If you’ve never had chia pudding, it is reminiscent of tapioca and can be eaten as a breakfast, a dessert, and even a snack.

Chia seeds were staple in the ancient Aztec and Maya diets, and that seeds have been touted for their health benefits for centuries. In fact, “chia” is the ancient Mayan word for “strength.”

Technically there are many ways you can add chia seeds to your diet but this chia pudding with oat milk is one of my favorites.

The seeds are absorbing up to 12 times their weight in liquid when soaked and developing a coating that gives chia-based foods and beverages a distinctive gel texture.

One of the things I love about it is that you can make it ahead of time.

I do meal prep for the week on Sundays and having little jars of chia pudding are so easy to make and quick to grab. Best of all, it will keep in the fridge for a week.

You can mix things up by topping the pudding with fresh fruit or dried fruit, nuts, shredded coconut, granola, and more.

I personally prefer neutral flavor full fat oat milks that taste and have the texture of regular milk. However, any oat milk will do.
