These keto chia seed pudding recipes are a delicious, low-carb breakfast, snack, or dessert you can prep in minutes the night before. You’ll be prepared with healthy make-ahead meals ready to eat or take on the go.
Easy Meal Prep Pudding for Breakfast or Dessert
Chia pudding recipes are a dream come true for easy meal prep. Enjoy a bowl of chia seed pudding instead of hot keto cereal in the morning, or finish your meal with a refreshing no-bake dessert.
One serving only consists of two tablespoons of chia seed, so a little goes a long way. (1) First, create the base by soaking the seeds overnight. Then, mix flavorful add-ins and customize the recipe precisely to your liking.
This way of making pudding is so simple. No wonder chia pudding is such a trendy breakfast option!
Remember when you made oatmeal and soaked the oats overnight? It’s like that, but without the carbs! Oats don’t cut it on a keto diet because they are too high in carbohydrates, but chia seeds do. With only 2 g net carb per serving, how can you say no? (2)
How to Make Keto Chia Pudding
Start the night before by adding the seeds to a jar or bowl and covering them with a liquid. Choose something simple for your first recipe like coconut milk, nut milk, cream, or half and half. After you’ve made chia pudding once, feel free to branch out and use keto hot chocolate, tea, or coffee!
Give the mix a good stir, wait five to ten minutes, and stir well again. Then, allow it to sit in the fridge overnight.
When the next morning dawns, pop your chia seed bowl out of the fridge and add the final touches with a keto sweetener and toppings. Anything from berries to nut butter and chocolate to matcha is delicious!
On their own, chia seeds have a neutral flavor which provides a blank slate with more texture than taste. As a result, they are the perfect base for all your favorite flavors.
You can make chia pudding by the bowl or multiple a recipe for enough servings to last all week.
The texture of soaked chia seeds is unlike anything else because the seeds swell and quadruple in size after soaking. I find the final result similar to cooked tapioca.
If you don’t love the bubbly texture, blend the recipe in a blender or with an immersion blender until silky smooth. No problem.
Main Ingredients for Low-Carb Chia Pudding
- Chia seed
