Ingredients of Chia Seed Pudding
To make chia seeds pudding, you will need:

Time needed: 3 hours.
Chia seed pudding is a delicious and healthy alternative to traditional pudding. It is easy to make and can be customized to suit your taste preferences. Here are the steps to make chia seed pudding:
- Combine chia seeds and milk in a bowl or jar.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cup of chia seeds with 1 cup of liquid (such as almond milk, coconut milk, or any other milk of your choice). Mix well to ensure that the chia seeds are evenly distributed.
- Stir well and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.
Wait for 5 min.
- Add a sweetener of your choice and stir well.
Add a sweetener of your choice, like honey or maple syrup, to taste. You can also add vanilla extract, cocoa powder, or any other flavorings of your choice. Mix well.
- Refrigerate for 2 hours.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. This will allow the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and thicken into a pudding-like consistency.
- Toppings of your choice.
After refrigeration, give the pudding a good stir and add any toppings of your choice like fresh fruits, nuts, or granola.
- Serve the pudding.
Serve the pudding chilled and enjoy! You can make it in advance and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Note: The ratio of chia seeds to liquid can be adjusted to your preference. Some people prefer a thicker pudding, while others prefer a thinner consistency. You can play around with the ratio until you find the perfect balance for you.
