Best Keto Vanilla Chia Pudding

197 ratings

Keto chia vanilla pudding is as simple as it gets for dessert – or even breakfast! Instead of a sugary, gelatinous blob, this chia seed pudding is a far healthier option to enjoy. This makes a great base Keto dessert recipe for those who don’t see a flavor of chia pudding they’d like on Carb Manager. Chia pudding makes for one of the best Keto dessert recipes as it is so versatile, and you can add any additional flavors or toppings at your own discretion! This easy Keto dessert recipe can also be enjoyed by those following vegan and Paleo diets.

Is chia pudding healthy?

Chia pudding can be an excellent addition to your low-carb diet when consumed in moderation. Packed with fiber and antioxidants, chia seeds are protein-rich and loaded with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. This means you can enjoy a sweet Keto dessert treat entirely guilt-free while also reaping the benefits for your health. What’s not to love?!

How to flavor chia pudding?

This easy Keto chia pudding recipe provides you with a classic base to which you can experiment with flavors and toppings. You can add low carb sweeteners and syrups, Keto carb fruit jam, unsweetened cocoa powder, pumpkin spice mix…the possibilities and flavor combinations are limitless! Simply stir your preferred additions into the chia and milk mixture before setting or layer over the set pudding as a topping. Be sure to factor these additions into your macros.

Can you use other types of milk?

Yes! Feel free to use other nuts milk for the pudding base. For a richer Keto pudding, use coconut milk. However, because this milk tends to be thicker, it will set in the fridge faster than nut milk. If using coconut milk, please use the canned variety.

Recipe Steps

steps 3

12 h 5 min

  • Step 1

    Add the chia seeds, almond milk and vanilla extract to a bowl. Whisk everything together until well combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and transfer to the fridge. The chia pudding needs to chill in order to allow the seeds to expand and absorb the liquid. This can take a minimum of two hours, but for best results and a thicker pudding, leave overnight.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Divide the chia pudding between individual serving bowls or glasses. Optionally top with your favorite Keto toppings such as fresh berries or toasted coconut flakes. Be sure to adjust your macros to allow for any toppings added.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Enjoy your Keto chia pudding as a dessert or even breakfast option. This is also a great option for batch prepping in advance, providing you with ready-made snacks or desserts throughout the week. Perfect served in individual dessert ramekins or mini mason jars for breakfast on the go.

      This was delicious! Instead of stevia I added a tiny bit of sugarless vanilla syrup and once it was ready I added a tiny bit of sugarless strawberry jam on top. Yum!!!

        I used a refrigerated Almond/Coconut milk. Because of this I didn’t use a sweetener. Added about 15 mashed thawed blueberries and just a splash of vanilla. It was great!

            This was absolutely disgusting. Followed the recipe exactly and even after 24 hrs it was still just lumpy almond milk. Zero flavor. I'll stick with the paleo chocolate version of this

              I am allergic to almonds, so I used homemade Half n Half instead, worked like a charm and I used pure vanilla powder by Aki. I let the mixture set overnight, the texture was pudding like the next morning and enjoyable.

                        I use vanilla or chocolate protein powder instead of vanilla. I also use Macadamia nut milk.

                          I make this without the vanilla and use 8 grams peanut butter powder and little stevia

                            I enjoyed this receipe however the vanilla had to be increased becoz I didn’t use vanilla flavored milk. I also added 1 T chia so it would thicken up. Adding 4 blackberries to the mix really helped too.

                              So I followed the recipe to a "T". Although i used macadamia nut milk instead. Overnight it half coagulated. Any tips to fix this batch or just to be patient?

                                I usually stir mine with a fork to mix, then sit at room temperature for 5 to 10 min and stir again before placing in the fridge

                                Just had to stir mine and break up gelatinous lumps. I did add an extra tablespoon too. I haven't tried it yet, and i haven't added anything else yet. I hope it will continue to thicken now.

                              Yum yum! Nice for breakfast. Added an extra tbsp of chia as suggested and it came out lovely and thick. Also a teaspoon each of flax seed, double cream and erythritol. You can make this your own by adding all sorts as the basic recipe is so low in carbs and calorie.
