What’s a low carb chia seed pudding?

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

A low carb chia seed pudding is a easy recipe made of 3 basic ingredients:

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

4 flavors to choose from

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 times to appreciate the texture of soaked chia seed, but since I do I created 4 amazing pudding flavors that I am sharing with you today.

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 don’t evaporate in no-bake recipes and had a weird flavor, plus this is 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 is cream and it has the perfect chocolate sweet flavor you expect using only unsweetened cocoa powder.

Chocolate chia seed pudding

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

Almond Joy 

I am sure there is 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 recipe that remind me the flavor of my favorite food like this pudding. This almond joy pudding has all the flavor of coconut, almond and chocolate you expect.

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

Ingredients

Vanilla chia seed pudding

Chocolate chia seed pudding

Almond joy chia seed pudding

Coconut lime chia seed pudding

Instructions

  • 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 on glass mason jar for each flavor (minimum 2 cup, 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, silvered 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 serve.

  1. 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

  2. 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.

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