  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup almond milk or milk of your choosing
  • 1 tsp honey
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • strawberries or the topping of your choosing


  • In a bowl add chia seeds, milk, honey, and vanilla extract. Whisk until well combined.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, up to overnight.
  • Serving with your favorite toppings.



  • Since the ingredient list is so short, I highly recommend using real vanilla extract for the best-tasting chia pudding. You will be able to taste the difference between real vanilla extract and artificial extract.
  • If you’re not a fan of the tapioca-like texture, you can blend the ingredients in a blender. By using a blender, the pudding takes on a mousse-like texture instead.
  • Feel free to adjust the ratio of milk to chia to your liking. If you prefer a thinner pudding, you can add more liquid. If you’d like a thicker pudding, you can use less liquid.
  • If your chia seed pudding is lumpy, simply grab a fork, stir the pudding, and allow the pudding to set for another 10 minutes before enjoying.
  • If your chia seeds are old, they might not absorb the milk that well and not gel up. So make sure your chia seeds are not expired and are stored in a cool, dark, and dry place.
