Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • Quick Meal Prep: You only need six ingredients and less than 10 minutes of prep. Plus, you can make it in bulk for a quick and healthy snack throughout the week.
  • Nutrient Dense: Chia seeds are loaded with magnesium, manganese, and phosphorus, which are great for bone and cardiovascular health (1, 2, 3).
  • Keeps You Full: This pudding has 27 grams of protein, 12 grams of fiber, and 21 grams of healthy fats to keep you fuller longer (4, 5).

Here’s What You Need

  • Chia Seeds: To absorb the nut milk and turn it into a pudding-like texture.
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk: This is the liquid that will turn your chia seeds into a creamy pudding. (Check out this Instagram Reel to learn how to make your own almond milk.)
  • Pure Maple Syrup: To add natural sweetness to the chia pudding.
  • Vanilla Extract: To add vanilla flavoring to the chia pudding.
  • NativePath Collagen: To add additional protein and bone-boosting collagen to the pudding.
  • Pink Himalayan Salt: To bring out a little more flavor and add a healthy sprinkle of sodium.


  • The fun part of chia pudding is the toppings you can add…choose from fresh berries, cacao nibs, a dash of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, a dollop of nut or seed butter, or some granola.
