Chia pudding is a great example of a recipe that Delish loves since it allows us to relax. Chia seeds may seem difficult to prepare, but they are actually incredibly simple to incorporate into a wonderful, personalized breakfast. Chia seeds are loaded with health advantages, but they also produce the creamiest, most delectable pudding in just five minutes when combined with milk and chilled. Take it out of the fridge in the morning, top it with your preferred toppings, and eat it as a wholesome breakfast, an energizing snack, or a cool summer treat.

Variety of chia pudding
Keep your chia pudding entirely vegan by using oat, coconut, soy, or any other kind of nut milk. Make sure to substitute maple syrup or agave for honey as your sweetener. The vanilla is completely optional, but if you want to make this pudding taste like it cost $12 when it left the store, add just a dash of it.
Method for Making Chia Pudding Recipe
Mix the milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, vanilla (if using), and salt in a medium bowl.
Covered and chilled for at least two hours or up to overnight, or until thickened. After that, serve with the toppings and mix-ins of your choosing.
We like to top ours with crunchy granola and fresh fruit juicy berries, sweet bananas, or fragrant pears all work well but feel free to pile on as much of your preferred garnish as you like. Yogurt, nut butter, dried fruit, and homemade jams are all excellent additions.
