Jump to Recipe

I always thought that chia pudding was just okay, until I found a way to make my chia pudding thicker, creamier and more flavorful than regular chia pudding. The secret is using coconut milk from a can, instead of regular dairy free milk. It makes the chia pudding so thick, fluffy, and full of delicious coconut flavor! I hope you enjoy this delicious and creamy chia pudding.

What you will need

The ingredients for this chia pudding couldn’t be easier! All you will need is:

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

How to make the chia pudding

  1. To a bowl, add the coconut milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, and vanilla.
  2. Stir all of the ingredients well.
  3. Cover the bowl with a lid and place in the fridge overnight.
  4. Your chia pudding will be thick, creamy, and ready to enjoy in the morning.
  5. I like topping mine with berries.

How long to soak chia seeds

One of the hardest things to do when you make something delicious is to have to wait for it to be ready to eat. This chia pudding is a really easy and no bake dessert, but it does require some time for the chia seeds to absorb the moisture from the coconut milk and to thicken up.

I like to make my chia pudding at night so it can be ready by the morning, but I totally understand not wanting to wait that long. Fortunately, I have noticed that by 2-3 hours, the chia seeds have already thickened significantly and pretty much ready to enjoy.

How to make this a keto chia pudding

I’m not an expert on the keto diet by any means, but I get a lot of readers on my Instagram asking if certain recipes are keto. Since all of my recipes are vegan, they usually are high in carbs, but this coconut chia pudding actually happens to be low in carbs and is both vegan and can easily be made keto!

The maple syrup that I add is the only ingredient that is high in carbs. Alternatively to maple syrup, you can use a low carb sweetener to substitute the sugar, but still have a delicious and sweet dessert recipe that tastes like a treat too. I know that there are many different kinds of low carb and low calorie sweeteners. My personal favorite is stevia or monk fruit sweetener. I am not sponsored by either of these brands, but I am going to link to a stevia and a monk fruit sweetener that I have personally tried and enjoy.
