Ultimate Keto Overnight Almond Chia Pudding

304 ratings

This is the most ultimate Keto chia pudding recipe you’ll ever need. You’ll never need another morning breakfast recipe because the simplicity of this one will beat everything else out of the water. Take just 5 minutes to prepare everything and let your refrigerator do the rest. Raw chia seeds are mixed with almond milk and just a couple of other ingredients. You can add in your own mix-ins, but some suggestions are made further below. The pudding will thicken overnight, and you can eat it immediately after waking up in the morning. This is a gluten-free and vegan Keto recipe, so anyone can enjoy it. Even if you don’t fit those categories, you’ll never get over how easy Keto recipes can be.

What else can I add to my pudding?

There are lots of mix-ins or toppings you can add to chia pudding. If you like the almond flavor or want something that gives the illusion of a sweeter taste, add a drop of almond extract or vanilla extract to your pudding in the initial steps. For texture, try adding chopped nuts or whole blueberries to the pudding.

Tips to keep in mind

It’s important to pay attention to the temperatures of your chia pudding while you’re making it. It’s important to make sure your entire mixture gets hot throughout so all the seeds can rehydrate properly. Equally, the chia pudding needs to chill completely before it will thicken up properly. Don’t take any shortcuts with the times!

Perfect Keto breakfast

Overnight almond chia pudding is perfect for breakfast for anyone who is always in a rush in the mornings. Divide the raw pudding amongst small mason jars that can be sealed. Take the thickened pudding in the jars to go without missing a second of your busy morning!

    I love chia seed pudding but instead of almond milk I use a can of full fat coconut milk. It makes the pudding a bit thicker than when you use almond milk

      Did you heat the coconut milk the same way as in the recipe?

    Second time making this, this time I warmed up the milk first before adding the seeds & this really helped to speed up the swelling of them, then lots of stirring required to bring it together to thicken up. Great wee speedy breakfast or on hand treat when need something sweet 😁👏

      Made this recipe to the letter as never made Chai pudding before, and found that the pudding really thickened after in/out microwave c 5 times for a min at time & stirring really well each time & it’s now set thick before even chilling overnight in fridge! Added flavours, nibs & fruit - looking forward to something different tomw 😋👏

          Mine was runny this morning, so I added another tsp of chia seed to the batch and put back in the frig. I have never had chia pudding; hope it tastes good.

            I personally have always loved chia pudding over oatmeal. But I’d highly recommend getting some Jordan’s Skinny Syrups to flavor your chia pudding/oatmeal/coffee/smoothies etc so much tastier than just stevia in my opinion. Chia pudding is sometimes a texture hurdle for people, I never had an issue but some are weird about it. I compare it to rice pudding/tapioca. Enjoy! It’s a yummy base for awesome toppings! (Berries, keto Choc chips, keto granola, nuts)

            Followed the directions to a "t" and it was still liquid. Very disappointed.

              I think there's double the amount of almond milk in the recipe than required. I added 1 mugs worth and it worked

              I don’t have a a microwave. I do this in a pot on the stove on medium and I allow it to boil for about 1 minute is enough. Totally worth it especially if you’re making 2 or 4 servings! I just added crushed macadamia nuts to the top before eating, and it’s was epic! Enjoy!

            Great snack food…I add cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and a tablespoon of hemp seeds. Teaspoon of cool whip on top. One time added sugar free jello pie filling…banana cream is my favorite.

                I made 1 single serving of this to try because, in the past, I had tried overnight chia seeds pudding and failed. The consistency had been too watery and it was more like a drink with seeds in it. (The ratio of milk and seeds given in the ingredients did not seem correct for a thick consistency). So, this time, I followed suggestions mentioned in the comment section and I used ½ cup unsweetened almond milk, 3 tablespoons of chia seeds, cinnamon, a dash of vanilla. I added everything in a small 8oz mason jar and shook it a few times before refrigerating. I checked on it before going to bed and the milk was mostly soaked up by the chia seeds and already had a thick consistency. My chia seeds had been in the pantry for close to a year, so not fresh. It smelled yummy. I mixed again with a spoon and refrigerate over night. Today, I just added a teaspoon of sunflower butter and consumed. The consistency is thick and similar to that of tapioca. The “slimy” sensation is not too bad for me to tolerate but I enjoy tapioca pudding anyway. It does not have much flavor as is but I don’t mind it. I will make more portions for the week and try different flavoring options suggested by others. I will also try eating it warm but warming it prior to preparing it was not necessary .

                  Leave the ratio of ingredients. Scrap the microwave and put the mixture in a small pot on the stove. Let it boil for about a minute. The longer it boils for, the thicker it will be the next day. Try again!

                Ugh! Could not stomach this pudding. Even though I topped half of it with cacao nibs and blackberries it was still tasteless.

                  I added blueberries, strawberries 1/8 cup each with monk fruit, no cocoa nibs nor blackberries.

                  Try adding some flavoring like vanilla extract, maple extract, cinnamon, ginger, sugar free maple syrup, etc. This is a basic recipe meant to be modified by flavorings of your choice!

                I love this recipe! Easy and delicious. I add different flavors. If you warm up the almond milk (sugar free) there is no need to mix again.
