How To Make Chia Pudding
Making chia pudding is incredibly easy, and makes mornings simple. What more could you ask for in a recipe, right? Just prep the recipe the night before and wake up the next morning, grab a spoon and go.
Here’s all you’ll need to do:
First just stir together the water, chia seeds, vanilla, lemon zest, stevia, and salt in a medium bowl, mixing until combined. Then let the mixture refrigerate until gelled, about 2 hours.
This allows everything to harden and allows the flavors to combine for the best results. You only have to let it refrigerate 2 hours but I like to let it sit overnight to really let the ingredients soak into each other even more.
Lastly, divide the pudding into 2 individual glasses and top with the blackberries. Now, all that’s left is to serve, or store covered in the fridge for up to 3 days.
What Are the Benefits of Chia Seeds?
Did you know that chia seeds are perfect for a keto diet?! They are super low in net carbs! They are also a great source of nutrients and can provide an abundance of benefits for your brain and body.
Here are just a few of the top benefits of chia seeds:
- Nutrient-dense without all the calories.
- Packed with antioxidants
- Loaded with fiber and protein to keep you full
- Can help lower your risk for heart disease
- High in important bone nutrients, such as calcium, and magnesium

Where can I find chia seeds?
You can find chia seeds at most local grocery stores. They are typically sold in 6-12oz bags. Unfortunately finding their exact place in the grocery store can be a little tricky, as there is a fluctuation of where the product is stored at each store.
You can typically find them in the natural foods section or the aisle where beans, rice, and other whole grains are sold. A few grocery stores stock chia seeds in the supplement section with vitamins and nutrient drinks.
If you can’t seem to find them at your grocery store you can always just order them online.
Best Times to Serve Blackberry Lemon Chai Pudding
What’s great about Lemon Chia Pudding, is that it can be served almost any time you want. It’s great as an on the go breakfast, a mid-day snack, or a healthy post-workout treat.
They also make a great after-school snack for kids, to avoid having them reach for sugary sweet the minute they step in the door.
Lastly, it’s an easy recipe to adapt to a bulk serving if you want to make some cute snacks for a party. Just place each serving into a mason jar, tie a ribbon around it, and place a spoon in the middle and you’ve got yourself an easy to eat party dish.
Tips For Meal Prepping Chia Pudding:
This blackberry lemon chia pudding is perfect for meal prepping your way through the week. Here are just a few tips to make sure your prep is as simple as possible!
Use airtight containers: If you want to make a few of these at once to eat throughout the week, you’ll need to be sure they are properly stored. Store each serving in an airtight container of your choice, and place in the refrigerator.
Make a double batch: A single batch only makes 2, so if you want enough to get you through almost the whole work week, you’ll need to make a double batch. The instructions will be the same, you’ll just use double of each ingredient.
Measure out serving sizes: To be sure you’re not eating more than one serving, be sure to measure out your servings into equal parts. That way you aren’t left with only a few bites left on day 4 when you thought you would still have a whole other serving.
