Super Simple Overnight Chia Pudding

Chia puddings are the perfect breakfast, lunchbox and too-tired-to-cook-real-dinner meal, all in one. Even better - this recipe takes 5 minutes to prep and can store in the fridge for up to a week. Chia seeds themselves pack a nutritious, low-calorie punch - typically containing 20% protein, 34% oil, 25% fiber, plus significant levels of antioxidants.

Serves 4.


  • 6 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 2 cups milk (coconut works best – but any is fine)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract/essence
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup (optional)




  1. Place all the ingredients into a large jar and shake well.
  2. Place in the fridge for at least 12 hours (24 is even better).
  3. Before serving, give the pudding a good stir and sprinkle on your favourite toppings. Pop straight into lunchboxes in smaller jars. 
  4. Keep in the fridge for up to one week (depending on milk age) and enjoy!
