Creamy Chia Pudding (Paleo, Vegan, Blood Sugar Friendly)

Creamy Chia Pudding (Paleo, Vegan, Blood Sugar Friendly)

Recipe credit: MaddHealthy 


Chia seeds deliver a MASSIVE amount of nutrients. There’s tons of fiber, healthy omega-3 fats, high quality plant protein and more. Not only does this recipe taste delicious, it is SO good for you!


Ingredient list (serves 2-4)

  • 1 can of full-fat coconut milk (or about 2 cups of creamy non-dairy liquid)

  • ~3 tablespoons of water

  • ~1-3 tablespoons of sweetener (I like 1/4 teaspoon of 100% pure monkfruit from Julian Bakery for no-sugar!)

  • 1/2 cup chia seeds

  • Optional: Pinch of sea salt

  • Optional: Dash of cinnamon

  • Optional: 1 teaspoon lucuma (code Maddhealthy15 on shopkarenberrios!)

  • Optional: 1 tsp vanilla extract

Step 1

Add all the ingredients to a blender, and blend them for 1-2 minutes until it is well incorporated and starts to thicken. Then, pour it into a glass container and let it sit. You’ll want to mix it occasionally while it sits for 15-30 minutes until it’s pudding-like.

You don’t have to blend, but some like to! If you are not using a blender, and just making regular chia pudding, add all of the ingredients OTHER than the chia seeds into a large glass bowl. Mix it well, and then add in the chia seeds and mix it intermittently over the course of 15-30 minutes. You can also mix with an immersion blender! The pudding takes a little while to “gel” up, so be patient and mix intermittently over the course of 20-30 minutes and then it will be perfect.


Step 2

Time to TOP! I top mine with almond “greek yogurt” from Kite Hill Foods, almond butter from Abby’s Better, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, strawberries and blueberries! These are my preferred toppings to keep it blood-sugar balancing, but top it with whatever your heart desires!
