OMG. I’m totally obsessed with this Peanut Butter Jelly Chia Seed Pudding. I found myself actually saying “mmmm” over and over as I was eating it, it’s that good!
Basically it’s like eating a peanut butter jelly sandwich that tastes like dessert, in chia seed pudding form.
I will be eating this for breakfast for the foreseeable future.
You know I love my chia seeds and even though I make chia seed pudding all the time, I don’t think I’ve shared enough chia seed recipes on the blog!

To make this yummy chia seed pudding, all you have to do is combine chia seeds, powered peanut butter and plant-based milk of choice in a container and place in the fridge overnight.
In the morning, top with your favourite berries, more peanut butter and dig in! If you’re sad when it’s all over, don’t worry. Just make more.
- Add the chia seeds, almond milk, powdered peanut butter and optional stevia to small container, shake vigorously and place in the fridge for 30 minutes, or up to overnight.
- In the morning, lightly heat the frozen berries in a small saucepan or in the microwave then add to your pudding.
