How to Make Chia Pudding – 4 Easy Chia Pudding Recipes!

How to Make Chia Pudding

Hey Y’all!  Today, I’m showing you how to make chia pudding and sharing 4 Easy Chia Pudding Recipes that are unbelievably delicious!

If you’re new to the whole chia pudding craze, don’t worry because I’m going to walk you through how to make the basic chia pudding recipe, so you’ll know the foundation of any chia pudding.

Why I Consider Chia Pudding a Superfood Delight…

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of the many benefits of chia seeds.  Not only are they a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, but they’re also high in fiber, protein, antioxidants, potassium, and calcium.

In fact, chia seeds are a great way to increase your fiber intake without having to consume as many greens.

And, the great thing about chia pudding is that it’s a very flexible recipe.  You can add pretty much any flavor, fruit, etc. to it and it always turns out delicious!

**You can make all of these recipes low carb or keto-friendly by reducing the amount of fruits and using a low carb sweetener, instead of raw honey.

Watch Me Make All 4 Recipes Below…

 

Recipe #1 – Regular Chia Pudding

The first chia pudding recipe I’ll be sharing is the regular chia pudding mixture.  You can use this as your foundation for any chia pudding recipe and then build on it from there by adding your desired toppings, fruits, superfoods powders, etc.
