6 Ways to Make Chia Pudding

I've made chia pudding at least 100 times. I love it and love coming up with new flavor combinations. But since there are literally a million different ways to make it, I want to give you my favorites.

I've included all the recipes down below, but here are the flavors we're working with today:

  • Banana Bread
  • Lemon Raspberry
  • Coconut Vanilla Cashew
  • Chai Latte
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Strawberry Cheesecake

Chia pudding makes an awesome meal prep option, so I recommend making a few flavors on a Sunday to enjoy all week long. If you do actually assemble/mix the flavors ahead, I recommend starting your week with the ones that contain fruit (banana first!) as those will get mushy the longer they sit.

  1. Banana Bread

My first go-to flavor is banana bread. It's only 5 ingredients, tastes so good and is naturally sweet. What I love about using bananas is that because it's so sweet, you don't need to add extra sugar. The only thing about this one is it doesn't keep as well – so eat it the same day or next!

Ingredients you need for your Banana Bread Chia Pudding:

  • 1 whole banana, halved
  • 3 tablespoons black chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • Chopped walnuts to garnish

Mash half of the banana in a small bowl. Add the chia, cinnamon and almond milk and stir to combine. Allow the chia to sit for 10 – 15 minutes, or overnight. When ready to eat, add half the chia pudding into your jar. Layer on some slices of the remaining banana, then the rest of the chia pudding, the rest of the banana and some chopped walnuts.

2. Lemon Raspberry

I love the combo of lemon and fresh berries. Lemon brightens everything up and berries are sweet, but still low on the glycemic index which makes the whole meal a little healthier. This chia pudding is zingy, fresh and delicious!

Ingredients you need for your Lemon Raspberry Chia Pudding

  • 3 tablespoons white chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh raspberries + more to garnish

Add the chia seeds, syrup and most of the lemon zest into a bowl. Stir to combine and then let the bowl sit for 10 – 15 minutes to thicken up. When ready to serve, add half the raspberries to the bottom of your jar and mash them into a “jam” consistency. Give the chia pudding a quick stir then add it on top of the raspberries. Finish with a few more raspberries and the rest of the lemon zest.

3. Vanilla Coconut Cashew

I'm a coconut lover and this chia pudding recipe is one of my favorites on the list. It's made with creamy coconut milk which gives it a little natural sweetness, but we also stir in some vanilla to give it a pop of flavor. Finished off with some cashew butter and coconut flakes and it tastes like incredible!

Ingredients you need for your Vanilla Coconut Cashew:

  • 3 tablespoons black chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup canned coconut milk (full-fat or lite)
  • 1 tablespoon cashew butter
  • Shredded coconut to garnish

Whisk together the chia seeds, syrup, extract and milk in a small bowl. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 – 15 minutes until the mixture has thickened. Give it a stir before serving then add the chia pudding into a jar (or keep it in the bowl). Top with the cashew butter and coconut flakes.

4. Chai Latte

I've always loved the chai lattes from Starbucks, but they're just too much sugar for me these days. So I created a chia pudding inspired by that drink! It tastes like a chai latte, but is packed with protein and not much sugar. It's also caffeine-free so it can be enjoyed as an afternoon treat as well.

Ingredients you need for your Chai Latte Chia Pudding:

  • 3 tablespoons black chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon each: nutmeg, ginger, cloves, cardamom
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • Chopped pecans and a cinnamon stick to garnish

Whisk together the chia seeds, sugar, spices, and milk in a bowl. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 – 15 minutes until it has thickened. Give it a stir before serving then add the chia pudding into a jar (or keep it in the bowl). Top with the almond butter, pecans, and a cinnamon stick if desired.

5. Dark Chocolate

I had to throw something chocolatey in here because I just love chocolate for breakfast! This combination has a base of creamy chocolate pudding (thanks to cacao and almond milk) and then is topped with coconut yogurt, hazelnuts, and mini chocolate chips. It's just divine!

Ingredients you need for your Dark Chocolate Chia Pudding:

  • 3 tablespoons black chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • Coconut yogurt, chopped hazelnuts and chocolate chips to garnish

Whisk together the chia seeds, raw cacao powder, maple syrup, and almond milk in a bowl. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 – 15 minutes until it has thickened. Give it a stir before serving then add the chia pudding into a jar (or keep it in the bowl). Top it with coconut yogurt, nuts and some chocolate chips if desired!

6. Strawberry Cheesecake

This might just be my favorite ones on the list! There's a creamy coconut-infused base and then a layer of strawberry jam and finished with some chopped fruit and almonds on top. Each layer is infused with sweet strawberries and a creaminess that reminds me of cheesecake. It's fabulous!

Ingredients you need for your Strawberry Cheesecake Chia Pudding:

  • 3 tablespoons white chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry jam
  • Fresh strawberries & almonds to garnish

Whisk together the chia seeds, vanilla, and milks in a bowl. Allow the mixture to sit for 10 – 15 minutes until it has thickened. Give it a stir before serving then add half of the chia pudding into a jar (or keep it in the bowl). Top with the jam and spread it into an even layer and then add the rest of the chia pudding on top. Finish with the fresh strawberries and almonds.
