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.
