Sharing is caring!

I love chia seed pudding! When it comes to chia puddings, the flavor varieties seem to be endless! Whatever flavor you are craving, the odds are there is a whole30 chia seed pudding recipe to satisfy your hunger.

Many of these recipes are great for people living a keto lifestyle. Replace honey with artificial sweetener and stay away from the recipes with banana.

How to Make Keto & Whole 30 Chia Seed Pudding Recipes

Here’s my favorite simple chia seed pudding.

I prefer to use unsweetened almond milk. The pudding comes out tasting like thick melted vanilla ice cream.

I could seriously eat this every morning for breakfast! It’s an excellent breakfast grab-and-go breakfast that will keep you full for hours!

Chia seed pudding is easy to make! Mix 1/2 cup chia seeds, 2 cups a dairy or non-dairy liquid, 2-3 tablespoons swerve (or your favorite sweetener), 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, a dash of salt, and optional add-ins.

Combine everything except the optional add-ins into a mason jar.

Use a fork to break up clumps. Stir with a fork every 10 minutes. Do this at least twice.

I like to place the jar lying on its side in the refrigerator overnight. I find the pudding doesn’t get as clumping if the jar on its side.

Add in your favorite toppings. I usually eat the pudding as is, but if I have fresh berries, I’ll add them in.

Chia pudding does NOT need to be cooked, but it does require some sitting time in the refrigerator for the seeds to expand. I like to soak the seeds overnight so the pudding is smoother and the seeds have less crunch.

Here are some of the typical dairy and non-dairy liquids used to make chia seed pudding:

  • Unsweetened Almond Milk – This is my personal favorite.
  • Coconut milk
  • Oat Milk
  • Heavy cream
  • Milk
  • Soy milk
  • Rice milk
  • Hemp milk

How Can You Make Chia Seed Pudding Not Slimy?

Make instant chia seed pudding by placing main pudding ingredients into a blender and blending for three minutes. This will break the seeds up, resulting in a smoother pudding.

I prefer overnight chia seeds, but I won’t complain about an instant chia pudding! They are both delicious!

How Many Carbs Do Chia Seeds Have?

According to the USDA FoodData Central, 1 ounce of dried chia seeds contains 138 calories, 11.9 carbs, and 9.75 fiber = 2.15 carbs!

One teaspoon may not seem like a lot if you have never had chia seeds before but keep in mind they swell up and can expand up to 10 times their original size.

Chia seeds expand up to 10x their original size when soaked in a liquid

Is Chia Seed Pudding Whole30 Compliant?
