Basic Chia Seed Pudding >> 2 ingredient paleo breakfast

This simple 2-ingredient Chia Seed Pudding is the perfect gluten-free, dairy-free, and healthy paleo breakfast! It's also a staple while traveling -- be sure to read the travel tips before this recipe card.


  • ⅓ cup water
  • ⅓ cup Full Fat Coconut milk (if solid, warm until liquid)
  • 3 Tbsp Chia seeds


  1. Add all ingredients to a jar. Secure the lid and shake or stir until well mixed. Let rest for a minute, then shake or stir again. Let rest for another minute, then mix one more time.
  2. Let sit for at least two hours -- I prefer overnight. Top with fresh fruit, a drizzle of honey or maple syrup, and any spices you enjoy (I like cinnamon).


You can replace the 2/3 cup (150 ml) water-coconut milk combination with almond, hemp, or other plant-based milk. Water & coconut is my favorite.

This recipe makes a nice thick pudding. Add a little more liquid to thin.

You know you're finished shaking/stirring when the chia seeds are separated (not sticking together) and remain in the mixture rather than floating to the top (note that some will still float).
