Pro Tip

If your chia seeds aren’t forming a pudding gel-like texture, check to see how fresh your chia seeds are. We’ve found older chia seeds may have difficulty absorbing the liquid.

How long is chia seed pudding good for?

Chia seed pudding can typically be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. This makes it a great make-ahead snack or meal prep option. However, keep in mind that the texture may change over time and the pudding may become thicker as the chia seeds continue to absorb the liquid.

If you find that the pudding has thickened too much, simply stir in a bit of extra liquid, such as coconut milk or almond milk, to thin it out before enjoying it.

  1. My pudding didn’t turn to pudding. It stayed liquid.

      Hi Robin! Was it liquid like water or thicker liquid? If the latter, that’s the texture of the pudding. It’s not going to be like a custard pudding type texture.

  2. Just wanted to comment that I made these with coconut cream (the ones in the can) and it was AMAZING. I then made them with coconut milk (also in a can), and it was still good, but not nearly as delicious as the creamy stuff. The cream definitely makes it thicker and more “pudding”-like. Thanks for the simple recipe.

      Hi Lisa! What a great idea! We’ll definitely have to try making some with coconut cream next time. You’re also welcome for the recipe and glad you liked it!

  3. I made mine with 1/2 cup milk 1/4 cup yoghurt and it turned out pretty thick delicious
