Thai Tea Chia Seed Pudding

If you’re a fan of Thai iced tea, then you’ll love this Thai tea chia seed pudding!  It has all the flavors of the delicious drink packed into this lovely chia pudding dessert!

When I first started my low carb lifestyle, I basically only drank water and sparkling water.  Oh how little I knew back then.  When I was introduced to different sweeteners, that’s when life changed for me.

Chia seed pudding made with tea ice tea served in a glass topped with whipping cream and fresh mint.

I started making ice teas with flavored teas a little sweetener.  Before I knew it I was making all kinds of different drinks I used to love all the while staying low carb!

Some of my favorites that I still make on a weekly basis include Jasmine milk tea, iced matcha latte, sea salt iced green tea and of course my inspiration for this dessert, Thai iced tea!

When I looking for a new chia dessert flavor to add to our collection, I knew I had to add a Thai tea chia pudding.  The bold and creamy flavors of this popular tea really come through in this healthy chia dessert!

Now, if you’re wondering about the health benefits of chia seeds, there’s plenty!  With practically zero net carbs and a high fiber content, they might just be the perfect low carb dessert!  They’re also high in omega-3 fatty acids and loaded with antioxidants.

For the Thai Tea Bag, make sure you find “tea bags” and not the pre-mixed Thai tea pouches.  Those contain milk powder and sugar which is not what we want for this recipe.  What you’re looking for a just plain Thai Tea Bag that you brew yourself with hot water.

Just a tip we learned along the way, if your chia seeds are a little old, they may not absorb liquid as well.  If you find this to be the case, just add a little more chia seed to the mixture.

Also if you’re not familiar with chia pudding, it’s more a gel consistency and not like jello or custard.  If you prefer a thicker consistency, use less water or increase the amount of chia seeds!
