Prep Time 5 minutes
Soak Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 5 minutes
Servings 1


  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 cup soy milk, plain and unsweetened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional Toppings

  • Fresh fruit
  • Maple syrup, to taste
  • Nut or seed butter
  • shredded coconut


  • Start by mixing your chia seeds, soy milk and vanilla extract in a jar or sealable container. Refrigerate covered for at least two hours or until the chia seeds have absorbed the liquid.
  • Serve with your toppings of choice.


I recommend stirring the chia pudding after it soaked for 15 minutes. This will prevent the chia seeds from staying at the bottom of the jar and will help the seeds absorb all the liquid.
If the chia pudding is too thick to your liking, add more milk to thin. If it’s too thin, add more chia seeds and let it sit for another 30 minutes to thicken.
You can change the flavor of this chia pudding by using flavored and sweetened soy milk if preferred. The soy milk is used to add protein to the recipe. You can use a different plant-based milk if preferred, but keep in mind that it will affect the protein content of the chia pudding.
