What is a Keto Ground chia seed pudding?
You probably have heard of chocolate chia seed pudding. Chia seeds are the perfect little gem to create healthy keto pudding without using carb-loaded thickeners like cornflour. The classic chia seed pudding consists of soaking chia seeds overnight in almond milk.
Are chia seeds keto?
Yes, chia seeds are a good keto-friendly ingredient. It contains 42 grams of carb per 100 grams, but a whopping 34.4 grams of fiber, giving only 7.6 grams of net carbs per 100 grams. When you consider that chia seeds are used sparingly in recipes, this is a good low-carb ingredient!
Is this chia seed pudding keto?
Absolutely! With unsweetened almond milk, low-carb chia seeds, peanut butter, and unsweetened cocoa powder, this keto chia seed pudding comes at 4.9 grams of net carbs per serving!
To make your regular chia pudding keto, all you have to do is swap the sweetener (typically maple syrup) for a low-carb one (sugar-free maple syrup) and use low-carb milk like almond milk.
While it is a delicious keto pudding, some people are not fans of the gooey seeds in their pudding. Ground chia seed pudding is a smooth instant pudding with no lumps and no waiting time.
Indeed, this recipe is an instant chocolate chia pudding recipe to fix your sugar craving in a sec.

How to make smooth chocolate chia pudding?
The trick to make a deliciously smooth, creamy keto pudding with no bites of seeds is to grind the chia seeds. Consequently, you will have:
- No waiting/ soaking time – enjoy the recipe within 10 minutes.
- No lumpy, slippery seed texture
Plus, all you need to make this lovely keto dessert or keto breakfast are only 7 ingredients:
- Chia seeds – black or white or a combo of both. Any kind of chia seeds will work well. You can buy whole chia seeds and grind them in a grinder or blender. Or directly buy ground chia seed. I am providing both measurements in the recipe below as ground chia seeds make a larger volume than raw chia seeds.
Watch my story to see how to make this recipe in a different format.
- Almond milk – I use unsweetened Almond Milk. I love it! It is low calories, natural and vegan.
- Peanut butter – I love runny unsalted natural peanut butter, no sugar added. Feel free to use any other nut butter flavor. If you are paleo, try runny almond butter or cashew butter.
- Unsweetened cocoa powder – this adds the lovely chocolate flavor without sugar added.
- Sugar-free liquid sweetener – as always, I love to use maple-flavored sugar-free syrup. I am using a brand that can be used as the same amount as regular maple syrup. it means that if you are not on a sugar-free diet, you can replace it with the same amount of natural maple syrup in the recipe. You can also use sugar-free crystal sweeteners like erythritol or monk fruit. I would recommend using the same amount as for liquid syrup, 1/4 cup, and to balance the texture by adding an extra 2-4 tablespoons of almond milk. Stop when it reaches your favorite texture.
- Vanilla – optional but always better with it
- Salt – same, optional but I love that extra pinch of salt to balance the chocolate flavor. Omit if you are using salted peanut butter.
Fastest low-carb dessert ever! This is an instant keto chia seed pudding
YES, you can eat this keto chia pudding straight away. No need to soak overnight or wait for hours! As you ground the chia seeds, at first, they deliver their gel-power instantly.
Your pudding can be enjoyed as fast as 10 minutes. Of course, it tastes even better if stored for 1 hour in the fridge as the pudding will get fresher and slightly thicker.
But if you are craving dessert, this is the fastest low-carb dessert ever!
Play with the texture
The recipe below creates a smooth chocolate peanut butter pudding, not overly sticky or liquid. Just the right balance.
If you love yours thicker and chewier, add less milk – decrease by 1/4 cup and add an extra tablespoon at a time, blend, taste, and see!
That’s the best way to create the perfect texture for your tastebud! Of course, for a runnier pudding, add more milk!
I hope you enjoy this lovely instant chia seed pudding recipe made with almond milk.
