  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 cup macadamia nut milk or your preferred type of milk
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon zest of a Mandarin orange (like Cuties or Halo mandarins)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • Toppings of choice such as: fresh berries, nuts/seeds, extra drizzle of maple syrup, coconut flakes, etc.


  • CHIA SEED PUDDING: Into a covered container, combine all of the ingredients, except for the toppings, in the order listed. Stir to combine. Cover tightly and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes up to overnight (Chia seed pudding stays good for up to 5 days in the fridge.) or until thickened to the desired consistency.
  • SERVE: When ready to enjoy, stir the pudding again and top with desired toppings; we like fresh berries, coconut flakes, and an extra drizzle of maple syrup! If you'd like the pudding to be thicker, add additional chia seeds and chill for another 30 minutes; if you'd like it thinner, add a splash of more milk.
  • BLEND INSTEAD! Not sure about the texture? If you end up making this pudding and can't get on board with the texture, blend it up into a smooth vanilla pudding instead. Blend in a high-powered blender and then chill until cold.



  • Vegan/vegetarian: Vegans use no animal products at all, and vegetarians often use dairy products. Choose the milk that suits your dietary choices.
  • Nutrition information does not include any optional toppings.
