Your Chia Pudding questions Answered!

If you’re new to eating healthy or eating chia seeds, then you may have a few questions, such as…

Is Chia Seed Pudding bad for you?

No. It’s really plain and simple.
If you’re not adding sugar, processed foods, or too many ‘extras’ to the top of your pudding, chia seed pudding is not bad for you.

Is Chia Pudding actually good for you?

Chia seed pudding is actually good for you!
And why wouldn’t it be; it’s literally made of chia seeds, non-dairy milk, and then whatever flavor you want it to be.
In this case, chocolate- meaning cocoa powder.
And then it’s sweetened with maple syrup- a whole food.

Why is chia pudding so good for you?

Chia pudding is so good for you because it’s a delicious, mostly plant-based alternative to eating processed instant pudding (or pudding that you cook on the stove).
It’s also packed full of protein, fiber, and omega-3’s!

Is chia pudding vegan?

It absolutely is!
You wouldn’t be seeing a chia seed pudding recipe on This Site if it wasn’t vegan.
If you take a look at the ingredients, everything it is made of, you can easily see that chia pudding is super easy to make vegan.
Of course, there are ways to make it not vegan, for example by using dairy milk or honey. But we don’t do that here.
