How to make sugar-free vanilla chia seed pudding

This vanilla chia seed pudding recipe can be made as a Level 4 sugar-free recipe (completely sugar-free), or as a Level 3 (sweetened with fruit). You get to choose, my sweet sugar slayer.

My childhood is saturated with pudding: chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch, banana…my mother and grandmothers would bust open those Jello Pudding mixes, and lovingly heap that silken goodness into small, individual, fancy-pants, glass pedestal bowls.

Those sweet, individual servings were sometimes, also layered with vanilla cookies (Nella Waffers).

Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

In my sugar-free adulthood, my recipe for sugar-free vanilla chia seed pudding is my answer to recreating that wonderful pudding memory from my childhood. And…more often than not, I still create individual servings, but layered this time with banana instead of cookies.

I like to create my individual servings in small, glass jars with lids. I usually whip up my vanilla chia seed pudding recipe in a bowl, then pour out the mixture into each jar. Before serving, I top with goji berries, blueberries and banana.

The recipe can be made in less than 10-minutes. So, if you’re pressed for time, and want something sweet yet sugar-free, this recipe is your ticket.
