, almond, or cashew from the carton. There is also coconut milk from the can that you can buy but it is not my favorite choice when making Chia Seed Pudding, I prefer the coconut or almond milk from the carton.
This tropical pudding can eaten for breakfast, snack or a dessert. If you are always on the go I recommend making your Chia Seed Pudding in a jar with a lid. That way you can have it ready to grab from fridge, sprinkle some fruit on top and eat it on the go.
If you make this recipe I would love if you would snap a photo of your food and share it with me on instagram @itsallgoodvegan.com. I can’t wait to see how you like it!
Chia Seed Pudding
This Chia Seed Pudding is creamy, filling and is packed with nutrition.
- 1 ¼ cup of coconut milk. I prefer coconut milk or almond milk from the carton.
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- 1 medium banana, smashed
- Fruit, fresh or frozen
- Sliced almonds
- Shredded coconut
- In a mixing bowl add the coconut milk, chia seeds, mashed banana, and whisk ingredients together.
- Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours.
- Take chia pudding out and mix. Top chia seed pudding with optional fruit, granola, shredded coconut and sliced almonds.
- Layer your bowl with creative ingredients. I like to switch it up with homemade granola, cashew yogurt, shredded coconut, fruit compote and fresh fruit..
- Add a scoop of protein powder to your pudding. Not only will it increase your protein but add an extra flavor to your pudding.
- Don’t have fresh fruit? Frozen fruit taste as good.
