Four ingredients are all it takes to make kefir chia pudding. Start with organic whole milk kefir and lightly sweeten it with pure maple syrup and vanilla. Whisk in chia seeds and pop the mixture into the fridge. After about 20 minutes the chia seeds absorb the kefir and the mixture thickens. That’s it- a simple kefir chia pudding recipe. Top with fresh berries, then grab a spoon and dig in.
Kefir Chia Pudding Recipe
1 cup organic whole milk plain kefir
2 to 3 teaspoons pure maple syrup or honey
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla
3 tablespoons chia seeds
Fresh fruit such as strawberries, blueberries or sweet cherries
Chopped toasted almonds
Toasted coconut flakes
In a medium bowl whisk together kefir, maple syrup and vanilla. Add chia seeds; whisk to combine. Refrigerate about 20 minutes, whisking occasionally to distribute chia seeds. Once the chia seeds have absorbed the liquid and the mixture has thickened the chia pudding is ready to eat. The chia pudding can also be spooned into individual bowls and stored in the refrigerator for a day or two. Add desired toppings before serving.

Tip: This kefir chia pudding is very lightly sweetened. If you love sweet more than tang, taste and adjust sweetness level of the kefir mixture before adding the chia seeds. Or, add a drizzle of additional sweetener as a topping.More chia recipes:
