What If I Don't Have The Ingredients

The best part about Chia Pudding is that you can get pretty creative with the ingredients. I typically toss in what I have on hand. The only thing you have to have is the chia seeds and some type of milk!

Milk: I've also used Cashew Milk. The pudding doesn't set up as firm but it's still great! You also can choose Unsweetened Coconut or Almond Milks, instead of Vanilla or Chocolate. If you prefer Cow's Milk, you can use that as well. Even Rice Milk will work!

Sweeteners: You don't have to use Maple Syrup. Feel free to substitute with Honey or your favorite sweetener.

How to Make Each Variety

Mix all of the ingredients together, sprinkling the chia seeds in a little at a time so they don't clump.

Taste test so you can adjust sweeteners and spices to your liking.

Pour your mixture into Ramakins or small sized containers so you make single servings.

Set in the fridge covered for 4 hours or overnight, and enjoy! Puddings typically last in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.

What To Do With Left Over Pumpkin Purée

If you happen to make the Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding and you have a dog, you can use the other 1/2 can to make healthy biscuits for your pup! Check out my Pumpkin Dog Biscuit Recipe.
