Vanilla Maple Chia Pudding





When it’s cold outside I crave something more substantial than just fresh fruit and green smoothies for breakfast. This Vanilla Maple Chia Pudding is a great breakfast option if you don’t have a lot of time in the morning because you can prepare it the night before and it will keep you full & satisfied longer. I love having it as a pre-workout snack as well, since it’s so high in plant-based protein. For extra flavor, you can top it with fresh fruit and a couple of Cacao Nib Cookie Dough Bites!

Vanilla Maple Chia Pudding

SERVES: 2 people

EQUIPMENT: blender, mixing bowl


2 cups of almond milk
2 tablespoons of maple syrup
1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon of vanilla powder
2 large pinches of Himalayan crystal salt or sea salt
6 tablespoons of chia seeds


  1. Combine almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, vanilla powder and salt in the blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Now take your mixing bowl and combine the almond milk with the chia seeds. Stir well and let them rest for a few minutes.
  3. After three to four minutes, stir the mixture with a fork until everything is well combined. Place in the refrigerator.
  4. After about 1 hour the chia seeds will have soaked up most of the liquid, turning the mixture into a creamy pudding.


  • This Vanilla Maple Chia Pudding will stay fresh for at least 3 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator if you use fresh almond milk (or longer with store-bought almond milk). 
  • You can devour this breakast right away or add superfoods & fresh fruit of your choice. I used goji berries, raspberries, banana slices, cacao nibs and hemp seeds for an extra protein boost.
  • Chia seeds are really high in plant-based protein and healthy omega 3 fats. They are also packed with essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium and phosphor.

Now I would love to hear from you! What’s your favorite breakfast when you don’t have a lot of time? Do you prefer a quick smoothie, chia pudding, oatmeal, protein shakes…? Let me know by leaving a comment down below.
