What is keto Chia Seed pudding?

Chia Seed Pudding is a delicious and healthy keto breakfast or dessert that has many health benefits.

I usually make this super simple recipe with any unsweetened dairy-free milk, chia seeds, high-quality cocoa powder and vanilla extract.


You can add keto approved sweeteners, but sometimes I prefer to enjoy it plain, so I can taste the rich chocolate and subtle vanilla flavor.

What are the benefits of chia seeds?

The Aztec warriors and Mayans used chia seeds as a sustainable source of energy and endurance. In fact, chia is the Mayan word for “strength”.

These tiny seeds pack many key nutrients that contribute to a better health.

Almost all the carbohydrates in chia seeds are fiber which makes them a perfect food in the ketogenic diet. Fiber is not digested in the body and doesn’t impact the blood sugar.

Simple ingredients, the best keto chia puddingingredients for keto chia pudding

To make this easy keto breakfast, you will need some simple healthy ingredients:

  • coconut milk
  • chia seeds
  • vanilla extract
  • cocoa powder
  • cinnamon
  • keto approved sweetener to taste

This recipe is a staple for me, I make it at least 3 times a week. It keeps me full for hours and helps with digestion due to the high fiber content.

The coconut milk gives a creamy texture and helps the chia seeds gel. Feel free to use any dairy-free unsweetened milk like almond milk, cashew milk or walnut milk.

Chia seeds can absorb up to 9 times their weight in liquid. For this recipe, I used 1:4 ratio, meaning 1/4 cup chia seeds to 1 cup water. I think that this way you will get the right pudding consistency, not to thick and not too liquid.

For the toppings, you can simply sprinkle some cinnamon or add a few berries.

This recipe can be used for those who are vegan and do a ketogenic diet, paleo diet or are intolerant to dairy. It provides healthy fats, low in carbohydrates and has high-quality protein.

  1. Will ground chia seeds work the same in this. I have tried making a pudding from them at least 2 if not 3 times and it never set up. Maybe I need more seeds when they are ground. I have no clue.

  2. Can I make this with fat free milk instead of a nut milk? I'd love to try to make this, but wont if it doesn't work well!

    • If you are not on a ketogenic diet you can use any milk you want. On keto, we focus on eating the foods high in fat. The chia pudding can be made with water too because it absorbs well liquids.

      • I had the same question. Canned coconut milk and coconut milk drink found with the almond milk in the store are both liquid Which do you use?

        • You need to use liquid milk. Both almond milk and coconut milk will work well. Using the canned ones will yield a creamier and dense chia pudding.

    • You can count the whole chia seed pudding recipe as a serving, but it is very filling. I usually end up eating half for breakfast and eat the rest of it as a snack later if I feel hungry. The keto chia pudding has only one gram net carbs for a huge serving and it's loaded with health benefits.
