A basic chia pudding recipe is as simple as mixing chia seeds and plant-based milk, letting it sit until it builds the gel-like consistency that gives pudding that amazing thick texture.
How to make Chia Pudding
You simply stir everything together and refrigerate until thick. The chia seeds soak up the liquid pretty quickly, but to get the gel-like consistency, you need to give the pudding some time.
I usually add the milk, let it sit for 5-10 minutes and stir to make sure the chia seeds aren’t clumping and then let it sit for half an hour. Another great option is to make it and let it sit in the fridge overnight.
The pudding will keep 4-5 days refrigerated, so feel free to make a larger batch and portion into individual jars ahead of time. This way, you can eat your chia pudding on the go.
