This maple vanilla chia pudding is an easy, delicious way to start your morning. It’s vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free and you can take a jar on-the-go for a quick breakfast or snack. The topping possibilities are endless – fresh fruit, granola, coconut, nut butter, or whatever else your heart desires!



  • 1 cup nondairy milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup black chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste (or extract)
  • Pinch fine salt


  1. Whisk all ingredients together in a small mixing bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes, then whisk again as chia seeds start to absorb the liquid. 
  2. Place in refrigerator and let thicken for at least 30 minutes (preferably 2 hours). 
  3. Transfer to on-the-go container (optional) and top with fresh berries and granola. Enjoy!
