Dairy-free, vegan and refined sugar-free, this Oat Milk Chia Pudding is a healthy, make ahead breakfast with just 3 ingredients and 3 minutes prep time! 


  • 2 cups unsweetened oat milk
  • 7 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup


  1. Add the oat milk, chia seeds and maple syrup to a large bowl and whisk until the chia seeds are incorporated. (You can also add everything to a large mason jar, cover with the lid and shake well).
  2. Cover the bowl and place in the fridge for an hour. 
  3. Remove and whisk together again. (This will get any chia seeds that sunk to the bottom of the bowl or clumped together).
  4. Place in the fridge for another 3 hours, or overnight. (The mixture should look thickened and set).
  5. Portion into bowls and serve with fruit and granola.


  1. If you don’t like the texture of chia seeds, try grinding them up before mixing them with the milk or you can blend the chia seeds with the milk.
  2. For a thicker pudding, add another tablespoon of chia seeds. For a thinner pudding, use fewer chia seeds or add more milk.
  3. To make sure the chia seeds are evenly mixed into the pudding, make sure the ingredients are fully whisked together.
  4. Feel free to add more sweetener. You can also add some vanilla extract for additional flavour, or whisk in some ground cinnamon.
  5. If you use sweetened oat milk, you may want to reduce the amount of maple syrup you add to the recipe.
