Keto Pantry Essentials Chia in a pudding
If you haven't tried chia puddings then you need to! While at first I found them a little freaky these are totally delicious and good for you too.

I have a new found appreciation and love for chia pudding!  Have you tried any yet at all?

At first when trying a chia pudding (mind you this was a couple of years ago) I found the texture off-putting and the flavour ghastly!  Well flavour is something I can fix in anything, but texture I think is a learned thing.  Not growing up eating anything like this, and detesting a rice pudding, I was a little slow to warm to the humble chia pudding.

So some of the flavours I have played with include:


Matcha – for those inexperienced with matcha, start with a 1/2 tsp and work your way up.  It can be strong and polarising to those not used to its flavour.

Matcha is a powdered green tea.  Part of the joy of drinking matcha is the whole ceremony of whisking it with your little stumpy bamboo whisk in an overpriced (at least in Australia) clay cup/bowl and drinking straight form the clay.  I am totally in love with everything tea and ceremony related.

Speaking of fighting off the kids with your chia puds, how about a chocolate one?  For a dessert version grate some dark chocolate onto the top and double cream and stir it in!  Or freeze it into delicious frozen chocolate pudding pops.  So good!


Chai Chia pudding, now that is a play on letters isn’t it! For all the Chai lovers this spiced and creamy pudding will be a favourite choice.  If you like your chia creamy feel free to use thickened cream in place of the “milks”, or macadamia milk is delicious too!

Another delicious recipe with Sukrin in it.  For an extra decadence squeeze a little Sukrin Gold Fibre syrup over the top.

    Oh yes, I have been crushing on chia seed puddings lately and never thought to make one with peanut butter. OMG I can’t wait to make this. Thanks for the recipe ideas with the different flavors.
