Maple Cinnamon Chia Pudding

Despite their size, chia seeds pack a dense nutritional punch, making them a perfect start to energize your day and your workouts. These tiny, protein rich, high in fiber seeds are prized for their ability to absorb 10 times their weight in liquid while forming a gel like consistency, similar to tapioca pudding or agar-based bubble or boba teas. Used as a thickening agent, chai seeds are a popular egg alternative in vegan baking or as a binder for veggie burgers. If you’re new to chia seeds, allow yourself time to adjust to their unique texture, it grows on you. Experiment with incorporating chia into your diet by adding the seeds to yogurt, smoothies, oatmeal or granola and #changeyourbuds.

  • ½ cup almond milk plus more if needed, or other non-dairy milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon no sugar added sunflower or peanut butter
  • ½ banana sliced, or berries
  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts


  • Combine the almond milk, vanilla, maple syrup, cinnamon and chia seeds in a small bowl. Whisk with a fork and set aside for 5 minutes. Whisk and repeat after another 5 minutes, to prevent clumping. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, refrigerate and chill at least two hours or overnight.
  • Add the nut butter, stirring until combined. Adjust the consistency with a few tablespoons of almond milk, if needed.
  • Top with the sliced banana and walnuts. Or, top with blueberries if you are on a lower potassium diet.
