Chia Pudding 101


The first step to any Chia Pudding creation begins with the perfect chia pudding of course. So let's start with the basics: the perfect chia pudding recipe. You'll first want to make sure you have some Organic Chia Seeds on hand. After that all you need is your favorite milk. We recommend plant-based milk, plus a little bit of vanilla extract, cinnamon and maple syrup for taste.

  • 3 cups of your favorite milk
  • 2/3 cup Mamma Chia Organic Chia Seeds
  • 2 tsp organic vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp organic cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp organic maple syrup or your favorite sweetener to taste


  • Whisk all ingredients together in a large bowl. Chill for at least 1 hour (for best results, we recommend chilling overnight). These measurements make four servings, so adjust as necessary.
