This Chia Seed Pudding Is An Ideal Make-Ahead Breakfast


If you are super busy in the mornings, the best way to set yourself up for success is by prepping a really satisfying and nutritious breakfast the night before. This chia seed pudding is perfect for it (also our overnight oats recipe).

Chia seed pudding makes an excellent plant-based breakfast, dessert, snack, or pre-workout meal. Chia seeds are nutritional powerhouses loaded with fiber, protein, antioxidants, and nutrients like zinc and B vitamins. Add in the nut milk and berries, with optional cacao, Daily Shake, or sweetener, and you’ve got yourself a great tasting clean meal.

serves 2
prep time: 30 minutes


For the “Milk”:

1 cup hazelnuts

3 cups water

1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar

pinch of sea salt

For the pudding:

6 tablespoons chia seeds

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon vanilla

Optional garnish:

raw cacao nibs

fresh berries


First make the nut milk by blending the hazelnuts, water, salt, and palm sugar until smooth, for about 45 seconds.


Pour through a fine mesh strainer and save the pulp for another use if you wish.

Place the chia seeds in a mixing bowl, then add half the hazelnut milk.

Stir to combine and allow the chia to absorb the liquid, adding more as needed to plump up the seeds. I prefer mine a bit more on the thinner side, while others enjoy a thick pudding, it’s totally up to you.

After it’s been sitting for about 20-30 minutes, stir in the spices to taste, adding any additional sweetener (optional).


Divide the pudding into two bowls and garnish with anything you like. Our two favorites are cacao nibs and/or fresh wild berries.
