Chia Pudding Tips

All the exact steps are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post. First, here are some tips that will help you out. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments.

Use a Bowl With A Lid

Some mixing bowls come with lids. If you have one, use it. One of the steps in this recipe involves covering the pudding and refrigerating it overnight. If you don’t have a lid, you can always use plastic wrap or foil, but a lid works so much better.

Add As Honey As You Want

All you have to do is mix all the ingredients together in your bowl. Then, add as much honey as you want. I didn’t think it needed very much honey. Using less honey keeps the calories low and lets all the other flavors stand out.

Yeah, no joke – that’s all there is to it. Don’t you love it?! Now that I am comfortable in preparing it, I’m ready to go wild with my ingredients and flavor profiles.

Top With Your Favorite Fruit

To make it even healthier, slice up your favorite fruit and add it on top. I think chocolate and strawberries are amazing together, so I added sliced strawberries on top.

Sprinkle Coconut on Top

If you are big on contrasting textures in your food, then add some unsweetened coconut flakes on top. go a little extra and toast the coconut flakes first! That will add another layer of flavor to the pudding.

Store In The Refrigerator

This pudding will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Keep it in an airtight container for it to last longer.

  1. A few months ago I came across a recipe for a raspberry chia seed pudding. Granted I have yet to try it, it did peak my interest and I bookmarked it. Your recipe looks pretty tasty and simple and that’s a win in my book.

  2. I typically don’t like chia seeds (the texture throws me off and I hate getting things stuck in my teeth) but this recipe looks so delicious I just have to try it. Will be back with my findings!

  3. This would be such a yummy dessert! I like that it is light and easy to make, this would make a great summer or spring dessert for when we have people over.

  4. Wait seriously? Like you I had always presumed that making chia seed pudding would always be so complicated to make but I am so pleased to hear that in actual fact all you need to do is whisk all the ingredients together and stick it in the fridge. That is brilliant news!

  5. I have never tried to do this but I have heard that it is really good and that it is super easy. I definitely need to try it because I’m looking for something that hits my sweet tooth and gives me something healthy at the same time.

  6. Oh, wow! This is something different. I’ve never had this before. I would love to try to see how chia seed pudding tastes like. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Chia seeds are so healthy, I have seen so many recipes with them lately. This chia seed pudding sounds really easy to make and tasty too.

  8. I was JUST talking about Chia Seeds with a friend this past weekend. I have been wanting to try the pudding, thank you!

  9. This recipe sounds awesome. I love that I have all of these ingredients in my house so I can make it this week.

  10. This is such an original recipe idea. I have some chia seed in my pantry now and was just wondering what I could make with it and then — magically I found & read your post.

  11. I would try this off the convenience of it all. I need to eat a healthier breakfast, I currently have a muffin daily. However I’m always rushing out the door, so this is a good alternative.
