We love keeping our fridge stocked with jars of chia pudding. We make a big batch of these on Sunday as we prepare for the week and enjoy them as a quick breakfast throughout the week.

Chia seed pudding is so filling and delicious! Here is my quick and easy Chia and oat milk pudding recipe we make quite a bit, but my kids love the fun blue color of this one.

Chia pudding is thick and gel-like, similar to other puddings. You can also puree it in a high-speed blender for a smoother texture.

Chia seeds provide many benefits to this dish, including fiber, protein, magnesium, vitamin B, zinc, phosphorus, calcium, omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants and iron!

Pair your blue chia pudding with spirulina powder which has many nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory qualities.

Spirulina is a crushed green or blue algae. The one in this recipe has a deep natural blue color and is also called majik blue. It has a slight oceanic flavor on its own but is completely undetectable in the pudding.

Butterfly pea powder is another healthy, naturally dyed powder that can be added to chia pudding. It has more of a purple tint. Another fun option is green matcha powder.

Ingredients and Substitutions

Ingredients labeled blue chia.Ingredients labeled blue chia.
  • Spirulina – Blue spirulina powder can be purchased online, in health food stores, or in many grocery stores. Look for it near supplements and protein powders. I highly recommend purchasing one that is organic and from a reputable company.
  • Vegetable Milk – Any type of whole plant milk works. I like the oat, almond and soy here. Light milk can create a thinner consistency. I don’t recommend canned coconut milk because it makes a very thick pudding.
  • Chia Seeds – White or black chia seeds work and both produce a brightly colored pudding when combined with spirulina powder. Make sure your chia seeds aren’t expired to ensure they expand enough instead of producing a runny pudding.
  • Sweetener -I like to use maple syrup as a natural sweetener here. Agave nectar or other liquid sweetener can work.
  • Vanilla – A touch of pure vanilla adds delicious flavor.
  • Toppings – Toppings are optional but so good in this pudding. The ideas are endless. I like to top mine with coconut yogurt, wheat germand fresh fruit. (Avoid wheat germ for gluten-free.)
