This is a basic recipe for making a delicious vegan chia pudding. 5 minute prep time, perfect for preparing meals!
Are you already in the chia pudding wagon?
We have been making chia puddings for months. It is such an easy, tasty and healthy breakfast that it literally takes 5 minutes to prepare, that it only seems logical to incorporate it into our weekly meal plan.
We especially like how versatile chia seeds are. Chia pudding, of course. But also try adding them to smoothies, fruit-infused water, bread, porridge, and more for an instant boost of nutrients!

All you need is chia seeds and some type of milk (we recommend plant-based). Everything else is optional. So, start by adding 3 tablespoons of chia seeds in a bowl, jar, or bowl. Add about 1 cup of plant-based milk. Stir. Close the jar and let it sit for about 2 hours (or refrigerate overnight). And that is!
But, if you want to give it a light touch, do what we recommend in the recipe: add a drop of vanilla extract in the milk, stir, refrigerate … and then add a delicious coconut yogurt, berries and coconut flakes to get more instinct!
Why is Chia Pudding good for you?
Chia pudding is made with chia seeds, which have several health benefits. Small seeds have a long history in human consumption, but only recently have they had their moment as a superfood in food trends.
Although small in size, these seeds contain a ton of healthy nutrients: fiber, calcium, manganese, magnesium, proteins that are essential for bone health. They also contain decent amounts of zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), potassium, vitamin B1 (thiamine), and vitamin B2.
Chia seeds also have high-quality protein, compared to other plant sources. Its protein and fiber content can help you lose weight.
