In addition to being ridiculously delicious, oat milk chia pudding is full of nutrition.

The amount of fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in this breakfast, snack, or dessert is significant.

It doesn’t get any simpler than this, especially since it’s suitable for meal preparation, with just two basic components – chia seeds and oat milk.

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are healthy fats that support heart and joint health as well as memory.

In addition to providing heart-healthy omega-3s, chia seeds also maintain normal blood sugar levels and are rich in antioxidants and minerals.

These tiny black or white edible seeds of a flowering plant from the mint family are also abundant in potassium, iron, and calcium.

The soluble fiber in chia seeds can aid in weight loss by making you feel full and can also manage constipation.

Chia seeds also can take up to 10 times their weight in liquid.

Simply soaking these little seeds in your preferred milk will turn them into a pudding that resembles tapioca.

A good rule of thumb is 1⁄4 cup of chia seeds soaked in 1 cup of liquid.

The liquid can be either milk or water. Soaked chia seeds will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Moderation is important, as consuming too many chia seeds could have undesirable effects.

To avoid this, begin by consuming 1 ounce (28 grams) per day at first, then gradually increase your intake as you get more tolerant.

One ounce of chia seeds already amounts to 42% of the daily fiber recommendation for a healthy diet.

Oat Milk

Oat Milk is a gluten-free, plant milk derived from whole oat grains.

It’s also soy-free making it significantly easier on the environment than other plant-based substitutes.

Some brands fortify their milk with vitamins B12, A, and D because oat milk generally has fewer nutrients than regular dairy.

I love that it provides a creamier consistency than most dairy substitutes.

It makes the perfect companion for chia seeds to achieve a more concentrated pudding decadence.

How to make oat milk chia pudding

The chia seeds need time to soften and soak up the oat milk.

Pour the desired amount of oat milk chia pudding into a bowl.

The consistency should be similar to regular pudding.

If it’s very runny it’s likely too much oat milk was used however it will still be edible.
