Chia pudding is my go-to dessert because it’s incredibly healthy AND delicious. There are 101 ways to make chia pudding (maybe more) but today I want to share a few of my favorite combinations and how you can get super creative with your own pudding concoctions.

The Basics of Chia Pudding

Once you’ve got the basic principles of chia pudding down you’ll be able to create any combination of flavors you can imagine.

From there the options are endless! Just make sure to mix each combination up thoroughly so the chia seeds are evenly distributed and any powders dissolve completely. Try these and feel free to experiment with your own favorite flavor combos.
