How To Make Keto Chia Pudding
The trick to making a deliciously smooth, creamy keto chia 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.
- 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 a 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 in 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.
Making 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!
Playing With Textures
The recipe 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 tastebuds! Of course, for a runnier pudding, add more milk!
I hope you enjoy this lovely instant chia seed pudding recipe made with almond milk.
You can store this keto chocolate chia pudding for up to 4 days in the fridge in an airtight container.
I don’t recommend freezing it, but you can put it in your freezer and eat it cold, slightly frozen for an ice-cream-like experience.
