On the list of ways to maximize your mornings, making chia seed pudding for breakfast ranks right up there—somewhere between sleep training and that first supercharged cup of coffee. Just 10–15 minutes of prep time the night before, and it’ll be waiting for you the next day à la every cooking show you watched as a kid.

But better than the instant gratification they can bring to your bleary-eyed morning routine, chia seeds are a major source of omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, as well as protein and fiber (which will keep you feeling full longer). Plus, these puddings are just plain pretty—hence why you’ll find so many double tap-worthy iterations on Instagram these days. The only thing better than scrolling through them on your feed? Finding one in your fridge.

Here are 10 simple, super-satisfying chia seed pudding recipes to try at home. 
Get Started

5. Carrot Cake Chia Pudding

You might not immediately think of adding carrots to chia pudding, but Emilie Hebert had the genius idea to replicate the flavors of carrot cake with raisins, pecans, and coconut flakes.

6. Raspberry and Coconut Chia Pudding

With only four core ingredients, this berry pudding is super easy to put together. The only other step? Spreading on coconut yogurt and sprinkling a handful of cocoa nibs, NBD.

10. Whipped Chocolate Chia Pudding

Chocolate pudding is a classic, but this one’s packed with unexpected ingredients—like prunes and tahini—in addition to chia seeds, raw cacao powder, and almond butter.

For two more ways to work with the superfood: Learn how to make a blue ombré chia parfait that’s almost too pretty to eat, or bake a vegan squash blossom pizza, which uses the high-fibe seeds as a key ingredient.
