To make chia seed pudding, you typically combine chia seeds with a liquid, such as milk (dairy or plant-based), coconut milk, almond milk, or any other preferred liquid. The chia seeds absorb the liquid and expand, creating a gel-like texture that resembles pudding.
Here’s a basic recipe for chia seed pudding:


  • 1/4 cup chia seeds

  • 1 cup milk or your preferred liquid (e.g., almond milk, coconut milk, etc.)

  • Sweetener (optional) like honey, maple syrup, agave nectar, or any sweetener of your choice

  • Flavorings (optional) such as vanilla extract, cocoa powder, or fruit puree


  • In a bowl or jar, mix the chia seeds and milk (or liquid of your choice).
  • Add sweetener to taste and any flavorings you desire.
  • Stir well to combine all the ingredients thoroughly.
  • Cover the bowl or jar and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. During this time, the chia seeds will absorb the liquid and thicken to form the pudding-like consistency.
  • Once the chia seeds have absorbed the liquid and the mixture has thickened, you can enjoy your chia seed pudding as is or add toppings like fresh fruits, nuts, granola, or shredded coconut for added texture and flavor.
