Keto Chia Pudding

What’s a keto chia pudding?

Chia seed puddings are by definition very low in carbs. Chia seeds contain 46% carbs from which 83% are fiber. As fiber doesn’t count On a low-carb diet – you should count net carbs: carbs takeaway fiber – the amount of net carbs in chia seed is very low.

How to make chia pudding?

Chia seed pudding is an easy breakfast recipe made with only 3 basic ingredients. Let me tell you more about this below.

  • Chia seed – you can use white chia seed or black chia seeds, both work. There’s no nutritional difference between them, it’s only aesthetic preference. If you don’t like black grey lumps, choose the white one.
  • Unsweetened almond milk.  Almond milk doesn’t contain lactose, the natural sugar occurring in milk. Therefore it’s the best option to avoid carbs and sugar in your pudding
  • Sugar-free crystal sweetener. There are many options like a blend of Monk fruit Stevia or a blend of erythritol stevia. Alternatively, you can also use stevia drops. However, pure stevia must be used in a smaller amount 2-4 drops, as it’s highly concentrated and adds bitterness.

Is Almond Milk Keto?

Almond Milk is a very good replacement for regular cow milk if you are on a keto diet or low-carb diet. It is made by simply soaking grounded almonds in water.

Because almonds naturally contain very few carbs, standard unsweetened Almond Milk has only 1.4g of net carbs per cup, which means you can safely have a couple of cups without leaving ketosis.

How to flavor chia pudding?

I absolutely adore pudding with chia! Earlier in the year, I shared with you my ground chia seed chocolate pudding recipe, a delicious creamy low-carb breakfast pudding with no lumps. It took me some time to appreciate the texture of soaked chia seed, but now that I do, I created 4 amazing pudding flavors that I am sharing with you today.

How to make chia seed pudding?

Vanilla chia seed pudding

Vanilla is the most classic flavor, the fastest to prepare too as I am using unsweetened vanilla almond milk from Almond Breeze which means you need only 3 ingredients to make this flavor. Their Vanilla almond milk has no sugar, a delicious vanilla flavor, and creamy texture. I like this milk option as it avoids the use of vanilla essence that often contains alcohol. Alcohol doesn’t evaporate in no-bake recipes and has a weird flavor, plus it’s not good for your health either.

I love to top up my vanilla pudding with peanut butter, chopped sugar-free dark chocolate, and fresh raspberries.

Chocolate chia seed pudding

I am a chocolate lover if you are one too you will love this chocolate chia seed pudding with almond milk. It’s creamy and it has the perfect chocolate sweet flavor you’re expecting using only unsweetened cocoa powder.

Chocolate chia pudding

I love to top up my chocolate chia seed pudding with chopped sugar-free chocolate or 85% cocoa dark chocolate and sliced almonds.

Making the Almond Joy 

I am sure there are many almond joy lovers around here! One reason I created this recipe flavor is that I have been a lover of almond joy bars in the past. Obviously, since I don’t eat sugar anymore I don’t eat those bars.

As a result, I love to create recipes that remind me of the flavor of my favorite food like this pudding. This almond joy pudding has all the flavors of coconut, almond, and chocolate you expect.

Almond joy chia seed pudding

I love to top up my almond joy pudding with slivered almonds, sugar-free chocolate chips, and unsweetened shredded coconut.

Coconut Lime 

On the other hand, I also love fresh tropical flavor for breakfast. So this coconut lime pudding is my option for summer.

  • Start the recipe the day before, or at least 6-8 hours before eating. 
  • Choose the chia seed pudding flavors you want to make and prepare in a glass mason jar for each flavor (minimum 2 cups, 500 ml volume).
  • Start adding the ingredients in this order: chia seeds, sugar-free sweetener, other dry ingredients, and unsweetened milk at last.
  • Close the jar, shake until all the seeds are evenly distributed into the liquid.
  • Place the jar in the fridge. 
  • I recommend you check the pudding after 30 minutes, open, give a good stir to avoid the seed to coagulate to the bottom of the jar. 
  • Close the jar and let in the fridge for a minimum of 6 hours or overnight. 
  • The next day serve 1/2 of the jar as a breakfast or 1/4 of the jar as a snack/dessert.
  • Serve with your favorite toppings like nut butter, slivered almonds, sliced almonds, sugar-free chocolate chips, lime zest, or unsweetened coconut.
  • Store in the fridge up to 4 days in the sealed glass jar. I don't recommend freezing chia pudding.
Nutrition panel is for one serve of the vanilla chia seed pudding. One jar/recipe makes 2 servings. Net carbs: 3.4 grams per serving.

  1. That Almond Breeze you linked to and this is sponsored by has carrageenan in it, which is not a healthy ingred. Thanks for the recipes. I will use them with healthier almond milk.

    • I live in New Zealand and I bought them from a store called Briscoes. Not sure it helps if you are outside NZ, but they are great to store food for long. Enjoy the recipe, XOXO Carine

  2. The recipe says that the vanilla pudding has 17 carbs, but when I put it into the Carb Master app, the ingredients seem to be only 3 carbs. Am I doing something wrong?

    • It depends of which one you intend to make. If you do the classic one that includes only chia seed, unsweetened almond milk yes the net carbs per serve is 4g. But if you add some other ingredients like cocoa powder for the chocolate version, or desiccated coconut the carbs get higher. Also note that the blog nutrition panel shows carbs as total carbs then fiber. Or your apps shows net carbs (which is what you are supposed to count on keto diet). But it means that in all my recipes you must do the maths to get the net carbs it is total carbs takeaway fiber. Hope it makes sense, I will update the panel for the classic pudding to make things easier for all. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

  3. So disappointed! I craved pudding, and found the pudding recipe with Chia seeds and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. It’s been almost 30 hours, and it is still not set up. What did I do wrong?

    • You may have some issue with your chia seeds, too old or you didn’t shake the jar well to bring them in contact with the liquid. It is the only way it could not work, it is a pretty simple recipe and 3 tablespoons of chia seeds always create a pudding like texture when in contact with 1 cup of liquid. I hope you get better result next time. XOXO Carine.

      • If you place all the ingredients in a blender and blend for about 3 minutes (I pulverize them) it will thicken up right there in the blender about 80% of the way and it will continue to increase in thickness in the fridge in a few hours. I also use 2-3 Tablespoons of Monfruit sweetener (granules) in mine. It is a matter of taste and the particular brand one uses. If one opts not to use the blender method then in my experience it requires whisking the ingredients for several minutes before refrigerating overnight.

    • Vanilla and strawberry is a perfect combo! Thanks for trying my recipes and sharing with me your lovely feedbacks. XOXO Carine.
