I have been making chia pudding for over nine years now but I don’t think I’ve ever shared my recipe and it’s probably because it is so simple and really just requires two main ingredients -- chia seeds and almond milk! However, I have tried many different recipes and they are not all the same. I like my chia pudding to be really thick in consistency and therefore I tend to stick to the ratios below. I hope you like them too!

For this recipe, if I was having it for breakfast I would have the entire serving, however, you can also split it in half to have as in between meals/ on the go snacks! This chia pudding also pairs beautifully with greek yogurt and fruit! For this recipe I paired it with fresh cherries since they are in season and the juicy and tartness pairs well with the creamy chia pudding. Almond butter offers a great healthy fat in the recipe and I find it really tastes well with cherries but feel free to swap in peanut/cashew/sunflower butter based on your own preference!

You'll need three tablespoons of chia seeds for this recipe!

Give it a good mix if you notice your chia seeds are clumping together before you place your jar in the fridge!

I love how thick and creamy this chia pudding turns out!

Add your cherries and almond butter!
