Jen’s chia pudding recipe

To make the chia pudding

¾ Cup          chia seeds (white or black or a mix but preferrably organic)

5 Cups         almond milk (recipe & instructions below)

1                  vanilla bean (or 1 tsp vanilla powder)

2 Tbsp         raw honey (or adjust to your taste)

1 tsp            cinnamon (or adjust to your taste)

pile of almonds            squeezing Nut Milk Bag                 

  • In a blender, blend the almond milk, vanilla bean, honey and cinnamon on high for 10 – 15 seconds.

*Please note - If using a high powered blender you can put the whole vanilla bean in after chopping off the ends and cutting it into a few pieces.  If not using a high powered blender then cut the pod in half lengthwise and scrape out the tiny seeds from inside the vanilla pod or else use vanilla powder.  Another option is to add the vanilla pod in with the almonds when making the almond milk and then it will be strained through the Nut Milk Bag with the almonds (see almond milk recipe towards bottom of page).

  • Put chia seeds in a large mixing bowl, add contents from the blender and whisk well.


  • Allow to sit for 10 to 15 minutes and whisk regularly during that time.  You will be surprised how much liquid the chia seeds soak up!


  • Serve as is or garnish with shredded coconut and cinnamon and your choice of fruit topping.  I love banana and/or blueberries, but for a Christmas touch you can use cherries.

Makes 6 – 8 servings and keeps in the fridge for 3-4 days.

To make the almond milk (makes 5 cups)

1 Cup           raw almonds soaked in water for 6 hours or overnight

5 Cups         filtered water

  • Strain the almonds, rinse well, and strain again.


  • They will have now swelled to be roughly 1 1/2 cups.  Place these in the blender (preferably a high powered one) and add 5 cups of filtered water.


  • Blend on high just long enough to break down the almonds to make the milk.  Place your Nut Milk Bag over a jug and strain the contents of the blender through the bag.
