This easy Keto Chia Seeding Pudding recipe is a high fiber, breakfast or quick snack option. It uses simple ingredients and each serving has 2g net carbs. Make this low-carb breakfast idea without eggs ahead for the next day. While it can use any milk, it’s perfect for those who are looking for a dairy-free option like chia seed pudding with coconut milk or almond milk.
Why Make This
Here are some of my top reasons to make this keto chia pudding recipe:
- Keto Diet Option: No need to wonder whether chia seed pudding is keto with this recipe. I include all the subsitutites needed to keep this sugar-free and low-carb.
- Low-carb Breakfast Idea without eggs: Every keto and low-carb breakfast doesn’t need to include eggs. This easy recipe is super filling and light on carbs. In fact, each serving has 2g net carbs.
- Delicious way to enjoy all the health benefits of chia seeds: these tiny black seeds are big in nutrients. For example, chia seeds are a great source of healthy fats, calcium, iron, dietary fiber and more. Adding them to a creamy chia seed pudding is a tasty way to enjoy these benefits.
This low carb chia seed pudding doesn’t require much. Here’s what you’ll need to gather:
- Black Chia Seeds
- Powdered Keto Sugar: I prefer powdered keto sweetener as to granular because it is easier to mix and allows the finished result to have a smoother texture with very little mixing. You can use your sweetener of choice in this recipe like monk fruit, allulose, keto maple syrup, and stevia.
- Milk: This recipe is super flexible. I chose to make this without dairy products and often use unsweetened almond milk, cashew milk, or coconut milk.
- Vanilla Extract: this adds a vanilla flavor that I enjoy. I’ve swapped this with other flavored extracts to make flavors like banana and caramel.
- Fresh Fruit: this is completely optional, but a great way to add flavor to your keto pudding.

How to Make Keto Chia Seed Pudding
Making creamy keto chia pudding is pretty easy. In fact, it takes just two simple steps.
- Add the ingredients to a mason jar, food processor, or blender.
- Mix to incorporate. Sit in the mixed refrigerator overnight.
Top Tips & FAQs
- Serve hot or cold: I personally make this ahead and serve it cold. But, if you want to make chia seed pudding in a rush, you can heat the mixture to soften the seeds quickly and eat it more like a porrige.
- Mix to incorporate, not crush: you simply want to pulse or stir the mixture with a spoon so that the extract and sweetener are incorporated.
- Sweeten to taste: I enjoy this as I would a pudding. So, I like it fairly sweet. You can adjust the sweetness to taste by adding the sweetener, stirring, and tasting.
