4 Chia Seed Pudding Recipes: Delicious, Healthy and Easy!

Chia seeds are a superfood, with nutritional properties rarely found in other foods. These seeds can be prepared in many ways, but among the most delicious are, without a doubt, chia seed pudding recipes.

With only 10 grams of chia you get enough Omega-3 needed to make our vital functions. But sometimes it is boring to consume it, especially if you use the usual recipes.

That’s why today I want to encourage you to do something different: try chia in a sweet or in a dessert, in a night snack or in a breakfast, through easy-to-prepare recipes.

Here are some that you should add to your recipe book.

The 4 Best Chia Seed Pudding Recipes

Chia Seeds Pudding with Cocoa

Chia Seeds Pudding with Cocoa
  • Save

This recipe is very easy to make, and you’ll only need ingredients that you probably already have at home.

In just 10 minutes, you will have it ready.

Ingredients needed

  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder (preferably unsweetened)
  • 6 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 250 milliliters of vegetable milk (one cup)


Add all the above ingredients and slowly pour in the milk while stirring. This will ensure that everything is well integrated, and you will not need to use a blender.

Let the mixture stand for about 15 minutes.

Once the time has elapsed, stir it all again. It is time to add it to an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

When it is well chilled, divide this chia pudding into different glasses.

How to consume and decorate

The advantage of this recipe is that you can add the fruit of your choice, such as blueberries, raspberries or banana, and even pistachios or almonds.

Make sure it is well chilled. Although 4 hours may be enough, it is recommended to leave the pudding in the refrigerator overnight.

Chia Seeds and Oat Pudding

Chia pudding combines very well with oatmeal. This way we will have even more energy, as well as more satiety without giving us empty calories like so many other desserts.

In this recipe, we are also going to add red berries, to give it an even more special flavor.

Ingredients you need

  • 4 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 200 grams of oatmeal
  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 350 ml water
  • 150 grams of berries (frozen or fresh)
  • 150 ml of coconut milk (optional)


Use a blender to crush the berries and add the 350 ml of water to obtain a smoothie.

Add this smoothie in a bowl and add the chia, oats, agave and coconut milk if you have decided to add it.

Blend well and put in an airtight container in the cold. As in the previous case, you need a minimum of 4 hours for it to be ready to eat.

Serving and decorating tips

To give it a chic touch and make the chia pudding recipe even tastier, you can add fruits on top such as blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, or raspberries.

You can divide the recipe into several glasses, or leave it in the same bowl, depending on what you are going to use it for.

Chia Seed Pudding with Maqui Berries

  • Save

This dessert is a little more complicated to obtain, as maqui berries are not always available in supermarkets. You may have to resort to a parapharmacy or specialized herbodietetic centers.

These berries are known for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. They even have benefits that affect the eye, as they help regenerate tear fluid.

Here is this chia recipe, very simple to prepare.


  • 10 grams of maqui berries
  • 40 grams of chia seeds
  • 400 grams of almond milk
  • 30 grams of coconut sugar

How to prepare

Use a fork to mix the chia with the sugar and the maqui berries. Add the almond milk and continue stirring until everything is well integrated.

In 1-2 hours of chilling, this recipe should be set and ready to eat.

As you can see, it couldn’t be easier to make.

Consumption and decoration

As decoration ideas, you can use ingredients such as mint leaves, raspberries, blueberries, cocoa seeds, dried coconut, chopped almonds, or some kind of dried fruit.

I recommend serving the dessert in bowls, as this will make it easier to decorate and consume.

Chia Seed and Pumpkin Seed Pudding

  • Save

This combination of seeds can be very interesting to get the energy you lack to get to the end of the day.

Pumpkin seeds reinforce the intake of minerals such as zinc or magnesium.

Ingredients to prepare

  • 250 milliliters of a vegetable drink (it could be of coconut, hazelnuts, almonds…)
  • 1 teaspoon of pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder

How to prepare the recipe?

Use a blender to puree the chia seeds, plant-based milk, maple syrup and cinnamon. If you don’t like it all crushed, you can mix it by hand.

Let it take about 5 minutes and blend again.

Add the pumpkin seeds on top and put everything in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Depending on the thickness you are looking for, you will have to leave it in the refrigerator for more or less time. For a considerable thickness, you can leave it in the refrigerator for 8 hours, or even overnight.

Consume and decorate

This chia pudding can be decorated with peach, banana, blackberries, and raspberries. You will only have to put a couple for each serving to make the dessert look better, besides being more nutritious.

We recommend eating it as a dessert once a day. It will help you to be satiated, in addition to providing you with the Omega-3 you need.

Final Words

These are some of the best chia seed pudding recipes you can find.

They are easy to make and, except for a few things, if you have chia, you can make them with ingredients you have at home.

It’s time to get to work and make them!
