Tips and Notes to make this Raspberry Chia Pudding

  • You can mash the raspberries with a potato masher, a fork, a spoon, or pulse it in a food processor.
  • Fresh raspberries have a stronger taste than frozen raspberries.
  • Frozen raspberries have more liquid so I recommend adding either less almond milk or more chia seeds to the mixture.
  • Alternatively, if you don’t want to mash the raspberries, you can blend them in a blender with the almond milk to combine. 
  • Chia seeds don’t have any taste to them on their own and take on the flavor of the liquid it is in. In this case, your chia pudding will taste like raspberries!
  • Don’t have maple syrup? Feel free to swap for honey or agave.
  • I suggest using real vanilla extract and not artificial since you aren’t cooking this recipe and you’ll taste the extract.
  • You can easily scale this raspberry protein chia pudding recipe up to multiple servings.
  • If you’re not a fan of almond milk, feel free to use cashew milk, soy milk, coconut milk, or dairy milk.
  • Make this into a dessert by topping it with whipped cream, shaved chocolate, and sprinkles!
