❀️ Why you will love Keto Chia Seed Pudding

  • It’s SO easy to make! It took me about 5 minutes to prepare these keto chia pudding recipes, and then all I had to do was pop them in the fridge overnight.
  • It’s low carb. These tiny little seeds have about 12g carbs per 2 tablespoons, however, 11g of those are fiber, which leaves us with just 1g net carbs per 2 tablespoons.
  • Simple ingredients: I love it when I know exactly what’s in my food, and this creamy keto chia pudding has wholesome pantry staple ingredients. No funny stuff here!
  • You can experiment with flavors. As long as it’s low carb you can probably fit it in and stick to your carb limit. There are so many options: nuts and nut butter, sugar-free syrups, different kinds of milk and cream, and even fresh fruit like berries. Check below for a list of 7 different flavor ideas!
  • It’s perfect for meal prep. You can make a whole batch of keto pudding for the week in just 5 minutes. What I like to do is make the base layer which is chia seeds, coconut milk, vanilla extract, liquid stevia drops, and a pinch of salt, and then add other toppings throughout the week depending on what I fancy at the time. It’s perfect for a low carb breakfast, dessert, or a quick snack!

πŸ—οΈ Key Ingredients

  • Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are incredible. Not only are they extremely low carb and perfect for the keto diet, but they also expand when you add them to a liquid, making the texture of chia pudding gooey, almost jelly (jello)-like in texture. So cool! All you need is 2 tablespoons of chia seeds for 2 servings of low carb chia pudding.
  • Milk: Any milk you have on hand is perfectly fine for these recipes. I used half a can of reduced fat coconut milk, but full-fat or coconut milk in a carton will work as well, or even unsweetened almond milk, or really any other milk. You choose!
  • Keto sweetener: I had liquid stevia drops in my pantry and opted for this as it mixes so well with other liquids. Another sugar-free sweetener of choice like powdered erythritol or monk fruit would be great too. Note: If you don’t use a powdered or liquid sweetener it may turn out a little grainy.
  • Vanilla: A little warmth, sweetness, and flavor, vanilla is delicious in many desserts including Keto Chia Seed Pudding.
  • Salt: Just a little pinch of salt brings these aromas out to their fullest, especially in the nutty chia pudding version.
