Chia Puddings (Keto | Low Carb | Vegan | Paleo)
Wake up to these beautiful pots of joy for a super healthy, low carb, dairy-free breakfast. They are easy to whip up, very versatile and great for meal prep.
Lazy & Loving It…
Chia seed pudding recipes are all over the internet, because they are ridiculously easy to prepare and make for the perfect lazy morning breakfast!
This tasty breakfast treat is also super nutritious. Chia seeds are high in fibre, protein, minerals and essential fatty acids. Since pretty much all the carbs in chia seeds are made up of fibre, they are perfect for a low carb, keto lifestyle!
To make chia puddings, all you have to do is whisk the ingredients together, pop it in the fridge overnight and voilá… when you rise and shine, breakfast is served!
Tried & Tested…
I first tried chia puddings about a year ago, and was not 100% onboard with the idea of them. They have the same kind of texture as tapioca pudding (which I was not a fan of to start with). However, I was determined to try it again and again, and I’m so glad I did. This has become a favorite go-to breakfast for myself and kids as it is VERY versatile. They can be made with different milks, syrups, flavors and toppings to ensure they never get boring.
Many Milk Options…
I usually use unsweetened almond milk, since I always have it on hand, however, other milks that work well with chia puddings are:
- Coconut Milk
- Cashew Milk
- Hazelnut Milk
- Macadamia Milk or
- Regular Cows Milk
Syrups, Flavors & Discount Codes…
As I stated above, the options are endless with chia puddings. I have a couple of favourite sugar-free syrups that I add to my chia puddings (both American & British brands – the joy of living in both countries whilst being keto) including:
- CHOCZERO – maple syrup, banana syrup and strawberry syrup. To get 10% of your order, enter this code at checkout:

Few of My Favourite Combinations…
