how to make

ONE: I personally love using these meal prep containers, but you can also use any type of bowl or container that has a lid. First add in the chia seeds then the almond milk. Mix until well combined and add in the sweetener and mix once more.

TWO: Add in the toppings to the other sections, cover and store in the fridge for a minimum or 1 hour or overnight.

Tips and tricks

Stir the chia seeds with the almond milk two separate times to ensure they are well mixed together and no separation occurs.

Store toppings separately from the chia seeds for best results.

The ratio for chia seeds to almond milk really matters, I have found that 2 tbsp with 1/2 cup of almond milk is a great meal serving.

If your chia seed pudding does clump together, just keep mixing with a spoon to break them apart. You can also add a splash more of milk if needed.

How to serve and store

Serve this Single Serve Chia Pudding with your favorite toppings, on smoothie bowls, in yogurt, oatmeal or just on it’s own for a great breakfast, snack or dessert.

Store it in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy within 3-5 days.

Taste and Texture

The matcha chia pudding has a slight earthy taste but is also the perfectly lightly sweetened. You can also add in more sweetener if you prefer.

Chocolate chia pudding is rich in chocolate flavor but also perfectly sweet.

Simple vanilla chia pudding is subtly sweet, light and refreshing.

The texture of chia pudding is almost gel like with the texture of small beads fro the chia seeds. I personally think it goes down smoothly. However, if you don’t love the texture of chia pudding you can simple blend it and it will be much more like traditional pudding.

My Favorite Containers For Overnight Oats

These are the jars that are shown in the photos, they are spice jars, but work great for overnight oats.

Alternatively, you can also use weck jarsmason jarsthese glass jars with plastic lids, or these glass jars with a bamboo lids.
