For the chia pudding:

3 cups unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup chia seeds
¼ cup gluten free steel cut oats (optional if want extra thickness)
1-3 Tbsp of pure maple syrup, to taste

Suggested toppings
Fresh or frozen fruit
Coconut flakes
Pure maple syrup
Nuts and seeds
Banana Puree


  1. Whisk the almond milk, chia seeds, and maple syrup together in a large bowl (or use large mason jar and shake). Let sit for 5-10 minutes and then whisk again (this just helps prevent clumping).
  2. Cover and chill in the fridge for 2.5-3 hours, or overnight. It helps to stir the mixture every so often during this time, but don't worry if you can't.
  3. Stir well (or shake mason jar) before serving. Portion into bowl(s) and add your desired toppings. Leftovers will keep in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.
