Ultimate Keto Overnight Almond Chia Pudding

309 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!

        If lactose is the issue can you use lactose free milk?

          Good idea…I am not a big fun of almond milk or those other pretend “milk” drinks

          The recipe calls for almond milk which is lactose free already

        I made with almond milk but I added 1 scoop of WPI. I suppose if I didn't it would've been very watery. Perhaps 1/2 almond and 1/2 coconut cream would be ideal. I also added peanut butter. It's nice and refreshing. 4 stars for me .

          I thought healthy animal products were the point on keto? Why use plant milks?

            Cream is very low in carbs and tastes much better.

            Compare the carbs of dairy milk to that of plant milks and it will all make sense.

          • mserkin

            Milk has lactose, a sugar, and therefore more carbs than some plant milks.

          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 😋👏

              I’ve meal prep 3-4 at a time. 2 1/2 tablespoons Chia seed, 1/2 cup of Califia Toasted coconut & Almond Milk Blend, 2 tsp. Truvia Monk fruit sweetener, 1 tablespoon of Almond slivers and 1 tablespoon of toasted unsweetened coconut flakes. I have never heated anything while prepping. 🤷‍♀️

              I did the 5 -1 minute time stirring in between. That worked perfectly! Next time I’m going to use a bigger bowl so it doesn’t boil over 😉

              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)

              Never had a sweet tooth until keto now I do and the berries make this simple, filling, guilt free, pudding. Luv it 😍
