Healthy Chia Pudding Recipes

Making big changes in how you eat is something to be PROUD of because it can affect your whole routine. You are absolutely AMAZING for making these changes on your own! And, I’m excited to share with you these healthy chia pudding recipes. They are fantastic to help keep you on track when rebalancing hormones and gut health issues if you’re able to tolerate them with whatever you have going on.

Here’s the thing. If you’re struggling and feel like you’ve “slipped up” once or twice, don’t dwell on it. JUST KEEP MOVING FORWARD. I personally used to spend wayyyyy too much time dwelling on the mistakes I made with food. As a result, this was hugely stressful. Have you seen this article about not dwelling on setbacks? It’s a good one. Check it out HERE!

Anyways, remember that it’s about doing better. And not about being “perfect.” Over time, know that it definitely will get easier!

I have a shocking stat, that when I read it, I literally felt my jaw drop. It’s about how much sugar we actually eat every day.

First, for some context: there are literally DOZENS of different recommendations for how much added sugar we should eat every day, which is about 5-10%. If you’re striving to follow a lower carb – or a Ketogenic type approach, then note that recommendations will be even lower than this. If you’re following a Carnivore approach, then obviously Chia Pudding would not be a good option. You can however use Greek Yogurt or Ricotta for a “pudding” type option – or eggs if you tolerate them as well.

The average American consumes 17 teaspoons of sugar daily. First, I know that you’re not average 🙂 Next, this is why being aware is so important. And if you’ve been at the top end of the sugar consumption scale for any length of time, it also explains why it takes some effort to eliminate added sugars from your everyday diet.  Anyone who has ever detoxed from sugar knows that it can be challenging to say the least. And, it’s healthy chia pudding recipes like these that will help you bridge the gap to success! 

Eventually, you’ll find that those added-sugar treats that you used to love actually taste TOO SWEET. And, you will wonder how you ever ate them in the first place! 

In the meantime, I recommend always having healthy no-added-sugar snacks on-hand like these amazing healthy chia pudding recipes because they will keep you on-track. Trust me, it’s better to have them and not need them than need them and not have them!

These chia pudding recipes (I have two versions for you) are a make-ahead recipe that lasts 4 days in the refrigerator, so you can feel free to double it. Tons of fiber and good fats which can help keep your blood sugar stable. 

Simple Keto Chia Pudding
1 c. unsweetened nut milk
1 scoop of a “one ingredient” protein
2-3 tbsp (or more if you like it thicker) chia seeds
Add ingredients to a jar. 
Stir and refrigerate. 

Then stir again a few times before eating. You can also blend the protein into the nut milk first and then do the other steps! Takes less than 5 minutes to prep this the night before for a grab and go option!  

Banana Low Carb PB Chia Pudding
(2 servings)
1 “green-tipped” banana, sliced
1 cup (250 ml) unsweetened almond milk 
¼ cup (40 g) chia seeds
½ cup (140 g) plain Greek yogurt (optional)
Dash vanilla extract
2 tbsp *all-natural* peanut butter
Option: protein powder instead of Greek yogurt

In a bowl, stir together the banana, unsweetened milk, chia seeds, yogurt and vanilla.

Divide equally into 2 containers (such as mason jars). Refrigerate at least 4 hours, or as long as 4 days.

Before eating, stir 1 tbsp peanut butter into each serving. 

This is your Low Carb or clean eating option

And last and not least… another Keto option just like the Simple Chia Pudding recipe above!

Chocolate Almond Keto Chia Pudding
(2 servings)
1 cup (250 ml) unsweetened almond milk (unsweetened)
2 scoops Chocolate Protein Powder (grassfed beef protein is my GO-TO!)
¼ cup (40 g) chia seeds
½ cup (140 g) plain Greek yogurt (optional)
Dash almond extract
2 tbsp *all-natural* almond butter

In a bowl, protein powder, unsweetened milk, chia seeds, yogurt and vanilla. You can also use a blender – or use a blender for the protein powder and milk and then transfer into a bowl to complete the mixing.

Divide equally into 2 containers (such as mason jars). Refrigerate at least 4 hours, or as long as 4 days.

Higher fat option… before eating, stir 1 tbsp almond butter into each serving.
