Peanut Butter Chia Pudding

Chia seed pudding is a perfect healthy breakfast or snack

vegan plant-based chia seed pudding recipe

This peanut butter chia pudding recipe takes only seven ingredients and about 30 minutes to come together. It’s creamy, delicious and dairy free!

Prep Time – 5 minutes
Setting Time – 30 minutes
Serves 2


  • ¾ cup dairy-free milk of choice, the creamier the milk, the richer the flavour will be
  • ¼ cup plain dairy-free yogurt (see note)
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. PB2 powdered peanut butter (see note)
  • 1-2 Tbsp. sweetener of choice, I used maple syrup (optional for added sweetness)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Optional toppings:

  • Sliced bananas
  • Homemade caramel
  • Chopped nuts
  • Peanut butter, or powdered peanut butter mixed with a little dairy-free milk in a 2:1 ratio


  1. Add all ingredients into a bowl.
  2. Whisk well to combine. Do this quickly so it doesn’t clump. You can also whisk everything but the chia seeds, then slowly add the chia seeds in while whisking to prevent them from clumping.
  3. Allow pudding to set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes; you can also make this the night before.
  4. Top with what you prefer and enjoy!


You can omit the yogurt but it gives a creamier end result. You can also use a thick and creamy milk-like coconut milk from the can to get the same creamy flavour.

The powdered peanut butter helps give this recipe a delicious yet lower-fat and calorie option. If you do not have it, you can use 2 Tbsp. peanut butter.
