Making procedure (3 simple steps)

The Frist step is stirring together your chia seeds and liquid milk in a jar or a bowl. In 3 Tablespoon, chia seeds mixed with 1 cup of milk. Desiring your thickness of chia pudding, you can add 4 Teaspoon seeds in 1 cup of liquid.
- After mixing chia pudding, let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes and then shake it. Do it twice or more. If they’re a clump of seeds, then break it and mix it properly. Then store in the fridge to set hours 1-2 or overnight.
- Chia pudding should be nice and thick, not liquid. If it isn’t just thick as your desire then you can add some extra seeds and refrigerate it for again 1-2 hours.

Chia pudding ratio
After I finished other different ways to make a chia pudding, I’ve found that 3-4 tea teaspoon chia seeds with 1 cup of liquid are best for perfect consistency.
For consistency, it’s totally up to you based on your preference and dietary restriction. Instead, you can use almond milk, coconut milk, cashew milk. It can give your chia pudding an extra creamy consistency that looks nice. It would be better for breakfast, snacks, or even dessert if you use full-fat canned milk. It is also helpful for you if you follow the keto diet or paleo.
Chia pudding Tips:
If you see your chia pudding doesn’t set properly or turn out correctly, probably a few things go wrong. Here are some tips that will be helpful for you.
- First, make sure you have the right chia seeds, not like other types of chia seeds. In the market, you can find white and black chia seeds. Those both are well for making a perfect chia pudding. Not other chia seeds will work. Before you purchase check the expired date. Is it old or new? It’s also important. Many people are complaining about Trader joe’s chia has not properly absorbed the liquid like the other brands. If your problem is with Trader joe’s brand, then switch to another brand.
- Make sure you have a good stir while mixing these. Mix it up to 5-10 minutes. It will help break the clump of chia seed and give you a smooth texture and well mixed. If you didn’t do it properly, sometimes all chia seeds are clump in the bottom, and it will leave you with lots of liquid at the top instead of a well-combined creamy pudding.
- By doing all those things, you saw your chia pudding isn’t enough thickness, then you can add some extra chia seed for change. Or you can use thicker milk. Full-fat canned coconut milk will give an ultra-thickness, creamy consistency to your chia pudding.
- As you desire, if you don’t like the texture of chia pudding, you can blend it with the machine. After finished, your chia pudding will smooth instead of normal pudding.
