chia seed protein pudding recipe


  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
  • 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder (e.g., whey, plant-based)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of sweetener (e.g., honey, maple syrup, stevia) to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • Fresh berries or sliced fruit for topping (e.g., strawberries, blueberries, banana)


  1. In a bowl or jar, combine the chia seeds, almond milk, protein powder, sweetener, and vanilla extract (if using). Stir well to ensure the ingredients are fully combined.
  2. Cover the bowl or jar and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight. This allows the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and thicken the pudding.
  3. After the pudding has set, give it a good stir to break up any clumps. If it’s too thick for your liking, you can add a little more almond milk to achieve your desired consistency.
  4. Taste the pudding and adjust the sweetness if needed by adding more sweetener.
  5. Serve the chia seed protein pudding in a bowl or glass and top with fresh berries or sliced fruit.
